Cee Lo Green is known as much for his wacky sense of style as for his great music.   The recording artist also known as Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, Cee Lo Green has been making music since he was a child, and first gained widespread recognition performing with the groundbreaking hip hop group, Goodie Mob, in the early 90s.  After an unsuccessful attempt at a solo career in the early 2000s, he formed Gnarls Barkley with DJ Danger Mouse.  Their collaboration resulted in two hit records, and the pair continues to tour together sporadically.  He then relaunched his solo career during the summer of 2010, and has since enjoyed a steady string of successes.  In addition to releasing a massively popular solo album, which spawned a Gold and Platinum-selling single, he is also a judge/mentor on the hit singing competition show, "The Voice", and has begun recording a new album with Goodie Mob.  He is also writing a book, and voiced one of the characters in the recently released cartoon, "Hotel Transylvania".  The five-time Grammy winner has always seemed to march to the beat of his own drummer both musically, and with his choice of clothing.  His outfits are often topics of discussion on "The Voice", and he has clearly carried that funky aesthetic sense into his choice of car, as well.

Cee Lo Green's car is a custom Rolls-Royce.  The Rolls-Royce is synonymous with luxury, and is known for its leg room, smooth ride, and very upper-crust pedigree.  Royalty rides around in a Rolls-Royce.  Famous politicians appear in a Rolls-Royce.  Rolls-Royce vehicles have been around since 1906, and they have almost always been associated with quality and reliability.  Cee Lo Green's variation on the Rolls is definitely original.  The car somehow manages to be recognizably a Rolls-Royce, but could easily fit in at the local club.  The matte-black paint job, oversized wheels, and red accents help separate this Rolls from all others.  It is clearly made up of a mixture of influences, much like Cee Lo Green himself.
