You Could Buy One of Britney Spears' Cars

Posted: March 25, 2008

People reports that a court has given Britney Spears' dad, Jamie Spears, "the power to 'sell or dispose of' an undisclosed number of her seven cars." Fox News says that a lawyer for Britney's father stated that "the cost of upkeep for Brit's army of vehicles was really running up the bills." According to NME, Mr. Spears "will maintain control of the estate until a hearing on July 31."

Britney's fleet of cars includes a Mercedes-Benz SL65 Roadster and CLK350 Convertible, a MINI Cooper Convertible and an undisclosed Audi.   Autoblog notes that a classic 1956 Porsche 356A Speedster may be among the lot as well.

The Mercedes convertible may be the most famous of the brood, as it's been involved in several incidents over the past year. These include the pop star's run-in with the law when she illegally parked in a handicapped space (as reported by US magazine) and, on a separate occasion, ran over a cop's foot (as reported by People). In 2006, Brit's MINI Cooper also gained notoriety when she was photographed driving with her young son's infant seat facing the wrong way, MSNBC reported.

So when will the famous singer's car troubles end? Only time will tell, but for now, check out how the Britster's (soon to be former) cars do in the U.S. News car rankings.
