Taylor Lautner Gets a New Ride
08.02.11 by Mandy
Maybe Jacob Black doesn't get Bella in the Twilight series, but Taylor Lautner is doing just fine. TMZ reports that the 19-year-old actor/producer just dropped an estimated $200,000 at an L.A. Mercedes dealership on a silver 2012 SLS AMG. The gull-wing car goes from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds and is electronically limited to top out at around 200 mph. It sounds a little nicer than that motorcycle that Jacob rebuilt with Bella. Cullen envy, anyone?
To drop that kind of money on new car, Lautner must be pretty confident about his future success. Abduction, the first movie made by Lautner's production company opens September 23. He also appears in another little flick coming out this fall: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens November 18.
Did Taylor Lautner choose the right car? What car would you buy with his money? Should any teenage boy own a car that goes 200 mph, especially if his parents have to accompany him to the dealership? Tell us what you think in the comments.
