New toy: James Corden shows off his new Jaguar XKR convertible as he runs errands near his North-West London home today
Forget about the big house and platinum credit card - the sign of success for most men is probably owning a top-of-the-range car.
And as his career goes from strength to strength, James Corden proved to be no exception today as he took his new car out for a spin.
The comedian was snapped near his home in North-West London this morning running a few errands around the Primrose Hill area.
And thanks to the glorious weather conditions in the capital today, he was not only able to take his Jaguar for a spin but he also got to put the roof down too.
Chubby Corden, 32, was snapped out and about in the sun today as he parked up on Regent's Park Road to do a bit of shopping.
As he popped into a few shops, he stopped at Shepherd Foods for a sandwich before he went home.
A short while later, he was seen lugging some boxes out of his home, which is just a few hundred yards away from the shops, although it was unsure what he was doing with them and where he was going.
Suits you, sir: James looks happy behind the wheel of his car as he gets ready to drive off home - which is only up the road
The Jaguar XKR Convertible doesn't come cheap and boasts a price tag of £79,980.
But for that price you get a lot of bells and whistles thrown in, including keyless starting, seven-inch video display, Bluetooth, satellite radio and ten-way adjustable front seats.
What is clear, though, is that the price tag of his new four-wheel toy proves that James's popularity and career have gone through the roof.

Not that it should dent James's bank balance too much, with three successful series of Gavin And Stacey under his belt, as well as several film roles and numerous appearances in a number of TV programmes, including a forthcoming appearance in Doctor Who.
Last February, he spoke of his love of expensive cars in an interview with the Mail but ironically, considering his new toy, said he wasn't sure about buying a convertible as he didn't want to look like a 'flash berk'.
He said: ‘You can’t be too careful with convertibles, because the t*** factor looms very large. I’ve wanted a convertible for ages but I’ve been wondering, “Am I going to look like a flash berk in one?"'
