Simon Cowell Admits: I’ve Only Driven My Bugatti Twice

He has more money than he knows what to do with, and Simon Cowell can’t even find the time to enjoy much of what he’s accomplished.

Case in point- the “X Factor” mastermind plunked down $1.7 million for a Bugatti Veyron in 2010 and has only driven it twice since then.

During his interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Simon explained, “It was beckoning me to buy it. Seriously.” Cowell added that he called a pal who insisted he make the purchase. “So, the following day I walked in and bought it.”

DeGeneres asked Simon how many times he’s taken his pricey ride out on the town, and he matter-of-factly replied, “Twice.”

From there, Ellen brought out a miniature version of the Bugatti and gushed, “Your little Simon Jr. is going to want to be like daddy, right?” Cowell exclaimed, “Oh my god. I love it!”
