Chris Evans treats himself to another Ferrari
Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has splashed out on a new present to himself to celebrate the roaring success of his breakfast show.
The radio presenter has reportedly spent £12m on a glorious example of a 1963 Ferrari GTO.
While the sellers RM Auctions are unable to confirm the buyer of the car due to a client confidentiality agreement, or even how much was paid for it, Evans himself appears to have laid claim to the keys by posting a picture on his Twitter account of a car that looks remarkably similar to the one that was for sale...
The 250 GTO on auction was one of 36 that were made, and just one of a handful with this limited edition bodyshell. Although Evans is worth an estimated £44m, it has been said he sold several of his existing fleet of exotic cars to pay for this new addition to his collection. The DJ is an avid fan of Ferraris, and has made headlines for his purchases in the past.
The good news therefore is that this fine example will be in good hands, and is likely to be used, as Evans tends to enjoy his classic car collection, rather than letting it sit under a dust sheet in a garage.
