It’s not a secret that stars of most industries like their cars. Some desire fast cars while others want a top price tag and lots of bling.
“Grey’s Anatomy” is one publicized fan and participant in car racing and often with Mercedes-Benz.
Today, from the music world, we find Usher overseas at the MB plant helping build the engine to his new SLS AMG and trying out the new A 45 AMG at the test track. Sweet work if you can get it, right?
Earlier this month, Usher helped assemble the final parts of his V-8 engine as the photos endorse. Later, right on cue, he opined this of M-B. “When I think about luxury, the first thing that comes to mind is Mercedes. So it was a very special moment for me when I was able to buy a Mercedes-Benz for my mom. So far it was the only car I have given her as a gift”, explains Usher.
Until his new car is delivered, Usher is making do with a CLS 63 AMG, poor thing.
Building the engine out amped his excitement for his test drive in the A 45 AMG. “I can hardly wait to get behind the wheel”, said Usher. “It looks so absolutely cool and sexy, and I’m really excited about experiencing the power of the first AMG four-cylinder turbo engine.”
