Lewis in pole with his monogrammed seats
As privAte jets go, this Bombardier Challenger 605 is pretty modest. Well, as modest as a £16million vehicle can be. it seats ten, and doesn’t even have a shower.
But Lewis Hamilton, who took delivery of it in 2013, has ensured it is customised so it adequately reflects his image. the outside is painted a blood red and Hamilton frequently likes to perch on the wing to promote his role as an ambassador for Bombardier. it is unclear how much of a discount he received for regularly plugging the brand on social media. the interior includes black leather seats with his initials sewn into the leather. there is also a bar, lots of plasma screens and a pullout bed for those long transatlantic flights.
the final touch? Hamilton changed the registration to G-LCDH, standing for Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton. that certainly trumps a personalised number plate on your Mercedes.
