He had to undergo knee replacement surgery about two years ago after suffering an injury while playing football.
And while driving for the first time since the operation in January 2020, 76-year-old Rod Stewart was seen swinging by a local Essex cafe for breakfast in a lavish super car.
Earlier this month, Rod set out in his luxury white Lamborghini, which comes with a cool £290,000 price tag, when he met his 50-year-old wife, Penny Lancaster, for a quick breakfast date.
Back Behind the Wheel: Rod Stewart, 76, was seen driving again for the first time in his white Lamborghini, as he strolled past a local Essex cafe for breakfast.
The Maggie May hit-maker had undoubtedly caused a stir, riding her expensive 770 horsepower to the cafe.
The Aventador SVJ Lamborghini was seen parked outside the breakfast spot as Rod climbed into the charming vehicle and made a stylish exit.
Over the years, Rod has racked up an impressive car collection, spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on a number of high-end vehicles.
He previously claimed that he could remember every single car he owned, including several Lamborghinis in his collection over the years, as well as a 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera, a Ferrari Enzo, which he bought in 2003, and a Rolls. Royce was bought.

Rod’s latest ride, a sleek black and white Aventador SVJ, was launched in 2019 by Lamborghini as part of an exclusive collection, with only 900 models built.
It is considered one of the most extreme models, thanks to its ‘super fast-track’ design, specifically tailored to race-track speeds.
A penchant for fast cars, it should come as no surprise that Rod made sure to snap a model for himself and he looks so happy to be sitting behind the wheel once again.
Dressed in striped tracksuit bottoms, a white T-shirt and matching sports jacket, the singer was seen returning to his vehicle after his cafe breakfast and driving away from the locally run eatery.

This is the first time Rod has been driving since his knee and ankle surgery.
In late 2019, Rod underwent ankle fusion surgery, which cost £8000, before being forced into a full knee replacement in January 2020, following an injury while playing football.
After the operation, Rod’s wife, Penny, revealed that Rocker was being discharged from the hospital to celebrate his 75th birthday.
