Paris Hilton has traded in her yellow Japanese supercar because it reminds her of her ex-boyfriend for a white version worth $375,000.

The hotel heiress received the Lexus LFA convertible, of which only 500 exist, as a 30th birthday present from her former lover Cy Waits in February and although she wanted to get rid of all reminders of him after their recent split, Paris loved the car so much she simply swapped it for a different colour, the Huffington Post is reporting.

Perhaps the 30-year-old hotel heiress was keen to remove all traces of Cy from her life because she has got a new love interest.

Paris was reportedly "making out constantly" with the 'Hangover: Part II' director Todd Phillips at a private event at her home in Malibu, California, earlier this month.

An onlooker said: "Paris and Todd were all over each other. He had his hand permanently glued to her behind. They were making out constantly.

"Paris was hanging on Todd, hugging and kissing him off and on. She and Todd didn't walk in together, but it wasn't as if they were trying to hide."
