Sultan of Brunei

Does anyone have any major information on his Ferraris and all of his exotic car collection? A website would be helpful.

Furious, could you post pictures of your garage? That sounds amazing.

All I know of him, is that he has 1 of 90 worldwide Subaru WRX Sti 22b's.

WRX's aren't exactly shy of respect, but the 22b's are another world. They sold for >$100,000. And, still with a SUBARU label....!

Well when you get a camera, you know where I will be waiting!!!

he has a bunch of custom cars, and one of a kinds, that most likely just sit.

He has like 6 of 10 Dauer Lemans 962's in the world or something silly like that.
I remember an article on Supercars.net about him, but couldn't find it again.

"His collection includes 8 McLaren F1s, 6 Dauer 962 LMs, the only right-hand-drive CLK-GTR in the world, a pair of Jaguar XJR-15, a Porsche 959, 3 Cizeta V16Ts, a Lamborghini Diablo Jota .... and 5,000 other premium cars"
"Strictly speaking, his majesty is not a die-hard car enthusiast, but his playboy younger brother Prince Jefri and his eldest son Prince Haakem are. They buy and play the supercars like toys, get bored very soon, then buy new ones and store the old ones in any of the 4 huge garages (more like a warehouse in terms of volume) for, perhaps, forever" <---like i said, wasted supercars

He owns many Ferrari's:

As mentioned several F40s (white and grey at least)
several FX90s
Several 456 Venice and Shooting Breaks
reportedly he also ones one of the (!) Mythos
Probably an F50 as well and my guess would be a 288 GTO too

Then he has at least one Jaguar XJ220 and many Aston Martins (mostly custom made and shooting Breaks), Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and the like.

Shooting Brakes are the English name for station wagons converted from sports cars. Started by Aston Martin so us British folk could spend our Sundays on the country estate shooting foxes.

From memory Aston made the DB5 SB, and a few more models which look rather nice! Farrari made the 456 SB and ive seen pics of a Daytona too.

Right its almost the weekend. Time to dust off the Shooting Brake. Tally ho! Must dash! Im late for my tea and crumpets!

There are 6 F50 in the Sultanīs garage, several F40 and a 288 GTO. He owns 12 Mercedes Benz CL 73 AMG Convertibleīs (i have seen two of them on the streets, because they where build by Karmann near my hometown), 8 300 SL Gullwing Replica, which where build by Mercedes with original tools and a modern engine. Do not forget the dozen of specialized Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce. He also buyed some racing cars from the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft).

Does anyone have any idea what kind of $$$ he is paying for these cars? I know money is not an option to him, but I'm just kind of curious.

I have no idea what kind of money he pays for them but I know Mercedes-Benz when it was DiamlerBenz told him to go to hell at one point. They refused to sell him anymore cars as they all just sit (so I heard). They told him no because there was no point in owning anymore on a island with few roads. If the story is true you have to give Benz respect for doing that, I know I do (if the story is true that is).

The guy who owns GUESS Jeans also has a 550 Maranello Spider. I passed his house in Beverly Hills (as you do), and spotted it in his drive. Along with 2 360's, 2/3 Bentleys, and a Range Rover or two. I might have some pics somewhere, and i'll post them if I ever find them.
