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.

Rowan Atkinson doesn't exactly have the best driving record but he sure knows how to pick out his cars. First it was his McLaren F1 (that he unfortunately crashed into a tree) and now this new red Mercedes Benz SLS. Hopefully he'll have a better track record with this SLS.

The cameras spotted british model, Kelly Brook filling up her new Mercedes-Benz SL550 in Hollywood recently. Besides this new SL, Kelly also has (or had) a Mercedes CL500 that her boyfriend of the time gave her, and a Range Rover Sport before that.
It doesn't matter what side of the pond she's on, Petra Ecclestone is always driving in style. Whether she's driving her bubblegum pink Rolls Royce Ghost through Beverly Hills or her older Rover in the streets of London, Petra has her choice of just about any car she can imagine. Her latest car, a Mercedes-Benz Brabus G63 with her standard personalized "P3TRA" plate was spotted on the streets of London recently and it's mean. What do you think of her Brabus G63?

Nyjah Huston took to Instagram recently to let his fans know that he sold his Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 -- the first car he ever bought. Parting ways with his first car probably hurt a little but I'm sure he wont miss it for long because from the sounds of it, Nyjah will be replacing it with something soon. Until then, his new Audi R8 and his Chevy Tahoe will have to do...
Any bets on what he'll buy next?
