Harry Has Style – Boy band member, Harry Styles, is the envy of most men!
Mr Styles, of One Direction fame, has an ever increasing collection of cars and this month he has been spotted with a new addition – a white Ford Capri.
Assumed to be a little birthday gift for himself, the classic 1970s motor is a little different from what you tend to see ‘pop stars’ driving around in but Harry seemed quite at home behind the wheel as he was spotted pulling up to his bands rehearsals last week.
Popular in the 1970s and 80s, the Ford Capri is easily recognisable thanks to the lengthened front appearance along with its deep 3-litre V6 engine making itself known under the bonnet. The Mk II was introduced in 1974 as a more suitable everyday driving car compared to its predecessor; the Mk I. A slightly more modern dashboard was fitted, as well as, a smaller more practical steering wheel. Headlights were maintained as large square designs which went on to become one of the easiest ways to differentiate between the Mk II and Mk III
Styles is not the only pop star to vent an interest in various types of car and it lead us to think about Jay Kay, from the band Jamiroquai, who has a passionate interest in cars and owns over 60 luxury cars himself! He often combines his love of motors with his music as fans will notice links with album artwork and lyrics.
Classic cars feature heavily amongst Jay Kay’s collection including; a black 356 Speedster, a blue 911 Carrera RS, and a 911 GT3 RS in orange livery and a 1973 Porsche Carrera RS.
Harry has not been one to shy away from the more mature options in life and his newly purchased classic is no exception to his habit! And, at just 19 years old, we are sure that he won’t stop here!
