George Michael Celebrates Getting His License Back In Style
Singer George Michael is back behind the wheel after a two-year driving ban and he's celebrating in grand style. WENN caught him taking delivery of his new baby, a $200,000 Ferrari California. Michael lost his license in 2007 after being found slumped behind the wheel of his car. He pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of marijuana. Although there is a three-year waiting list for these cars since they were announced, George Michael may have jumped the list a bit to get his new toy.
The California takes inspiration from classic Ferrari designs from the 1950s but with a modern Pininfarina spin. Under the hood there is a direct-inject, 460-hp version of the company's 4.3L V8. It is a performance machine but with a little more room and a more street-friendly style than some other Ferraris. The car goes from 0-60 miles per hour in under four seconds.
