    Default What Simon Cowell did on his week off: Spend 1 MILLION on TWO cars

    What does X Factor boss Simon Cowell do when he's got a week off from the telly because of the Rugby World Cup?

    He goes and spends 1 million on two incredible cars in LA, with equally incredible price tags, of course.

    But Simon didn't just buy any old pricey motors. He splashed out 750,000 on a Bugatti Veyron - the world's most expensive and fastest street-legal car.

    With in excess of 1000 horsepower, the Veyron - built by Volkswagen - has top speed of 253.81 mph (408.47 km/h).
    Not content with speed, Cowell, on his return to London, bought 400,000 worth of comfort and style in the shape of a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.
    But the eighteen feet long and six feet wide Coupe is no slouch either. With V12 under the bonnet the Roller has a top speed of 149mph.

    Cowell's love of speed is well known, having blitzed the BBC's Top Gear track in 1:47.1 last year - the eighth fastest time overall for the 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' segment and the third fastest non-professional driver in series eight.
    The reality TV hot-shot already owns a stack of pricey motors, including this Ferrari (above), but when you're worth in excess of 100 million, who's counting?

    I also love the drophead phantom, mainly because RR were adamant they weren't going to make it...and then suddenly a drophead phantom turns up in the Top Gear studio as a 'technical exercise'. As the boys said at the time 'expect it therefore to be on sale sometime next year for around 300,000'
    "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."
