Fresh Celeb: Kanye West Driving A Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss

When you’re hanging with the jet set crowd – the rich, the famous, and the beautiful, there are several unwritten rules to remember. One is never be late and have your date wait on you, especially when they are Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, Charlene Wittstock, or Janet Jackson. To ensure your punctuality, arrive early and preferably, in style, as the second rule. Kanye West did just that and more when he attended the Cinema Against AIDS Gala at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival early this week. Arriving at the amfAR charity event, West drove in, along with buddy Virgil Abloh, on one of the most exclusive Mercedes-Benz, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: SLR Stirling Moss. The cost, $1.7 million. Capable of producing 650-horsepower, the V8 supercharged 2-seater was made to commemorate the outstanding histories behind 2 powerhouses in automotive racing – Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. The series first started in 2004 and ended in 2009 with its flagship, the SLR Stirling Moss. Carefully machined and crafted by hand, only 75 vehicles were produced, including the one driven by West. via: PCN
