Default Lindsay Fox's Car Collection...

For those who don't know, Lindsay Fox is a wealthy Australian businessman who started his own trucking/transport company. His Enzo or 'McEnzo' has a yellow roof because yellow and red are the colours of all his trucks.
He doesnt drive the cars, they sit in an old warehouse near the middle of the city sitting on prime real estate said to be worth millions. he has the F40, F50, F60, XJ220, some widebody porsche, plus heaps of volkswagens (beetles) and rolls royces. He also has teh largest Mercedes collection outside of Germany, including a couple of Gullwings. I have been there and seen teh cars before, was open to the public with entry fee, all monies going to charity.

Yes he does own a Race Track, bought one a few years ago, Phillip Island, which is where the MotoGP is held in melbourne every year.

His company spends over $100 Million on Mercedes-Benz Trucks every year and has a fleet of about 2500 throughout australia. Also part owns 1 airport and fully owns another, Being Essendon and Avalon respectivley

Default Re: SuperCars Colections

A street in which supercars clearly outnumber regular vehicles.

The clip takes to Sant’Agata Bolognese, an otherwise peaceful little Italian town which happens to be the home of Lamborghini. Here is not the usual factory tour, but a tour... around the factory.

Some of you might be interested in this Private Garage owned by a member of the Al-Nahyan family ( The ruling family of the UAE). A LaFerrari has also been added to this collection a few weeks back.
