Chris Evans buys Britain's most expensive car - forwardone - 05-14-2010 12:02 PM

The Radio 2 DJ, who took over from Terry Wogan as the station's breakfast host, spent £12m on the vintage Ferrari 250 GT.

The 44-year-old, who is known for his admiration of expensive sports cars, sold three Ferraris from his collection to pay for the 1963 model, the Sun claimed.

The car cost £6,000 when it was first sold 47 years ago.

Evans posted a picture of his latest motor on Twitter with the caption: "The new one has arrived."

Only 36 of the 174mph top speed racing cars were made. The car has five manual gears and does zero to 60 in 6.1 seconds.

Earlier this week it was announced that Evans had beaten his predecessor, Sir Terry Wogan's record for the largest every audience for a British radio show.

His Radio 2 show averaged 9.5 million weekly listeners in his first three months in the job – a rise of almost 1.5m on Sir Terry who stepped down in December after 27 years.

In the same year a British buyer bought the same type of rare GTO that Evans has just bought for a record £15.7million.The arrival of his dream car comes in the week that Evans marked an all-time record radio audience, beating that of his predecessor, Sir Terry Wogan. The DJ, who famously left breakfast shows on Radio 1 and Virgin Radio under a cloud, has admitted he will have to continually 'prove' himself if he wants to escape his controversial past.
