He's only been driving since December, but its looks like Harry Styles has developed quite a taste for expensive cars.
The One Direction singer, 18, has rented a $195,000 Ferrari California convertible to drive around Los Angeles in while the group are recording their second album.
The lavish car, which includes a 4.3 engine and power steering, can be rented from $1,669 to $2,200 a day.

Expensive insurance: Having only been driving a few months, it will cost a lot to insure the teenager
He had to pay 15,000 to insure the
Range Rover because his age, lack of experience and profession aren't
so attractive to insurers.
But given the group are so successful, Harry won't need to worry about finding the funds to pay for his expensive car insurance.
Meanwhile, in an interview on Sunday with the Daily Record, his father Des Styles has spoken about his son's way with the ladies.
Des said: 'With Caroline Flack, you can imagine, dads and sons, it’s like, “Fair play, son.” But it was a bit ridiculous, 32 or whatever she was and 17. It’s a bit extreme really.

'He’s just got this fantastic personable demeanour to him. Clearly he’s a bit special.
'It’s not just his looks but he’s very charming, it’s like a gift really. I always knew he’d succeed at whatever he did because he’d always charm people, from performing in the car or on holiday he’d always be able to hold a crowd or hold a room even when he was a kid.
'As far as I know, Harry doesn’t have a girlfriend at the moment. They’re very rarely in the same place for him to be able to do that.'
How cute: Harry tweeted a photo of himself as a child with old school friend Alice Fagan on his Twitter yesterday
