Mohamed Hadid took his taste for the finer things in life up a notch or two with his latest purchase on Friday afternoon.
The eccentric father of supermodels Gigi and Bella treated fiancée Shiva Safai to a spin in his new set of wheels, a Charles Morgan 3-Wheeler, during an appearance in Beverly Hills on Friday afternoon.
Boasting a noisy twin filter engine the unconventional forest green car ensured Mohamed commanded attention while driving close to his Los Angeles home.
The Jordanian-American real estate developer added an authentic flourish by sporting a pair of old-fashioned goggles before taking to the road.
Evidently pleased with his latest purchase, Mohamed later posted a short video designed to showcase the three-wheeled car – which can reach speeds of 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds – with followers on Instagram.
Captioning the short clip, he wrote: ‘It’s that Sunday drive with my lady Shiva. Even though it’s Friday.’
His fiancée later shared her own snap, a selfie of the pair enjoying a leisurely cruise in the open top vehicle alongside the caption: ‘Out with my boo.’
Retailing between £31,450 and £34,995, the Morgan 3-Wheeler comes with tasteful leather seats and a spacious, cockpit shaped interior.
With its three wheel design experts claim driving the vehicle, which has been updated with 21st century technology, requires ‘the mentality of a motorcyclist.’
Mohamed’s outing comes months after he was charged with three misdemeanor criminal counts related to a megamansion project in the upscale Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The charges against Mohamed included illegal use of land, building without a permit and failure to comply with orders from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety.
Construction on the 30,000-square-foot project nicknamed the ‘Starship Enterprise’ by irate neighbors was halted by building officials in September after a neighbor complained that construction had destabilized the slope.
Officials ordered Mohamed to demolish and remove illegal additions including an unapporoved 70-seat underground Imax theater and guest suites built below a swimming pool, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The criminal charges were brought after Mohamed’s appeal of the decision was denied.
City Councilman Paul Koretz in a statement said that Mohamed is a ‘blatant scofflaw and it’s about time he was added to the case.
