(Newser) – Who cares about the paternity suit hanging over your head when you have a $160,000 car? Yes, that’s how much Justin Bieber dropped on a customized Range Rover, the Vancouver Sun reports, which means you can all stop feeling bad for him and go back to envying his lifestyle. Or you can go back to being annoyed with him, because it turns out he reportedly bought the car to impress his girlfriend, fellow teenybopper Selena Gomez.

CTV notes that the Range Rover is part of Project Kahn, which aims "to build special vehicles for a small circle of people who have the taste for exclusivity and the finer things in life." Finer, indeed: The Sun claims the sound system alone ran the Bieb $100,000, and the car also has a Cosworth engine, leather interior, and custom paint job. It will be shipped to Bieber, who also owns a Batmobile-themed Cadillac and a Ferrari, from England. Click to read about Bieber's dubious driving record.
