Soccer players and their wifeys together with their passion for the really expensive stuff add fuel to the fire of luxury news. At first it were just the Beckhams followed by one offs like the Rooneys but not anymore as the Coles too join in the uber-rich spending club. Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole and his pop star wife Cheryl Cole have just got themslevers one of those stunning mini cars that we just love to see on the road.
Theirs is a black Mini Hummer H3 and apparently, Cheryl bought it for her hubby at $22,946 who always dreamt of owning one ever since Chelsea captain John Terry got his.
The Coles have also customised their dream machine with some extra spurts of bling that cost them an extra $8,195. So now the wheels are accentuated by gold-plated hubcaps and a gold-plated grill. Even the headrests bear the couple’s initials, AC and CC (which we think is a little bizzare because can women not want to ever drive!); all this done with the aid of Swaorovski crystals. A Sony Xplod stereo system and a mobile video system will keep the couple entertained as they zoom out for a drive comfortable in leather upholstery. Some extra space has been kept in the back for Ashley’s gold clubs. Hey, running on electricity this one is eco-friendly too.
