Wyclef Plans Budget Sports Car Line

Classic car collector WYCLEF JEAN is planning to turn his lifelong hobby into a new business venture - by creating a new line of bargain sports vehicles.

The FUGEES star owns a fleet of classic cars, including a rare Pagani Zonda C12 and a F-1 McLaren he calls JOSEPHINE, and now he wants to offer replicas of some of his favourite cars to those who don't have his millions.

He says, "I want to make an affordable car for the kids. When I was growing up we had the Firebird, Thunderbird, etc... There's nothing catching the eye of kids, except for the Ferrari and Lamborghini.

"I want to give them the same look but with a more affordable price."

Wyclef hopes to have his CE car available in three years (08) and, in the meantime, he's considering turning his own impressive collection of motors into museum pieces - and charging fans to see them. All proceeds from the venture will go to Wyclef's Haitian relief charity YELE.
