Music mogul Simon Cowell has offered to buy a rare Jaguar car for $1.1 million (£650,000) after spotting the vehicle on U.K. motoring show Top Gear. The X Factor boss was enthralled by the Eagle Speedster after watching TV personality Jeremy Clarkson drive the restored 1965 motor in a recent episode, and now he wants the vehicle for himself. The luxury car collector posted a photo of himself behind the wheel of the sleek black vehicle on Twitter.com, along with the caption, "I think this may be the most beautiful car in the world." The Jaguar is hand made and just one of three built. Eagle's technical director, Paul Brace, tells the U.K.'s Daily Mail that Cowell personally reached out to the bosses of the England-based restoration company about the car and says, "He was over the moon when he saw it and we're looking forward to delivering it to him in the U.S., where he can enjoy it in the sunshine."
