HOLLYWOOD HILLS - Steven Tyler stated that he was thrilled that his brand new $1.1 million Hennessey Venom GT Spyder has a sticker price that is higher than Simon Cowell's Bugatti Veyron, which is listed at an even $1 million.
The American Idol judge and front man for Aerosmith has always prided himself in being able to one up others when it comes to high priced toys.
Tyler said that back in March he had seen a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder at a Hyundai dealership in Las Vegas but it was listed at $997,000.
So when he came across the Hennessey in the showroom of a KIA dealership in El Segundo and noticed that the sticker price was $1.1 million he immediately had the salesman draw up the paperwork.
Tyler informed Macadamia Honeysuckle with LaLaLand Limelight that he is now the proud owner of the fastest street convertible in the entire United States.
"Lips" as he is known, remarked that his 'Baby' can go from 0 to 200 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
He has even issued a challenge to Simon "The Sultan of Sarcasm" Cowell to a race in which the loser will donate $100,000 to the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Cowell reportedly stated that he does not race his $1 million car and it is strictly used as a chick magnet now that he has broken off his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy whom he met when she first became his personal diction coach.
Tyler has only given one person a ride since purchasing his fabulous car. He took fellow American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez for a spin up the Pacific Coast Highway.
According to Miss Honeysuckle J.Lo's boy toy Caspar Smart was not a happy camper to say the least.
He expressed that sentiment to his "Cougar Mama" who merely replied that she looks upon Steven as an uncle.
When Tyler was told of J.Lo's remark he made a face and said that he most definitely does not look upon Lopez as a niece.
Meanwhile, Caspar was asked if he plans on breaking up with Jennifer over the car incident. He looked at Miss Honeysuckle and said, "Say hon, I may be dumb, but I ain't stupid."
He the gave Honeysuckle a wink and a fist bump.
