X FACTOR boss Simon Cowell has asked his girlfriend Lauren Silverman to buy him a flying car for his birthday.
The multi-millionaire music mogul made the impossible present request as he turned 56 on Wednesday.
When Lauren asked what she should buy the man who has everything, Simon suggested a motor with wings like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
He said: “I would like a flying car. I saw one and I read about it in Top Gear magazine recently.
I thought: ‘God if there is anything I want, that is it. It is the most coolest thing.”
The good news for Simon is that engineers in the US are already working on a prototype for an airborne motor which will cost around £500,000 and could even be available by the end of this year.
“If they can actually make one that would be top of my list,” said Simon.
“I want the flying car. I’m easy to buy for.”
