During one of their visits to Land Rover’s design HQ, David Beckham was apparently rather keen to get hold of an in-car iPod connector, “otherwise Victoria will start singing”. Despite being one fifth of the Spice Girls, the most successful girl band of all time, even Victoria Beckham herself never claimed to have the pipes of, say, Aretha Franklin, so much so that it’s a running joke between her and husband. Now the former super-WAG turned award-winning fashion designer fancies herself as a bloody car designer. Has the world finally gone mad? Well, no actually. Allow me to explain.
