Do you care about a $600,000 car? Well, me either, in theory. Today, coming home from a morning by the pool at SoHo House (THAT I care about), I was walking through my neighborhood, the Meatpacking District, and encountered a DJ, lots of lookey-loos, and one very expensive car. The new 2014 Rolls-Royce’s Wraith in cobalt blue. If cars can be sexy, this one is a dirty whore. Honestly, there have been better looking cars, even Rolls-Royce’s in history. But we know these cars are designed for a certain type of rich guy, so they all look kinda alike. And for that price tag you could get a Bentley Continental GT and a Mercedes CL600, a slightly used Cirrus SR22 airplane and a George Condo painting, or a nice two bedroom condo in SoBe. What do I drive, you ask? I have a black 2001 Volvo station wagon with 150,000 miles on it (there she is outside my front door). Believe me, I want her to keep going, so I’m not letting her know I was checking out that Wraith slut. No way.

According to Hong Kong art site Juxtapose, the obscure Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor created this huge art ball by “transforming, fusing and morphing” a vintage 1953 VW Beetle into a big yellow globe. It was installed at the recent Art Basel show in Hong Kong. Japan Times says the artist has done this sort of thing to five other Volkswagen Beetles. (via towleroad)
The glamorous Sharon Needles, recently crowned winning queen of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 4, used some of her $100,000 prize money to buy her very first set of wheels – a shiny vintage hearse. “Buying my first car today,” she tweeted last weekend. “Hope nothing goes wrong… I’m so used to brooms.” (via Reality Nation)
