More than three months ago, Jaguar enlisted the aid of Mr. Kaves to give a Jaguar XKR-S a hip new look, applying freehand-style spray paint designs to the luxury sports coupe.

The pop singer, best known for her dessert-themed bras and colorful hair styles, has been voted the ultimate dream female passenger in a poll of British men by MPH, the Prestige and Performance Motor Show. And they voted for the car they’d like to take in a spin as well – the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Women got in on the voting in this survey too. They picked Twilight star Robert Pattinson as their number-one choice. And the car that really revs their engines is the Ferrari 458.
