Adelaide: Australian model Lara Bingle’s sports car, which was a gift to her from her ex-fiance cricketer Michael Clarke, is said to just be sitting under covers in the garage of its new owner.

Bingle, 23, had sold the Aston Martin V8 Vantage to a car enthusiast in Tamworth after she spilt with Clarke, 29.

The sports car, which is believed to have cost 300,000 dollars, given to Bingle by Clarke as a gift during their rocky engagement.

“The owner is a huge car enthusiast and keeps it under a cover in his garage,” Adelaide Now quoted a source as saying.

“In a small city like Tamworth there is the obvious issue of attracting too much attention. I think it’s there mostly to be appreciated,” the source added.
