Who has the best collection

I always been curious, who has the best collection of Ferraris, and to an extent, exotic cars? I know Ralph Lauren is pretty big into Ferraris (not sure what kind of cars he has), and remembering reading somewhere that Mexican billionaire Lorenzo H Zambrano has I guess a sick collection of Ferraris.

Look at some of todays rappers for nice car collections. Wycleaf Jean for example has an extensive collection, including his Mclearn F1! Also Busta Rhymes has a sweet collection wich includes a few hummers, jags and a lamborghini Murcielago.

I should add that the first website only shows his Ferrari collection. He has more beyond this. Look at my gallery to see his other cars.

True!! :lol:

But his collections is mainly on Ferraris, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Mercedeses and Rolls Royces. These are the one-offs. Then there are the odd BMWs. But he does not collect "classics" though. Mostly one-offs. And all the F1 championship winners since 1990?

Albert Obrist HAD the best Ferrari collection in my opinion. All the famous factory entered cars (sportscars, GTīs and single seaters) that played a significant role in building the Ferrari name and magic. All of his cars had very interesting (and race winning) histories.

I think I have the best collection. :wink:

91 Cars/Trucks - 34 of which are Ferrari's (and one sweet Audi!)
and 50+ Motorcycles

See the Cars and Trucks here...

http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4288871491

(but they are 1:18th scale)

Then you add in my 400+ 1:64 scale Ferrari's...and the 500+ various other 1:64's...then go to my small (10) 1:43rd collection... :green: :green: :green: :green: :green:

I very easily have over 1000 cars/trucks/motorcycles in my collection. My wife can attest to that. :wink:

Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?

Owner and Operator of a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. A few mods here and there... but just you wait and see what I have in store for her...

I may have seen one of his cars a few months ago. Any idea what color the F50 or Enzo is? I'll have to dig through my photos.
