It seems like Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting had her eye on something when she was negotiating her new deal to return to the show "The Big Bang Theory."

Cuoco, who plays Penny in the sitcom, was seen walking back to her brand new SLS AMG GT Mercedes-Benz after a yoga class in Sherman Oaks, California, on Wednesday.

The new supercar goes for $250,000-plus, which is no big deal to Cuoco who is set to earn a cool $1 million an episode for this season of the hit CBS show.

Cuoco had her arms full with a rolled up turquoise mat and bright pink bagfrom a Soul Cycle gym.

She was also able to check her smartphone as she strolled back to her car. She deposited most of her belongings in the trunk of the silver convertible.

After sliding behind the wheel of the pricy vehicle, she hit the button to retract the roof to enjoy the California sun and drove off, according to the Daily Mail.

Cuoco joined her cast mates Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter) and Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) in negotiating their huge pay raises for the eight season of "Big Bang," which focuses on four nerds and their friends.

Production for "The Big Bang Theory" was held up a week while the trio and other key cast members negotiated their new deals.

Cuoco, who married tennis pro Ryan Sweeting on New Year's Eve earlier this year, ultimately signed a 72-episode contract, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, that means Penny will earn $72 million over the next three seasons, plus a cut of the back-end.

Season 8 is scheduled to premiere with an hour-long episode on Sept. 22.

"Big Bang" is currently the number one rated comedy on TV with an average of 20 million viewers a week, according to Entertainment Weekly.
