LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Score one for Team Jacob!
“The Twilight Saga’s” Taylor Lautner, 19, recently dropped some serious cash on a star-worthy sexy new ride – a 2012 SLS AMG Mercedes-Benz priced at more than $200,000.
“It’s very cool,” Taylor told Access Hollywood of his impressive new wheels at the 2011 Hollywood Foreign Press Association Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Thursday. “I’ve been driving my first car for the past four and a half years and I’ve always had my eye on this car.”
The heartthrob – who looked dapper in a suit by Calvin Klein – said the privilege of being able to afford a car of such high caliber has not been lost on him.
“It’s beautiful and I’m extremely fortunate,” he said.
In addition to the incredibly highly anticipated upcoming “Breaking Dawn” films, Taylor will next be seen in John Singleton’s action thriller, “Abduction,” alongside Lily Collins, Alfred Molina and Sigourney Weaver.
“I’m super excited — it’s coming out in like a month and a half now,” Taylor told Access of his “Abduction” anticipation.
“It was a fast process — we filmed it last summer,” he added. “But it’s been a journey since then. It’s coming together really well. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
Catch Taylor on the big screen when “Abduction” hits theaters on September 23.
