Singer/Songwriter Amy Macdonald has just purchased a Ferrari 458 Italia in her native Scotland. She will be the first to admit that the $230k (£170k across the pond) sports car is not the most feminine choice, but we would never fault her for her passion. “I like all cars, it’s a sad hobby of mine,” she says. “I know all the stats and figures of all the cars coming out.”
But the least womanly outburst was yet to come. “I just like cars. I’m like Jeremy Clarkson.”
Very few women have likely made that self-comparison, and aside from shopping for automatic weapons, even fewer people would elect to take Clarkson along as a road trip companion over Macdonald.
Although Macdonald is a ‘petrol head’, she probably isn’t gunning for the television presenter’s job just yet. Macdonald has just released her third album, and purchasing the Ferrari was likely to commemorate the occasion. In 2009 she celebrated 2.6 million album sales by buying an Audi R8.
