If you know, you know

When it comes to purchasing exotic cars with questionable pasts, VINWiki founder Ed Bolian is certainly at the forefront of interested buyers, and his latest acquisition checks all the boxes.

As you may have been able to tell from the title, Ed bought Paris Hilton's Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. On top of becoming famous for its impressive performance, this particular car became famous for a late-night escapade involving Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and a less-than-flattering paparazzi shot involving Britney's undercarriage. Yes, it's the one you're thinking of.

Without giving too much away, Ed came across this car thanks to Tyler Hoover, who you might know from the YouTube channel Hoovie's Garage. Unfortunately, due to the two Lamborghinis that Tyler bought, he couldn't afford to buy this SLR as well and was just going to make a video about the listing. Ed simply couldn't let this one get away though and it seems the auction gods were on his side that day as he was able to buy it for himself.

The SLR received a 100-hour detail from Gloss It prior to making it to Ed's house to make it look as presentable as possible. It now adorns his driveway with its shiny gray paint job and will likely be featured in some of Ed's future videos, after he registers it and changes its 11-year-old tires (one of which was installed inside out). His wife has even expressed interest in driving it so who knows, maybe we'll see a Mrs. Bolian YouTube channel soon!
