The 42-year-old star set out to break a driving record recently and he did; choosing to do it in style with a Bentley that costs almost $300,000.

The record, first set in 1927, was broken by the Hollywood star with him travelling at 180.361mph over a measured mile.

Speaking on his victory he said ‘I’m absolutely elated to have broken the “Flying Mile” at Pendine Sands. It’s an honour to have taken on the challenge, and to successfully follow in the footsteps of the illustrious Sir Malcolm Campbell.’

      Where did it say that he spent that amount!?!
      It merely stated how much the car is worth.

      ….when people get emotional over how others spend their (hard earnt) money…..odd!

      Oh shut up. No one is working to give all their money to charity. You have no proof that he doesn’t make charitable donations. You should start giving all your discretionary funds to charity.

      @Sunshine nawa for u oooo, common sentence u can’t read, was it stated there that he bought the car for $300,000? they only said the cost of the car and mind u he was directed to test the ability and the luxury of the car and he used that means to create a record, u too use ur dumb head to use this platform to learn to use oppurtunity for ur achievement, don’t always castigate baselessly

      What have you done for charity yourself. You must thinks it was made for specific people only..

      Everything can’t go to charity. You how much have u spent on charity? He is entitled to spend the money he worked for how ever he chose to do so.
