Web Exclusive: Drive in style like Elvis

(CNN) - You could ride like the king if you can cough up the cash for a legendary limo!  A 1963 Rolls Royce Phantom 5 that belonged to Elvis Presley is up for auction next month. It includes some luxury features we take for granted today, like a car phone.  The custom limousine also included a built-in writing pad, microphone, mirror and lint brush.  There's even a custom cabinet with its own set of crystal glasses.  The Bonhams Auction House says the Rolls was repainted once because Elvis' mother's chickens pecked away at the shiny finish!  It can be yours for an estimated $200,000 to $300,000 bucks.

One of the rarest and most-valuable comic books ever printed is going up for auction and it could fetch millions of dollars for the seller!  It is a copy of "Action Comics #1."  It marks the first-ever appearance of "Superman."  eBay says it will be available on the auction site next month.  It's estimated just 50 copies remain and this one is said to be in the best condition of them all. An eBay appraiser calls the 76-year-old comic "pristine." 

Big news for the Late Show!
CBS announced Wednesday the show will stay at the Ed Sullivan theater when Stephen Colbert takes over for David Letterman in 2015.  Originally it was unclear if Colbert would host he the Late Show from the west coast, but CBS agreed to keep it in NYC after striking a favorable tax deal with the city.  Letterman has hosted his show from the historic theater for years.  He hasn't yet announced a final show date.

Mark this "hashtag #diversity"!  Twitter has posted a report on the demographic make-up of its workforce.  The statistics show the company's staff looks like that of many other tech companies: overwhelmingly male and white.  Overall, only three in 10 twitter employees are women.
59% percent of its workforce is white and among executives, more than 70% are male and over 70% are white.  Google, facebook and yahoo released similar reports over the past two months.  Twitter said in a blog post it has "a lot of work to do" when it comes to diversity.
