We have decided to take a peek into their car-buying habits and present you with the most fascinating and most expensive, glossy examples in their collections.

From time to time we have the opportunity to work with different celebrities, and when Lance Stewart called us we were happy to answer. The popular prankster had an idea to fool his parents into believing that he had purchased a Lamborghini Huracan, when in reality it was a rental provided by Imagine Lifestyles. In his first of two videos he surprised the family with rides in the exotic sports car, claiming that he had just bought (much to the disbelief and concern of his mother).
In the second video he reveled the prank to his friends and family, and he might have broke dad’s heart just a bit. He also shows his visit to Imagine Lifestyles to pick up the car, and staff member Tom Messenger helping him with the rental.
It’s a scene as old as time, people are cheering, rice is flying through the air, and the bride and groom pause for just a moment before stepping into a luxury car to be whisked away. While that car is important, the focus is still on the bride, the groom, and of course her lovely white dress. Perhaps this is why more and more wedding planners have shifted to booking black luxury cars instead of white ones, so that the focus can remain where it belongs.
Weddings are often a celebration of purity, the purity of true love, the bond of the marriage, and the solitude of this newly formed relationship. Traditionally the bride will don a lovely white dress, which further symbolizes the purity of her intentions. As the rest of the wedding falls into place people have selected other white colored items in hope of completing a theme of color for the day. Recently however, it has been noticed that this can be a mistake, especially when it comes time to select a getaway vehicle.
It should come as no surprise that celebrities will rent mansions from time to time. Not everyone wants to settle down in one location, and many have a hard time paying $25 million at one time just to call themselves a homeowner. Instead, the A-listers decide to rent around the United States for a few months at a time. They settle into luxury in a variety of different mansions, providing marble, chandeliers, high-end appliances, and spectacular views.
1. Lenox Hill Townhouse
Sonya Morgan, one of the Real Housewives of New York, rents her townhouse, better described as a mansion. The five-story, five-bedroom home rents for approximately $32,000 a month. Located on the Upper East Side, it boasts landscaped gardens, several fireplaces throughout the home, and a spa-style bathroom. The master bathroom has a claw tub and a crystal chandelier that hangs over it, providing the ultimate level of luxury.
The latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’ can add another bragging right to its already extensive repertoire: It has the record for dollar damage from smashing up and otherwise annihilating perfectly good Aston Martin machines.
The Aston Martin DB10 car was created for use in the James Bond film only.
It is certainly an amusing tidbit to add to any conversation, as Spectre’s stunt coordinator Gary Powell recently did when he told Event magazine: “We set the record for smashing up cars on Spectre. In Rome, we wrecked millions of pounds worth. They were going into the Vatican at top speeds of 110 miles per hour. We shot one entire night for four seconds of film.”
Most know the tragic tale of Hollywood legend James Dean and his untimely death behind the wheel of his beloved Porsche 550 Spyder back in 1955. Since that time, numerous stories about the car being cursed continue to fascinate—along with the mystery of where the Porsche ended up when it disappeared somewhere between Florida and California during transport in the early 1960s. It seems someone has come forward claiming to know exactly where the car has been hidden all of these years.
Has the missing wreckage of James Dean’s Porsche 550 been discovered?
While hippie music legend Janis Joplin May have squalled lyrics asking, “Lord won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz”, when it came time to purchase, she went for a popular Porsche. The Porsche was the car of that era for celebrities and musicians, with such curb appeal that even the self-proclaimed anti-materialistic Joplin could not resist her charms.
That psychedelic Janis Joplin Porsche is now up for auction at the RM Sotheby’s “Driven by Disruption” sale coming in December 2015.
The special edition Aston Martin DB10 may not be available, but the brand is releasing another 007-inspired model for mass consumption: Meet the fully loaded Aston Martin Bond Edition DB9 GT. No, it is not the same as the DB10, but it comes with a complimentary Omega watch and even has some of the decadent features from the exclusive Aston Martin One-77 model.

The Aston Martin DB10 was crafted specifically to wow fans for the latest James Bond movie installment called “Spectre”, which came out this weekend following many months of buildup. The Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition features the same brilliant Spectre silver exterior coat and there are, of course, a set of special edition wheels on her. While there are no spy style weapons, bulletproof glass or ejection seats, the cockpit is lavish and it comes with the pricey Omega watch and matching luggage for stylish travel. This way, if the owners ever end up flying commercial, they can stand in any airport and glance frequently at their gorgeous watch while leaning gracefully on the luggage–tipping off passerby that they own a 007 car and would rather be hoisted away in a private jet. That really is not the point of the freebies; everyone knows that even the well-to-do types like free perks because it is human nature.
Fantasy Fest 2015 in trendy Philadelphia was a home run yet again this year, with Imagine Lifestyles Luxury Rentals front and center for all of the action. What is the fastest way to attract everyone within earshot to your booth? There is no megaphone required when you have two Lamborghini cars to rev up at the same time. It is the most exhilaration one can have in the presence of local vendors, exotic dancer booths and the standard cute beer stand girls. While the Lamborghinis were not open for rides that day–the plastic shark designed to toss riders off like a bull certainly was. Awkward? Indeed. Hilarious? You betcha.
