David Beckham opts for tinted car windows on latest purchase
Football legend David Beckham has shown that he still has an eye for the latest trends by including window tinting on his new customised vehicle. The Los Angeles Galaxy star can be seen proudly driving his latest model – a brand new Chevrolet Camaro SS – when returning from practice sessions with his fellow team members. The Chevrolet Camaro SS is a popular model among US celebrities, partly owing to its appearance in the highly successful ‘Transformer’ series of films.
On Beckham’s customised model, window tinting is just one of a host of enviable features: the car also includes high gloss black wheels; tinted lights; and a deeply opaque shade of grey for the body work.
By selecting car window tinting, Beckham of course shows that he not only has good taste, but is also smart. In locations such as Los Angeles, where the hot sun can be as much of an annoyance as well as a blessing, tinted car windows offer several practical benefits, not least of which is the elimination of the solar glare that can sometimes seriously affect driver visibility.
Incidentally, if the star ever decided to return to the less sunny climate of the UK and drive around with tinted car windows in Manchester (his old football playing territory), he might need to adjust the tint slightly to allow more light to come through for legal purposes. However, Beckham would be pleased to discover that even with UK regulation tinted windows, his car would still look just as cool.
