Britney goes Maserati shopping

Britney Spears paid a visit to a Maserati dealership to test drive one of the firm's luxury motors.

The singer sat in the passenger seat of the £100,000 black GranTurismo as the salesman talked her through the car's features.

However, it's her father that will make the final decision on whether the international popstar can buy the car. Jamie Spears assumed control of his daughter's finances in January 2008 after Britney suffered a public breakdown. His guardianship was extended in last December, and could last between six months and a year.
