"We don't do anything for ratings." That was Kim Kardashian, explaining to Oprah Winfrey how she had only the best intentions when she became Mrs. Kris Humphries in an E!-filmed extravaganza. But Kim didn't exactly aim for a low profile while taking in the sights of Paris with boyfriend Kanye West last weekend.
Paparazzi snapped the two driving around in a white convertible Lamborghini that costs enough to fund several four-year college scholarships, with plenty of cash left over for beer and Funyuns.
According to People, Kimye popped into a Parisian Lamborghini dealership to pick up the car, which is similar to the ridiculously lavish vehicle Kardashian reportedly bought West for his recent birthday (estimated price: $750,000).
But they might have been better off hopping on the Metro. The pair's attempt to cruise around the City of Light was stopped by a traffic jam, and it took them an hour to go fewer than three miles to the Eiffel Tower.
"Basically, the car is like a jet airplane," a spy laughs to the mag, "but they didn't plan on Paris traffic on a Sunday afternoon."
Observes another bystander, "It was actually kind of funny. I mean, how often do you see anyone behind the wheel of a Lamborghini looking kind of bored?"
On the plus side, the slow-motion motoring meant shutterbugs had ample opportunity to capture their PDA.
Upon reaching their destination, Kim pulled the usual tourist move: tweeting a photo of herself in front of the landmark, albeit while riding shotgun in a luxury car.
