10. FASHION MODEL PROMOTES HER AUDI R8
Although fashion modeling is a very competitive business, those who succeed may make incomes much greater than many corporate CEOs. In 2018, the most used models made millions. At the the surface of the list last year were Kendall Jenner ($22 million), Gisele Bundchen ($17.5 million), Chrissy Teigen ($13.5 million), and Adriana Lima ($10.5 million).
Luxury and supercar companies often hire well-known fashion models to market their vehicles. Most of these models can afford to possess the cars they endorse. Gisele Bundchen (along with her husband, Tom Brady) owns a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Audi R8, Rolls-Royce Ghost, and an Aston Martin DB11, among other exotic cars. Probably the model advertising this Audi R8 is sitting in her very own car.
9. FERRARI SCUDERIA 16M AND CAITLIN HIXX
The next thing that catches the viewer’s eye in this Nino Batista photo of a Ferrari Scuderia 16M with Caitlin Hixx is the initial 5-spoke forged wheel (the first thing is obvious). Produced for the 16M’s launch, the special wheels helped reduce steadily the unsprung weight of larger front brakes and calipers useful for extra stopping power.
Ferrari unveiled the Scuderia Spider 16M (a convertible version of the 430 Scuderia) at the World Finals in Mugello to commemorate their 16th victory in the Formula 1 Constructor’s World Championship in 2008. Although Ferrari used famed driver Michael Schumacher to unveil the initial 430 Scuderia, we believe the Caitlin Hixx photo might have been in the same way effective. All 499 limited production cars produced beginning in early 2009 were pre-sold to select clients.
