Who doesn’t want a Mercedes SLR McLaren? It is, after all, the quintessential swank supercar. But in the hunt for the ultimate SLR, certain sports stars may have received one too many knocks on the noggin, making themselves believe that they need an auto-edge over peers.

English Footballers William Gallas (Arsenal) and Ello Hadji Diouf (Blackburn Rovers) paid mega bucks for their own blinged out and bastardized custom chrome Mercedes SLRs. I can just imagine the cost for car insurance on these.

In the event that for some unknown reason these sports stars get a little too heady, they can always reflect on their purchase.
