If you’re father happens to be Mr Bernie Ecclestone, the boss of Formula One, you’re life would be super luxe and super indulgent, so much so that you’re every whim is fulfilled…and doesn’t matter if the media therefore dubs you ‘spoilt brat’!
So Eccleston’s two sprightly daughters Tamara, 26, and Petra, 22, have been raising quite a few eyebrows with their ‘rich’ antics. Here’s the lowdown on the lavish lifestyle they get to enjoy!
A HOME that costs £66 million (S$135 million); a birthday party for a 12-year-old costing £300,000; a £66-million mansion in the snooty district of Sloane Square.
…and when Petra failed her third driving test as a 17 year-old, daddy dearest unfortunately had to return the pearl white Audi R8 super car – one of the first to roll off the production line, costing £78,000 – with a top speed of 300kmh. When she finally managed to pass the test, she had to make do with a BMW X3, which was quickly traded in for a luxury Range Rover Sport, costing £70,000.
Now here’s the bit on their business acumen. Tamara, who has also done hosting, decided to dabble in business when she bought a pub in Knightsbridge, The Swag And Tails, for £1.7 million. She soon got bored and handed over the reins to who better than daddy dearest! Petra who was quite fixated on fashion, launched her own label, which went kaput in two years.
Despite all their frivolous ways and money rolling, the girls do want to be “taken seriously”, and not just as ‘socialites’ but rather serious “businesswomen”!
