Jeremy Clarkson, 60, has candidly detailed his “idiotic” decision to get rid of his BMW 3.0 CSL, as it is now worth a great deal more than he sold it for. The former Top Gear presenter made the admission when quizzed on the worst car purchase decision he’s ever made.

Although The Grand Tour host argued he hasn’t ever regretted purchasing a vehicle to add to his collection, he is still fed up about selling his BMW for “next to nothing”.

Jeremy divulged in a new video interview with his YouTube platform DriveTribe: “The worst car purchasing decision I ever made wasn’t a car purchasing decision at all.

“I don’t think I’ve ever bought a car I didn’t like.

“But I sold a BMW 3 litre CSL for next to nothing, I think £3,000.”

The star then sheepishly admitted: “And that was idiotic, absolutely idiotic.”

Jeremy previously shared why he prefers the older cars to newer models.

He explained in an interview with the Chronicle Herald from 2019: “New cars tend to blur into one another. 

“They’re just 14 feet of car. You buy them like wallpaper.


“Whereas an old car will have a personality for sure. We’re all in agreement on the show that old cars are terrible — noisy, unreliable, drafty and don’t have air conditioning and the steering is heavy and they ride badly and they’re not particularly fast.

“But a lot of them do look extremely lovely, and that I think is the appeal: rarity and loveliness.”

Alongside his passion for cars, the TV personality, who is reportedly worth £44million, has also discovered a love of farming.

He recently purchased a Lamborghini Tractor to add to his collection of luxurious vehicles.

Jeremy bought his Diddly Squat Farm estate, located near Chadlington in west Oxfordshire, back in 2009.

The car enthusiast lives in the town with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan and her daughter, 18-year-old Ali, from a previous relationship.

The father-of-three has been in a relationship with Lisa since 2017.

In the same year, they made their red carpet debut at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.

Jeremy and Lisa started dating three years after his divorce from his second wife Frances Cain.

Jeremy recently described his home life with Lisa and Ali as a “mad and gluten-free world” during lockdown.

He added to his column for The Sunday Times: “It’s like living in a mad and gluten-free world of primary coloured romcoms and yoga — and it’s terrible. 

“I’d rather Derek Hatton were in charge.”
