Patrick Dempsey
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Approximate Base Price: $202,000
We're thinking Patrick Dempsey was perfectly happy when paps snapped a shot of the "Grey's Anatomy" star in his Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG recently. After all, you don't buy a $200,000 car with gullwing doors unless you want to be noticed ... and have a bunch of money in the bank thanks to starring in a hit TV series for eight years. He's clearly got a thing for cars; Dempsey also races them in his spare time.
