Beckham and wife Victoria are a huge collector of cars, and own, to name but a few, a £300,000 Rolls Royce, which they have used to pick up the children from school before, a pair of top of the range £100,000 Porsches - a black one and a white one - a more functional Cadillac Escalade and a $40,000 off-road Jeep.

The pair are reported to be moving back to the UK with their three sons amid speculation Beckham is set to sign with Tottenham Hotspur.

However, the British team are thought to be waiting on a decision from Galaxy as to whether the proposed loan can take place.

Branded: The car features Beckham's shirt number, 23, throughout
