Muniz, who is of Puerto Rican and Italian descent, reportedly purchased the car when he was 16 for $100,000.
“I got pulled over by cops 20 times the first year for bumping the @Ludacris ‘Word of Mouf’ CD too loud. Setting off car alarms as I rode by,” he tweeted last week. “This car took me on my first date, picking up @HilaryDuff.”
