With a staggering net worth of $20 billion in 2015, the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, has a car collection that could make a grown fortune 500 CEO cry. Today we’ll take a virtual test drive of his 11 top rides and collectively turn green with envy.
Really what is an oil baron to do when income tax is no obstacle, you’ve already got an Airbus 340 and Bowing jet parked on your private runway, and your international real estate portfolio would make Bill Gates blush? Pick out a serious fleet of the most exotic and expensive cars on the globe, naturally.
Rumored to keep over 100 vehicles on call for each member of his family, it’s estimated that the Sultan has collected more than 7,000 incredible vehicles for a modest cost of $789 million. His collection is now valued at $5 billion.
Despite persistent rumors of the collection’s decay and sell-off, the Sultan owns (or has owned) the following cars, most of which are stored in a cluster of aircraft hangers:
More than 600 Rolls-Royces (including the final state Landaulet Phantom to be constructed)
250 Ferraris (two operational Ferrari Mythos concept cars)
134 Koenigseggs (a company who manufacture no more than 20 cars per year)
11 Aston Martins (10 of which are the magical One-77 hypercars)
382 Bentley’s (countless Java’s and one Dominator 4X4)
The only Cicero BDB Maestro ever built
1 Shelby SuperCar
In honor of this head of state’s 69th birthday on July 15, we’ll take a thorough tour of his massive collection.
