Katie Price ‘splurges £179k on bright pink Ferrari supercar’ before getting license back

Katie Price has reportedly splashed out almost £180k on a brand new pink Ferrari, despite her drink driving ban and highly publicized bankruptcy claims.

The former glamor model is said to have spent £179,000 on a new car, which is in her favorite color of bright pink, less than a year after her drink driving crash.

Last year, the mother of five crashed her BMW while drunk near her home in West Sussex – leading to a high-profile court case where she pleaded guilty to drink-driving while banned and uninsured.

The 43-year-old, who recently split with fiancée Carl Woods, was given a 16-week suspended sentence, with a condition of unpaid work, and a two-year driving ban but that has not seemingly stopped her from finding her new dream car, reports The Mirror.

According to The Sun, Katie has bought a bright pink Ferrari and will be rare to get behind the wheel once her ban is lifted.

A source told the publication: “Katie’s getting a pink Ferrari – it’s worth £179k and she sees it as a gift to herself after everything she’s been through. She can’t wait to get her driving license back.”

They added: “Katie’s planning to pay for the car in facilities now she’s back to earning money again after the bankruptcy.”

Last week it was revealed that Katie had met with entrepreneur Lisa Marie Brown who was designing a brand new car just for her.

Taking to social media at the time, Katie shared video of herself meeting with Lisa and expressing her excitement at getting a new car.

She wrote online: “Good day filming with @lisamariebrown123 and she is designing my new car wooo watch the space. (sic).”

She added: “So, today I’ve met my match, we all know I love pink. One pink to another pink… This lady here is going to be designing my next car.

“Do you want to know what it is? Well, you have to stay tuned. And do you want to know what color the interior? Haha. I’m with the expert.”

Lisa then addressed the camera and said: “It’s been so exciting to meet Katie and I’m really passionate about super cars, as you know.”

When Katie was sentenced for her one-car smash last December, the judge did not have any good things to say about her driving record.

District Judge Amanda Kelly said when sentencing the topless model: “When you chose to get behind the wheel that night you showed no concern for others.

“You could have killed somebody. Your actions meant the emergency services had to use up their precious time. You knowingly and deliberately flouted a court order and not for the first time.

“You seem to think you are above the law.”

Katie did jail following her crimes which resulted in avoiding backlash from fans who felt she had been let off too lightly.
