What better way to compliment your supercar collection whilst simultaneously boosting your status than adding big cats to the equation? A few months ago, Arab, Humaid Abdalla AlBuQaish gained his fifteen minutes of fame by revealing to the world his car and big cat collection via Instagram. Not only does this mega-wealthy young man possess a lion, a tiger and a cheetah, he's best friends with them. Whilst they like nothing better than using expensive Italian machinery as climbing toys, they also reciprocate the love and affection Humaid Abdalla AlBuQaish gives to them.
For the rich men of the Gulf nothing says 'I'm loaded' quite like taking your pet cheetah out on a speedboat. A cheetah will set you back tens of thousands of dollars, whilst a rare white lion will go up to $50,000 - although this is a drop in the ocean for these mega-rich kids, the cats will add around 400-lbs in weight should they take them out for a spin.
This does seem a little cruel, but the cats are loved and treated well, and luckily for their owners, the Ras Al Khaimah Wildlife Park in the United Arab Emirates will always be there to adopt should you end up looking like a joint of meat to them.

Last weekend, DJ Afrojack was in Miami for the Ultra music festival and lets just say you couldn't miss him. Afrojack was spotted cruising around the streets in a bright red Ferrari 458 Italia Spider with his name plastered on the side to promote his upcoming album.
Tennessee Titans running back, Chris Johnson may be pretty young but that isn't stopping him from filling his garage with some pretty sick rides. Johnson posted a photo of himself in his garage with his white Maybach 57 and his latest addition, a white Ferrari 458 Italia Spider. He just recently added some new wheels to the 458 and shared a photo of the end result (below) and it looks sick.

The Entourage movie isn't set to hit theaters until next Summer, but filming is already underway in Los Angeles. Jeremy Piven and Liam Neeson were spotted filming scenes for the upcoming movie with Piven in a red Ferrari 458 Italia and Neeson alongside in a Bentley Continental.
...and now some bizarre news for today starring Richie Incognito...
TMZ first reported the news saying Richie Incognito's new Ferrari FF had been bashed with a baseball bat and that neighbors had reported the damage. Now, police are reporting that Incognito admitted to bashing the car himself. Can you say anger management issues?
So that's how the story stands now but who really knows what happened. Either way, this Ferrari is definitely going to need a little TLC.
Shout outs to Ken and Andrew for the tips!
