Richard explained why he sold his red car during the video with DriveTribe.
He owns 6 cars according to the host that time and now he had no choice left so he sold his Ferrari 550 Marnello (1998) when his family relocated to be closer in the Top Gear studios.
The star said: “I was working at Top Gear based in London, to and from, it was just killing me. I wanted us to be together as a family, so we decided, “Right, there’s nothing for it, we’re living in a rented house. We’re going to move”.”
Richard continued: “So we gave up on the rented house, we rented another house closer to London and we moved lock, stock and barrel.”
“So I had six cars…we shifted them all over there. The last drive I did in this [the Ferrari] was in the lashing rain to the house in Penn, Buckinghamshire. We pulled up outside the house we’d rented.”
Richard Hammond recalled: “We moved in on the Saturday. Three removal vans, and on the Sunday morning I’d been talking to the girls and I looked at them in this new context…”
