The Hilton heiress wanted to buy a Bentley for a long time, especially a pink one. In December 2008 she bought for Christmas this extremely pink expensive car. And not just that, she had the body and hubcaps of her Continental LT spray painted Pepto Bismol pink, replaced the trademark Bentley initials with her own, and had the windows tinted so that the paparazzi couldn’t snap photos of her inside. It’s worth $200,000. Now the dimwit socialite has ordered a $400,000 diamond encrusted dashboard to add a lil more sparkle.
Recession seems a distant island to her. It has been reported that Paris, 27 will get the blingy dashboard flown out from the firm’s British Headquarters in Crewe to be fixed on her Continental GT in Los Angeles. Paris got one of her guys to phone Bentley in Crewe, to explore the possibility. And a source at Bentley said, “When the man said she wanted to stud the dashboard with a couple of hundred grand’s worth of diamonds, we were stunned. We’re used to dealing with the stars so we expect the odd extravagance, but this is something else.” When asked about her car, Paris gushed: “I’ve just always wanted a pink car. I think when you’re a little girl and you have the Barbie Corvette you’re always like, ‘Oh, I wish I had a car like this one day’. I think it just comes from being a fan of Barbie for so long.” I think Barbie’s Fiat-500 is so much better. Well, love her or hate her, the Hilton heiress definitely knows how to create the buzz.
