One Direction's Harry Styles adds classic Ford Capri to car collection

One Direction's Harry Styles adds classis Ford Capri to car collection

Pop crooner Harry might only be 19-years of age but he has already amassed a collection of cars that would have most ardent petrolheads green with envy.

But the pop star's latest purchase isn't what most would expect a young, adrenaline-seeking teenager to splash the cash on. In fact, the purchase wouldn't look out of place on a nostalgia-seeking middle-aged man's bank statement.> Styles was recently pictured driving away in his new 1970's Ford Capri that adds to the burgeoning garage that includes an Audi R8 and a Range Rover, despite only holding a driving licence for two years.

The Capri was popular in the '70s and '80s thanks to its elongated front end and rumbling 3-litre V6 under the bonnet. A bright green version famously appeared in the sitcom Only Fools and Horses, where Rodney dubbed Del Boy's motor the 'pratmobile'.

Earlier in the year, Harry was snapped taking a stunning bright red Jaguar E-Type out for a test drive around Hampstead, London. Styles then jumped into a powerful £82,000 Porsche Carrera Sport Classic while he weighed up which one to purchase next.

Exactly why he opted for a Ford Capri is unclear but there's not denying the boy has an eye for vintage collectors' items.

The Sun reported that Simon Cowell paid each of the One Direction band members a £2million bonus after the group made over £100million for the music mogul.

With that kind of money, Styles can afford to splash out on the likes of a Bugatti Veyron (from £839,285) or even the super-rare Aston Martin One-77 (£1.7million).
