R+B star Craig David has purchased an expensive new car in a reported move
to strengthen his street credibility - even though he doesn't have a driving
The 23-year-old SEVEN DAYS singer is importing a custom built Hummer to
the UK at a cost of $216,000 (GBP120,000) after spotting some of today's
biggest urban stars riding around in similar models.
The vehicle boasts heated leather seats, a built-in DVD player and
PlayStation 2 games console, a $27,000 (GBP15,000) stereo system and
state-of-the-art satellite navigation technology.
A friend says, "He saw hip-hop star Pharrell Williams driving one in Los
Angeles and thought it was so cool. He wants a bit of that credibility.
"Craig's just moved into his GBP1.3 million Hampstead (London) bachelor
pad. His neighbours are Emma Bunton and Justin Hawkins and there are a lot of
flash cars around."
But David will have to confine his car to a nearby parking space as he's
yet to acquire a license to drive.
