…The 64-year-old rock singer looked like he was enjoying a smooth ride as he was driven around in the flash Hennessey GT Venom in Malibu yesterday.
And that should have been the least he could expect, as the flash car costs an eye-watering $1million for the base 1,200hp version, though the weedier 750hp version costs a few hundred thousand less.
Given it is a custom made car built at the firm’s factory near Formula One circuit Silverstone in England, it has suitably impressive specifications, including an awesome 6.3 litre V8 engine.
Purchasers are given a special day long course in how to handle the powerful Batmobile-style motor, which may explain why the Mama Kin star was not behind the wheel.
Instead he was content with allowing his male companion to drive while he enjoyed all the admiring glances.
Quite what Steven was up to in the celebrity enclave, apart from enjoying a cruising session, is sadly a mystery.
But he certainly seemed to be enjoying his ride in the powerful car, which can go from 0 to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds.
And with a sleek design modelled on the Lotus Elise, this is one toy that should not be kept in the attic for too long.
