Arquette drives his Avanti to the Lakers

April 8, 2011 12:00 AM

David Arquette, star of the upcoming film "Scream 4," was spotted driving his vintage Studebaker Avanti while going to a Lakers game in Los Angeles, reports Celebrity Cars Blog.

The convertible is a sports coupé that was built between 1962 and 1963, called "one of the more significant milestones of the postwar industry" by Maurice M. Hendry in an article from Automobile Quarterly.

Less than 6000 models were ever made during its years of production. The car was famous for its fiberglass body and square shape, according to "A coke-bottle waist formed the base for a thin-section roof with a huge rear window and a built-in rollbar. Razor-edged front fenders swept back into the curved rear, then into a jacked-up tail," states the Auto Editors of the Consumer Guide on

Despite the vehicle's popularity, it couldn't prevent Studebaker from going broke, which is why so few cars were made.

Reports did not state how long Arquette had owned the car for, but he was undeniably cool-looking stepping out of the white Avanti. It had a beige convertible too and polished metallic rims.
