Eddie Murphy has something better than a limo to get him to his upcoming gig hosting the Academy Awards ... a brand new $200K Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG similar to  the one Taylor Lautner recently purchased.

The 50-year-old was spotted getting out of his luxury ride's gullwing doors in L.A. this weekend.

For your consideration.
