Prius Super Bowl Ad Cops Call BS ... That Thing Will NEVER Outrun Us!

2/8/2016 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

That Prius Super Bowl commercial rubbed cops the wrong way -- not because it made high speed chases look like good, clean fun ... but because it's a big fat lie!

Several law enforcement sources tell us the Prius spot was hysterically unrealistic. One source said, "Loved it, funny as hell ... like a Prius is going to outrun anything."

Other reviews included:
- "overdone"
- "silly"
- "you can't outrun a helicopter"

They've got a point. The new Prius 4 tops out around 105 mph, while a police cruiser can do at least 120 mph -- and their 0-60 times are a laughable 10.5 seconds compared to 6 flat.

Now, a few sources were concerned about the ad's overall message, saying ... "I had to tell my kids running from cops is a bad thing." But the overall take on Prius' attempt to look worthy of a felony -- "goobery and dumb."

Jaden Smith I'm the Chosen One ... To Get a Tesla X!!

EXCLUSIVE

0202_jayden_smith_tesla_model_x_launch4Jaden Smith really does have a direct line to God -- or at least Elon Musk -- since he managed to score one of the first new Tesla SUVs.

Jaden was stuntin' in his Tesla X Monday evening in L.A. ... as well he should -- the brand new vehicle's release has been delayed more than a year. Even people who put in early deposits have had to wait and wait and wait.

The fully electric whip, with those awesome falcon-wing doors, does 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds.

Jaden's called himself a prophet. At this point, who the hell are we to argue?

NFL's Lance Briggs Case Closed In Porsche Crash

2/1/2016 10:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0201-lance-briggs-GETTY-01The Chicago PD says the crash investigation involving a Porsche registered to Lance Briggs is now officially closed -- and the NFL star WILL NOT be arrested or charged with a crime. 

We broke the story ... the Porsche was found smashed into a bartending school on the morning of January 20th -- and no one seems to know how it got there or who was driving. 

When cops arrived, there was no driver on scene. Cops would not say if Briggs was involved in the crash ... but TMZ Sports has confirmed the car is registered to the ex-Chicago Bears linebacker. 

Cops looked into the crash and ultimately determined it was a "regular auto accident" -- not a hit and run -- and therefore a civil matter. 

We spoke with Officer Sedezic who confirms the case is officially closed, the civil matter has been resolved -- and no tickets will be issued. 

Sources with close knowledge of the case tell us ... someone did come forward claiming to be the driver -- an associate of Briggs -- and that person settled the matter through his insurance company.

As for Lance, we reached out to him about a billion times -- and briefly spoke with him on the phone before publishing this story -- but he refused to comment.  

He did however tweet about the situation on the day of the accident -- saying he "Ubered home" -- but never explained how his car ended up in the front of a bartending school.

EXCLUSIVE

0129-main-floyd-bugatti-tmz-03Floyd Mayweather's insane shopping spree continues ... this time, he's dropping $3.5 mil on a brand new Bugatti that hasn't even been released yet ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Our sources tell us.... Mayweather wants to upgrade his Bugatti collection and sold one of his older Bugattis to make space for a 2017 Bugatti Chiron.

Floyd's old car was spotted outside of a luxury hotel in Scottsdale, AZ -- along with his car guy Obi Okeke from DoctorBugatti.com -- where it was being loaded up into a shipping truck to be delivered to the buyer. 

0129-sub-floyd-bugatti-tmz-02Mayweather won't get his new car until the spring -- when it's officially released -- but according to Car and Driver, it's a BEAST ... an 8.0-liter W-16 engine with 4 turbos to make 1500 hp and an estimated top speed of 288 mph.

It's just another insane piece for Floyd's collection -- which already includes a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ... valued around $5 million.

Final price tag ... $45k.

Veteran move by the kid ... we all know the thots come out at night.
