A few months ago, we reported the news about 21-year-old Dhiaa Al-Essa, a Saudi Arabian student who possessed one of the most remarkable collections we’ve ever seen. This guy, all 21 years old of him, doesn’t have any stamp or coin collections. Nope, his collectibles are a little more expensive than that. Check that; his collection is a lot more expensive than that.
Dhiaa Al-Essa loves cars so much that he already has 30 of them. We’re not talking about the garden variety Civics or Impalas here, either. We’re talking about exotics - 30 of the most powerful cars on the planet. One of his cars even made the headlines before – it was a Ferrari 458 Italia – when it burned down at London’s Heathrow Airport while on its way to the Middle East.
Undaunted by the 458 Italia that never was, Al-Essa promptly replaced it without even batting any eyelashes, spending over £ 600,000 to buy two new Ferraris : a 599 GTO and an F430 Scuderia Spider 16M with the latter being production number 499 out of 499.
Most of us would be thrilled by the mere prospect of owning two Ferraris but this guy is not most people. Despite having the two new Ferraris, he still has orders placed on a number of other supercars, including a Koenigsegg Agera , a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport , and a Ferrari SA Aperta .
Talk about living your fantasies vicariously. This guy’s wallet has no spending limit.
