Considering the furor it created, I had fully expected the LS 600hL gift that Lexus airfreighted to Paul McCartney would never see the light of day. However, Sir Paul was recently spotted being chauffeured around London in the dark maple red hybrid. Also of note:
Such is vegetarian Sir Paul’s passion for issues surrounding animal rights and the environment that he took out the leather interior and had it replaced with cloth.
The singer demanded that no animal products were used in his new car and it has been fitted with a hand-stitched green woven fabric.
Lexus said of the decision to send the vehicle by plane: ‘To ensure the car’s quality and security, as well as to meet marketing deadlines, it was airshipped on a regularly-scheduled commercial flight to the UK.’
Ok, enough of about that. I feel like a gossip columnist.
