If he wants it, he gets it! Multi-millionaire Simon Cowell buys Jaguar Eagle Speedster after lusting for it after a Top Gear episode.
What he has bought is regarded as one of the most beautiful cars of all time into the 21st century and after drooling over it (minus Cowell) I have to agree.
He bought the car from Sussex-based restoration company Eagle, who have reworked the famous Jaguar E-Type, adding 21st Century modernity to its exquisite 1960s class.
How much did cost the Britain’s Got Talent Judge? A cool $1 million but judging from the tweet below Cowell thinks it is worth every single penny.
I think this may be the most beautiful car in the world. It’s made by Eagle. Thank you Henry,Paul and the team. pic.twitter.com/evX73q1YBj

Paul Brace, the technical director at Eagle, remarked:
‘Simon got in touch after seeing it on Top Gear.
‘It is one of three, is hand built and we’re delighted Simon has the car.
‘He was over the moon when he saw it and we’re looking forward to delivering it to him in the US where he can enjoy it in the sunshine.’
