Los Angeles, Nov 23 IANS | 2 years ago

Music mogul Simon Cowell has driven his Bugatti Veyron worth USD 1.7 million twice in three years.

Cowell splashed out on the vehicle in 2010 after falling in love with it when he spotted it in a showroom in Beverly Hills, California, but he only decided to part with his money after phoning a friend to check if he was making the right decision.

Contactmusic.com repors that Cowell shared the details about the car on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and said: "It was beckoning me to buy it. Seriously. The following day I walked in and bought it."

Earlier in the episode, Ellen gave Cowell, who is expecting his first child with US socialite Lauren Silverman in February, a mini-Bugatti as a present for his unborn son, and he was delighted with the gift.

"Oh my god. I love it," he said.
