Today there's a bit of a luxury theme to the news, with Audi, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Tesla, and Smart all catching headlines. At TheCarConnection, the luxury angle is centered around the upcoming L.A. Auto Show and video game production, while Motor Authority sees reports of a limited-edition Ferrari 599 GTO and a MINI by Rolls Royce on the horizon.

That same Rolls Royce MINI is making waves at GreenCarReports, in part because hyper-luxury carmakers usually don't do much in the realm of real green motoring. The MINI brings some serious cred to the idea, but it remains to be seen if it'll be anything more than a re-badge.

CelebsAndCars has a double dose of diva for us today, with Rihanna and Mariah Carey making car-themed cameos in front of the paparazzi lens. Read the stories for the details, but note the slasher-themed headlines.

Around the rest of the High Gear Media network we have some more entertaining and informative stuff, including news of what's going on behind the scenes at Aptera, and early look at the 2011 Ford Mustang and a list of ten features most car buyers say they can't do without.
