Lots of high profile celebrities have been spotted out and about in their luxurious Mercedes-Benz cars. Mercedes-Benz cars are a popular choice for the rich and famous because they are so luxurious and ideal for those who want to make a statement.
Racing car drivers, film stars, pop stars and models are all jumping on the Mercedes bandwagon. Here is just a small selection of celebrities who own or have been spotted in a Mercedes car.
It's no surprise that Lewis Hamilton has to own a fleet of the most impressive Mercedes-Benz cars. The Formula One racing driving switched from McLaren to Mercedes at the end of the 2012 season, so he has a strong loyalty to the brand.
