Jodie Kidd on how she went from a Rover 75 to a Ferrari 550
During the episode, Kidd reveals how one of her earliest cars was a Rover 75 to the amusement of Plato, before revealing she then upgraded to a Ferrari 550.
“After the Rover 75, I got a Ferrari 550 – one of the world speed record ones, so I made up for it!” Kidd proclaimed.
“That was when I got my first big proper job and where I thought I’ve always wanted a Ferrari. I’ve loved horses my whole life, and for me that was the pinnacle of ‘I’ve done good, I’ve made it’.
“I mean, I had to sell it a couple of years later, but I had it,” laughs Kidd.
“It was like I’ve done it, I’ve made it, but I can’t afford to run it. It’s just so simplistic and it’s just so incredibly beautiful and there’s my obsession with engines and Ferrari V12s. The V12, those long beautiful noses, just the epitome of beauty.”
