The Sultan of Brunei’s $5 Billion 5000-strong car collection
Brunei is a small country in Southeast Asia, bordering Malaysia. Income from oil, combined with a small population and tight immigration laws allows Brunei’s people to live quite comfortably ($60k GDP per capita) and its Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah to be the biggest car collector in the world, with over 5000 vehicles worth a combined total of $5 billion
First things first, every head of state, especially a monarch, needs a limo. The Sultan’s customized Rolls Royce Silver Spur does a great job of reflecting his excessively luxurious lifestyle. The vehicle was custom-made for his wedding day and covered in 24k gold. The limo is valued at roughly $14 million. To put this into perspective, the current POTUS limo with all its high-tech safety equipment is worth roughly $3 million.
