Adele ‘splashes out on ride’

Adele

Adele has reportedly splashed out on a $160,000 Porsche.

The 25-year-old British singer recently passed her driving test and didn’t spare any expense on her first set of wheels, according to UK newspaper The Mirror.

The outlet reports Adele visited the Porsche Centre West London dealership in Chiswick last week, when she ordered her luxury Porsche Cayenne SUV.

“Since passing her test, driving has become one of Adele’s favourite activities and she loves to cruise around London. She could afford to buy any mega-expensive sports car but, now she’s a mum, safety and reliability are her priorities,” a source said. “Her car is a 4×4 and extremely safe but it’s also slick and luxurious.”

Adele, who welcomed her son, Angelo, with partner Simon Konecki last October, is apparently calling the ride an early Christmas gift to herself.

She reportedly ordered the vehicle in black so that she could drive around without being noticed.

“It is now being built for her in Germany and will be shipped after Christmas with a 2014 number plate,” the insider said.

“[She] can’t wait for it to arrive and there’ll be no shortage of tunes for her to blast out of the CDR audio system. She’s even planning to take her Pass Plus exam in the new year, which helps give new drivers confidence on motorways and when driving at night.”
