Yes Mr Bouris
Just as dogs sometimes resemble their owners and you can tell a lot about a man from his shoes, wheels choice also gives an indication of your personality. So what do some of Australia's biggest celebrity rides say about their drivers? Read on.
Jackie O – Range Rover Sport, $150K.
If Victoria Beckham has one, then we want one too. No, we're not talking about her husband. Keeping in vogue, Jackie's Range Rover Sport is unsurprisingly the car of choice for the yummy mummy social set who require space, comfort and most importantly, a vehicle that can’t be issued a ticket from the fashion police. This car says ‘I care what I wear’.

With the entry of Ford's new Focus ST on the market, the "hot hatch" competition is definitely heating up. Matching up against speedsters like the Hyundai Veloster, the Renault Sport Megane RS265, the Opel Astra OPC and the Subaru WRX, the Focus ST more than holds its own.
Style & drive
The Ford Focus ST is a pocket rocket if I ever saw one. The five-door hot hatch is compact, has a weapon of mass acceleration under the bonnet - a 2.0L four-cylinder turbo petrol EcoBoost engine, a stylishly designed interior and loads of great accessories. The ST also comes with sexy Recaro bucket seats that are pretty awesome (unless you're test driving it when you're nine months pregnant and need a forklift to get you in and out of the car!).
The ST really is a lot of fun to drive. The drive is tight and sporty, and the car handles corners like its on rails. Let it rip on the freeway and it sometimes feels like the car's heart is too big for its body, getting a little squirrely at full power. Fuel economy isn't too bad for a sports car, coming in at a claimed 7.4L/100km, and as an added bonus, the car can run on regular unleaded as well as the premium petrol it's optimised for.
The centre stack has loads of little buttons which makes the design seem a little outdated, and the five-inch information screen is on the small side, however the ST comes with tons of great extras including keyless entry and keyless start (my favourite inventions ever as I can never find my keys!) a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, Ford SYNC system with satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity, iPod and USB connectivity, a nine-speaker Sony sound system, dual-zone climate control and rain-sensing wipers.
