Simon Cowell wants his own version of President Barack Obamas Cadillac. The bomb-proof car - also known as 'The Beast - has been used by the president during his current visit to the UK, spurring the 'X Factor boss to demand one of the eight-ton vehicles for himself. Simons spokesperson Max Clifford said: Simon Cowell phoned me this morning and said he wants the same car as Obama. Worth at least 1million, the sleek-looking Cadillac One provides maximum safety and can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 15 seconds. Its 6.5 liter engine is armour-plated and it also has bullet-proof glass and puncture-resistant tires. The vehicle would provide the perfect security for Simon, who three years ago discovered a tracking device in his Rolls Royce. A friend also revealed the music mogul - who is worth an estimated 200million - is obsessed with cars and knew he wanted a 'Beast as soon as he saw the Presidents. The source said: Simons love of cars is borderline obsessional. He took one look at Obamas 'Beast and his first thought was, 'I need one. Obviously it is not as simple as walking into a Cadillac showroom and getting one. A beast would take months, if not years, to complete. ES
