We have attempted to go to the ends of the earth to bring you the latest news surrounding celebrities and their cars. This week, celebrities have been buying, selling, giving away, and crashing their cars, so let's take a closer look.

Bieber Buys Ferrari

As if you didn't need another reason to hate Justin Bieber, he took delivery of his brand new Ferrari 458 Italia this week. Bieber customized his car with a Liberty Walk kit, which includes side skirts, wheel arches, and a front splitter. He chose to have the car wrapped in a Frozen Blue Chrome to match his new wheels. The car was worked on by West Coast Customs, who posted it on Instagram.



Bret Michaels' Fender Bender

Musician and reality star Bret Michaels was driving his Mercedes in Scottsdale, Arizona when he bumped into the car in front of him, which was driven by an elderly woman. The authorities did not get involved and it's likely that the woman now has Bret's address and phone number.

Ray J Gives Gift

Ray J's ex Princess Love attacked him in February, but he still decided to get her a nice birthday present, a 2015 Mercedes S63 AMG.
