Why is? Jonathan Ross drives a crazy snail-inspired classic Nissan S Cargo through north London
Jonathan Ross is known for his eclectic sense of style when it comes to his clothes – and it seems he’s just as minded when it comes to his car collection.
The 61-year-old presenter was pictured driving a crazy two-tone green classic Nissan S Cargo in north London on Thursday morning.
Pre-owned models can range from £2,000 to £12,000, but while loved by some, others have branded them the ‘ugliest car ever’.

He makes his own rules: Jonathan has quite an eclectic taste, to say the least
Jonathan wore dark sunglasses and a navy blue top as he got behind the wheel of his car.
The name S Cargo stands for “small cargo” and also sounds like “Escargot”, the French word for snail, which perfectly describes the shape of the car.
The small, retro-style van was produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan from 1989 to 1991. A total of only 8000 pieces were produced.

Known for his love of expensive cars, the film critic also owns a classic Jaguar E-Type that broke down in March, prompting him to enlist help from fans.
Ross has also owned a classic £50,000 Morgan roadster updated with eye-catching stainless steel wire wheels – available for an additional £2,300.
He also had the interior pimped out in red leather, which cost him a further £2400.
But let’s hope he still has room in his garage, as Jonathan has also owned a Chrysler Crossfire and a bright orange Mazda MX-5 – marketed for a staggering £20,000.
And he was also photographed driving a 2014 Lamborghini Aventador in the Gumball 3000 Rally, which arrived in Edinburgh in 2015.
The car race is inspired by the 1976 film and lets car fans drive 3,000 miles on public roads across different countries.
It is not clear which of these cars Jonathan still owns.
