Buying gifts for men can be complicated — especially if the recipient is a bloke who already has everything money can buy. Take music mogul Simon Cowell, for instance. ‘The X Factor’ judge turned 56 on October 7 and we hear girlfriend Lauren Silverman really struggled with the conundrum of what to buy him for his big day.

Simon, in a bid to make it easier for her, shared his wish list in advance — but what a list it was! At the top of his list was a gift that has not been invented yet! “I’m easy to buy for,” he joked, while sharing his request for a flying car. “I saw one and I read about it in ‘Top Gear’ recently. I thought, ‘God, if there is anything I want, that is it’. It is the coolest thing. If they can make one, that would be top of my list.”

Of course a functional flying car currently exists in theory only and is not expected to be available for sale until 2023. When it does debut, ‘Top Gear’ reports it will have fold-out wings, twin electric motors and a computer controlled 500-mile flight range — all priced between £400,000 and £500,000. Simon certainly has the greenbacks required to buy the flying car, but will he have the patience to wait until he’s 64?

Truth be told, for a car that has the potential to genuinely excite him, he is likely to endure the wait. After all, with a Tesla, a Jaguar, a Bentley Azure, a Ford Bronco SUV, a classic Porsche Speedster, a Ferrari 575M Maranello, a Rolls Royce, a Bugatti and a handful of other hot wheels  already in his garage, nothing short of a flying car is going to float Simon’s boat!
