Chris Evans buys Britain's most expensive car

Friday May 14, 2010

After breaking records with the biggest radio audience ever this week, Chris Evans decided to celebrate the happy news with a new treat for himself.

The flame-haired presenter has splashed out £12million on a vintage car.

Now the proud owner of a 1963 red Ferrari 250 GT, Chris has already shown off the new purchase on his Twitter page, stating: "The new one has arrived".

The 44-year-old sold his three existing Ferraris to pay for the dream car, which reportedly cost £6,000 in the Sixties.

"We are pleased to have been able to unite this exceptional car with a new and immensely enthusiastic owner. It's fantastic that this car will now be used in earnest on the classic car scene around Europe," says managing director of the auction house in which Chris made the purchase.
