Lara Bingle may be the hottest thing down under, but she’s a total Bungle when it comes to driving!
“I am not the best driver” she recently admitted. She of the long legs and perfectly sculptured face that's graced the world’s top fashion mags.
Here we see one supermodel climbing into another – a $300,000 Aston Martin V8 Vantage after a luncheon with her girlfriends at the posh Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo, Sydney.
The model was easily able to walk along the waterfront with friends and had no qualms in jumping into her new car in those sexy shoes, but driving in them may turn out to be another story entirely.
The car is a gift from her fiance, cricketer Michael Clarke (shown here).
"It is kind of difficult to drive. It is a heavy car. It has got a big front and lots of power…and I am used to driving a Mini, so it is one extreme to the other, I guess."
Let’s hope she has a bit more luck with the Aston Martin then she did with her Mini, where she ran out of gas on The Kingsway at Cronulla in April and in 2007 crashed into a neighbor's Laser after swerving to miss a dog outside her Yowie Bay home. Then there was the “minor” car accident in the Mini in Cronulla again last October (and this is the car she's "used" to driving!).
It would be easy to insert a blonde joke here – perhaps too easy – but we feel more compelled to suggest that Mr. Clarke invest in, say, a Range Rover Sport and take that Vantage away. Quickly.
