If you were rich enough to drive any car you wanted, absolutely any car, and money is no object, what would you go for? A Lambo, Bugatti, Merc, Aston, how about something outrageous like a Formula 1 car.
But what if you were truly rich, not just “getting by” like that Bill Gates guy, but truly rich. The Sultan of Brunei is the richest man on earth; he is not counted on rich lists because he does not earn his money it comes from his tiny country’s oil reserves which are basically his. Estimates of his wealth pop up from time to time but the truth is no one has any idea how much cash he has.
So which car do you think the richest man in the world drives, well if you said Lambo, you would have been correct, and if you said Aston that would have been right as well, if you guessed F1 Race-car you would have been nearly right, he owns every F1 championship winning car for the last thirty years.
These cars fit very nicely into his garage which is a bit bigger than your garage at home; it has to be to be able to accommodate the estimated 5000 personal vehicles owned by the Sultan. If he picked one car to drive down to the supermarket for a pint of milk each day, it would take him thirteen and a half years to use each one.
He seems to quite like the Rolls Royce range he has over 500 hundred of those, if you tried unsuccessfully to buy a Rolls during the 1990’s that would be because he accounted for over half of their entire sales for that decade.
His collection which may well be far more than 5000 vehicles is estimated to have cost over $4 billion, filling them all up may be a little expensive at $4 a gallon, that is estimated at a minimum of half a million dollars.
Those that voted for the Lambo will be happy to know that he has 20 of those, but he seems to prefer the sleeker appearance of the Ferrari’s as he opted for 367 of those, Jag’s are nice little run-arounds, all 177 of them, as are the 362 Bentleys.
He also likes to not just buy boring, run of the mill BMW’s (185) he also likes something a bit more exotic such as Bentley Dominator 4X4 and the Bentley Java, Ferrari FX (6) the worlds only right hand drive Merc CLX-GTR and the Cizeta Moroder V16T (3)
I personally would not want to be burdened with the stress of having to select a car each day so I will stick with my two door Kia.
