Bingle has trouble driving her Aston MartinDecember 10th, 2008 - 5:14 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Dec 10 (ANI): Lara Bingle has said she still finds it difficult to drive the flash James Bond-style Aston Martin presented to her by fiance Michael Clarke last week.
Bingle, who made a flying three-hour visit to Melbourne last night to attend the opening of the Vodafone store at Crown, was given the 300,000 dollar mean machine as an early Christmas present by her cricketing beau, the Daily Telegraph reported.
I only got it the other day and have only driven it once. I am not the best driver. It is kind of difficult to drive. It is a heavy car. It has got a big front and lots of power. I am used to driving a mini, so it is one extreme to the other, I guess, Bingle said.
Bingle described the luxury vehicle as the glamour couples second car.
He (Clarke) likes it as much as I do. It is probably more for him than me,” she said.
Bingle will spend Christmas Day in Melbourne as Clarke prepares for the Boxing Day Test at the MCG.
She said the couple would celebrate Christmas early, opening presents with their families in Sydney tomorrow.
It is a bit weird, the timing. I cant cook, but Ill see what I can do. It will be great having the families together, she said. (ANI)
