The Mirror (UK), 23 February 2005**

SINGING star Enya has splashed out pounds 450,000 on a flash limousine that can do 190mph.

The reclusive Irish millionaire has joined a group of Ireland's elite owners of a Mercedes-Benz Maybach 62.

Racing tycoon John Magnier and property supremo Johnny Ronan have already spent a fortune to own the ultimate luxury car.

A 550hp bi-turbo V12 engine takes the mammoth 21ft car to 60mph in 5.2 seconds. It also has a champagne chiller, drop down TV screens and fully-reclinable rear seats.

A source close to Enya revealed: "She absolutely loves the car - it is a dream for her to get one.

"Enya is not normally one to spend a fortune on cars but she couldn't resist this."

Note: Wow, Enya buys a car! There may be those who believe Enya floats around on a set of faery wings, but the rest of us aren't surprised that she travels in style and comfort! Enya is believed to have bought a Maybach 62, the model specifically designed as a chauffeured drive. If you need to update your set of wheels and want to emulate our favorite non-New Age, Non-Celtic singing star, take a look at the Maybach USA website, and see how you can outfit yourself with the car of your multi-vocaled and harmonized dreams! By the way, this is not Enya's Maybach. How do you buy a Maybach? A reporter chronicled his experience at the marque's London showroom, and the video can be found on YouTube.com: How to Purchase a Maybach
