Dangerous Car in Los Angeles

Dangerous Car in Los Angeles

Author: FutureCar Staff    

When it comes to celebrity car ownership, Britney Spears' garage may not be the most exciting among A-listers. However, some of the cars she has driven over the years have become iconic in their own right, despite being factory stock and far from impressive for a celebrity.

One such iconic car is the "most dangerous car in Los Angeles," which became the most photographed celebrity car of 2007. Brian Grams, the Director of the Volo Auto Museum, once remarked that some celebrities would give anything to receive the media coverage this car received in 2007.

This car belonged to Britney Spears in the months following her divorce from Kevin Federline. It coincided with a tumultuous period in the pop star's life, including her infamous head-shaving incident, umbrella attack on the paparazzi, and subsequent involuntary psychiatric hold that led to a 13-year double conservatorship.

During this time, Spears was constantly hounded by paparazzi, who often provoked her and filmed her incessantly. This explains how the car gained its fame and also accounts for some of the fender-benders she had while driving it.

The car in question is a 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 convertible, which may not be impressive on its own. Spears purchased it new from a local dealership and enjoyed driving it for several months. She used it for various purposes, including trips to the recording studio, personal errands, and nights out.

This convertible is the same car that Spears had several accidents with, including a hit-and-run charge and speeding violations. For celebrity car collectors looking for a unique addition to their lineup, this car could be the perfect choice. And conveniently, it is currently up for sale.

The Volo Auto Museum in Illinois is looking to sell the CLK350 as part of their inventory. While it has been a popular attraction at the museum, they have decided it's time for it to find a new owner. The car has over 29,000 miles on the odometer and comes in a factory-stock configuration.

Equipped with a 3.5-liter 268-hp engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission, the CLK350 features an all-black exterior and premium leather all-black interior. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and includes 10-way power seats, dual climate zones, auto headlights, one-touch windows, and keyless locks.

The car has a record of its various fender-benders but has been well-maintained. Its true appeal lies in its celebrity pedigree and the fact that it was the car Spears drove just before the conservatorship that restricted her ability to drive herself.

With an estimated price of $75,000, the car is listed for sale at just under $70,000, specifically $69,998. Imagine the stories this unremarkable ride could tell...
