Sultan of Brunei’s garage is as big as a King’s palace
The Sultan of Brunei is quite well-known for his crazy fascination of automobiles. And when you have an unending pot of money that is added by 90 euros per second you wouldn’t even think once. He owns around 5000 cars: the most expensive, the most beautiful, the most rare, the fastest, the unique…yes, he has them all. He keeps them in five big warehouse-garages. One visitor of the sultan’s garage’s once said: “It can take an hour and a half just to get a certain car out if it’s been parked right at the back.”
The owner of the world’s largest and most luxurious palace is a huge car fanatic. The cars are driven by the Sultan, members of his family, and also by the ministers of state, government officials and other members of the royal household. The Sultan whose literally grown up eating in spoons made of gold and silver made a special request to the Rolls Royce Company, who readily combined their car designs with that of Porsche for the King. Because of his sincere involvement in cars the Sultan has entire wings dedicated to certain types/brands of cars. His auto empire includes 350 Rolls-Royce cars, eight McLaren’s F1, six Dauer 962 LMs, the only right-handed Mercedes CLK-GTR in the world, a Lamborghini Diablo Jota, two Jaguar XJR-15, numerous Ferraris, Mercedes, Jaguars, Porsches, Bentleys. Now, this is what I call sheer passion.
