Suzuki snares some celeb status… March 8, 2009

This is tenuous. But intriguing. Clive Allen takes delivery of new Suzuki. Shock.

Or, so what. It’s an Altitude special edition, we’re told. One of 500. With lots of free kit as standard, yet a highly economical engine to ensure the former England international won’t be spending too much on fuel. The ITV pundit has also paid Hertfordshire Glyn Hopkin £10,250 for the car. Sorry, ‘just’ £10,250.

Interesting. Potentially. For, what’s this? Football man in sensible eco car surprise? Eschewing the Bentley Conti for a credit-crunched, in-touch-with-the-real-man supermini? Err, no. See, the picture is the giveaway.

57173suzThere is Allen.

There is beaming dealer.

There betwixt them is Allen Jr.

Clearly the car is for son Edward, not our Clive, which the press release makes but minimal mention of.

Because, ‘son of ex-England International buys new car’ isn’t really all that interesting, is it.

Still, it’s got my interest. What that’s more indicative of, I do not know.
