Jeremy Clarkson celebrates new supercar with a glass of wine
In his Top Gear days he was zooming around in a different supercar every week.
And after signing a huge deal with Amazon for his new motoring show, it looks like Jeremy Clarkson is keen to get back in the driver's seat.
The TV presenter was spotted taking delivery of a $626,000 McLaren 675LT over the weekend at his London home.
It looked like the star was toasting the arrival as he relaxed with a glass of wine and a cigarette, while kicking back in a checked shirt and jeans.
The bright orange car, which can go from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and boasts a top speed of 205mph, was later seen driving up to his home in the capital.
Jeremy's close friend Phillipa Sage was also spotted arriving with a bag full of shopping and matching the TV star's low-key style in striped jeans and a denim jacket.
It's not known if the new McLaren is a personal purchase or for review purposes for his new show or Jeremy's motoring column.
Delivery of the star's new toy comes after Amazon founder Jeff Bezos revealed it had been 'very, very, very expensive' to acquire Clarkson and his former Top Gear co-stars James May and Richard Hammond.
The boss declined to say how much the three presenters were being paid but Amazon are said to be splashing out $386million over three years on the series, while each presenter is rumoured to be being paid more than $14million each.
The first series of the show is due to launch next year on the online retailer's streaming video service Amazon Prime.
The company CEO said he was 'very excited' by the acquisition but told James Quinn of the Sunday Telegraph that Clarkson, May and Hammond were 'worth a lot, and they know it'.
