Danielle Lloyd makes money out of her idiocy
Her fickleness and misunderstanding of how to buy a car pays dividends
The good people at The Daily Star have a stringent policy of putting a half naked picture of Danielle Lloyd on their cover at least four times a week. Her residency on the front page continues today, accompanied by a story of her exploits in the world of automotive sales.
According to the ropey paper, Mrs Jermain Defoe recently bought a £67k Audi R8 (which to her credit, shows very good taste) from a dealer in Holland. After taking it for a test drive in Blighty, however, she decided she didn’t like the car, and sent it back to the dealer. Said dealer then sold the car on for an extra £30k, which was promptly passed on to Miss Lloyd.
This bizarre transaction raises a number of questions:
1. The car has a list price in the UK of £77k, so a reduction of £10k from the continent isn’t out of the ordinary. But how did its value increase by £30k after becoming second hand? Surely anything Danielle Lloyd touches should instantly decrease in value.
2. Why would the dealer give the £30k profit back to Danielle Lloyd, after she sold him back a car she didn’t want? I’m no Harvard Business School graduate, but if I were a car dealer in pursuit of a profit, I’d probably keep the money I earned from organizing the sale.
3. How has Dani managed to completely misinterpret the concept of a ‘test drive’? After actually purchasing the car, surely it just becomes a ‘drive’?
The investigation continues…
