Dangerous Car in Los Angeles

Dangerous Car in Los Angeles

Author: FutureCar Staff    

Britney Spears' garage may not be the most exciting in terms of celebrity car ownership, but some of the vehicles she has driven over the years have become iconic in their own right, despite being factory stock and unimpressive for a celebrity.

One such iconic car is known as the "most dangerous car in Los Angeles" and was the most photographed celebrity car of 2007. It gained significant media coverage during that year, attracting more attention than some celebrities could ever hope for. This car belonged to Britney Spears in the months following her divorce from Kevin Federline, coinciding with some of the most chaotic events in her life.

During this time, Spears was constantly hounded by paparazzi, who often provoked responses from her and recorded her every move. This explains how the car became so famous and also accounts for some of the fender-benders she was involved in while driving it.

The car in question is a 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 convertible, which may not be impressive on its own. Unlike other celebrities who customize their cars extravagantly or drive the latest models, Spears has always preferred more ordinary vehicles. She bought this car new from a local dealership and enjoyed driving it for months, using it for various purposes such as going to the recording studio, running errands, and partying.

This convertible is the same car that Spears had several accidents with, including a hit-and-run charge and speeding violations. Now, the Volo Auto Museum in Illinois is selling it as part of their inventory. Although it has been on display at the museum and attracted many visitors, it is time for the car to find a new owner.

The CLK350 has over 29,000 miles on the odometer and features a 3.5-liter 268-horsepower engine paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. It has an all-black exterior and interior in premium leather, 17-inch alloy wheels, 10-way power seats with memory positions, dual climate zones, automatic headlights, one-touch windows, and keyless locks. Despite its history of fender-benders, the car has been well-maintained and comes with the added allure of its celebrity pedigree.

What makes this relatively ordinary ride even more appealing is the fact that it was the car Spears drove just before her conservatorship, which stripped her of the ability to drive herself. The car is listed for sale at an estimated price of $75,000, asking for just under $70,000.
