Born Simon Phillip Cowell has an estimated net worth of $550 million. "Known to millions as the surly British judge on American Idol, Simon Cowell is known for his harsh criticism of would-be pop stars. He started his career at EMI Music Publishing, where he worked his way up from the assistant to becoming an A&R representative to a record producer. After two unsuccessful attempts to launch his own label, Cowell began working as an A&R consultant for BMG. Powell went on to sign a number of successful bands for the label and pioneered some of the biggest selling hits in the industry, including bands 'Five' and 'Westlife'. He also started working on other music-based projects like the extremely popular British show Pop Idol, which reincarnated in America as American Idol. He earned a staggering $52 million in a single year in 2006, thanks to the global success of the show. Simon had now become a celebrity in his own right, serving as a judge on both the UK and US version of Pop Idol. His sardonic and straight-talking style has earned him various nicknames, including Mr Nasty and Judge Dread. The entertainment mogul is also credited with a number of other competitive reality TV series like America's Got Talent, American Inventor and The X Factor. Cowell is currently appearing on the US version of the 'X-Factor' amid controversy that he allegedly ‘sacked’ Cheryl Cole as a judge on the show due to her accent. Apart from having a great ear for hits and knack of spotting future stars, Simon Cowell also has great affinity for his cars which include the likes of Ferrari, Bentley, Mini Cooper and a Rolls Royce Phantom.

Cowell has even installed a telescope in the kitchen of his spanking new Los Angeles mansion. Once Simon says that 'It's great fun. I just like to keep an eye on what is happening'

Eating Out

Eating out

Simon has proudly admitted to his love of eating out and considers the huge kitchens in his luxurious mansions as 'irrelevant'.  As a result he takes to the world’s finest restaurants while globetrotting for business. His favorite haunts in London are the Ivy, Mr Chow, the Wolseley, Scalini's in Knightsbridge and Cipriani.  When working out from his secondary residence at LA, he prefers to eat at his favorite local restaurant, Ago, which is co-owned by Robert Din Niro and Harvey Weinstein.

Carver

Carver

The eminent TV personality owns a three-wheeled Carver, which is rather a strange addition to the multi-millionaire’s luxurious car collection comprising Bugatti Veyron and Rolls Royces. Normally spotted driving luxurious cars featuring lavish interiors and shiny exteriors, Simon Cowell’s choice for going for a Silver color Carver certainly seems strange. Petite in size and odd in shape, the bizarre-looking Carver looks extremely futuristic in terms of style. The tilting three-wheeled vehicle makes use of an exclusive “Automatic balancing technology” to balance the passenger section under all sorts of conditions. 

Brabus Smart convertible

The big-time host of X Factor definitely gets a kick out of driving unusual cars one must say! An interesting member of his fleet of cars is the smallest car in the world - the Brabus Smart. Colored black on black and loaded with alcantara interiors that were personally designed by the judge, the car is the first among a limited edition of 120 vehicles. With acceleration which takes it from 0-100 km/h under 9 seconds and a top speed which would shame a Honda Civic, the Smart RS-L arrives with a high quality leather interior, tinted windows, ten LED puddle-lights, a Project-Kahn leather keychain and a carbon-fiber umbrella.

1932 Ford V8 Mode B

Simon Cowell’s 1932 Ford V8 Mode B

With a fleet of cars at his disposal, Simon Cowell, judge at X Factor, seemed to make merry in his unique V8 vehicle - the 1932 Ford Hot Rod! Also called the Mode B, the car which would often be defined as a jalopy is surprisingly bright and sprightly in black and red. An extreme rarity except in auto shows, the Hot Rod was once a common sight on the roads and one of the most popular vehicles of its era. It is also one of the most sought-after collectibles of the automobile world today.

The car was specially built and customized by Galpin Auto Sports (G.A.S) based in Beverly Hills. And it has a special place in Cowell's heart as he chose to ride in it ahead of the Rolls Royce Phantom, Bugatti Veyron and Bentley Azure convertible which he also owns. In fact, he spoke of this love when he tweeted about it exclaiming that it 'glowed in the dark'! The vintage classic with its huge front grille, insect-eye like headlamps and unique body shape is sure to gather rolling eyeballs as it passes through the streets of Beverly Hills where Simon takes it out for a drive.
