Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have experienced no shortage of drama since announcing their engagement via the ring on the starlet’s finger. But that comes with the territory… what young Hollywood couple hasn’t fallen victim to breakup rumors. Of course, with Cyrus in the mix, the provocative moments, Twitter talk and boundaries-pushing buzz comes at perhaps a much faster, more regular clip. She also recently shocked with her daring new uber-cropped, platinum, androgynous haircut, which Hemsworth apparently likes just fine, and she continues to surprise with her punk, grunge and pretty revealing fashion statements.
But both Cyrus and Hemsworth were drawing stares during one of their latest outings. It seems they have a new “baby” in the mix, and this one is far flashier (albeit a bit less cute) than Ziggy, the adopted pup Cyrus gave her Australian actor-hunk for his birthday a few months ago. Along with the brood of dogs the couple has in their little family, they’ve added a $200,000 McLaren.
Not exactly a “family” car, but it will do for now!
As Daily Mail reports, the two stars were spotted driving the sleek, super-sporty set of wheels, colored in a gleaming silver hue, around Los AngelesÂ—as if Miley Cyrus’ hair wasn’t loud and bright enough to attract attention!
The rear-wheel drive McLaren MP4-12C is designed using Formula 1 technology and is powered by a mid-mounted bespoke M838T 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine with a carbon fiber chassis. Say what?! For those not well-versed in auto-speak, this all apparently is a good thing. What is certain is that Cyrus and Hemsworth’s new toy is one hot ride. And it better be, given the price tag.
The McLaren brings to mind another hot young topic, Justin Bieber, and his own collection of carsÂ—especially his chrome-wrapped Fisker Karma. Cyrus and Hemsworth may want to watch out, though, and not take things too fast, or they may be getting stopped by the police for a traffic ticket. Bieber could tell them all about that, too.
