Driven: Stars and their cars: Kind hot Rod's not a tight wad.

Byline: Mike Rutherford

DO you think he's sexy? After seeing Rod Stewart on stage in London at the weekend, I think the answer to that question is obvious.

But do I think he's generous? Yes, I do. The ageing rocker, who has a reputation for being a bit of a tight wad, just splashed out pounds 450,000 for an Aston Martin DB9 which he could have ordered from an Aston showroom for a mere pounds 109,000.

So why pay over the top? Because big-hearted Rod was bidding for the car in a charity auction organised by Elton John and staged at a gathering at his mansion.
