Simon Cowell wanted Flying Car on Birthday
TV mogul Simon Cowell has revealed that he wanted a flying car for his 56th birthday.
Cowell turned 56 on Wednesday and joked how he is an “easy” person to buy for despite having the gift that has not yet been invented at the top of his wish list.
Asked ahead of his birthday what he’d like from girlfriend Lauren Silverman, Cowell replied “I would like a flying car“.
“I saw one and I read about it in Top Gear recently. I thought, ‘God, if there is anything I want, that is it’. It is the coolest thing. If they can make one, that would be top of my list. I want the flying car. I’m easy to buy for,” Cowell was quoted as saying by The Sun newspaper.
However, “The X Factor” judge will have to wait if he wants to purchase the motor as a company called Terrafugia are in the process of making one but it won’t be available until 2023.
According to June’s edition of Top Gear magazine, a 200 mph car with fold-out wings, twin electric motors and a computer controlled 500-mile flight range, is being made and will reportedly cost between 400,000-500,000 pounds.
