Sultan of Brunei
No contest: the world's most obsessive car fetishist is the sultan of Brunei. His fabulous oil wealth funded a huge car collection - more than 7,000 cars at its peak. These included no less than nine McLaren F1s and over 200 Ferraris (including 10 F40s), as well as hundreds of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. The sultan almost certainly kept companies like Bentley afloat in the 1990s by ordering unique creations, such as the Bentley Dominator 4x4, Ferrari Venice convertible and one-off Aston Martins and Rolls-Royces. For many years the sultan's collection was kept top secret, with teams of mechanics flown in by manufacturers to keep the cars in tune. But when financial wobbles hit, details of his mega-cache leaked out - and the jaws of enthusiasts everywhere dropped to the floor.
