Absolutely splendid. I've seen an F50 in Tokyo. Looks quite good in person, but I'd still pick an Enzo over it. Happened to see an F40 for the first time last month as well. Glorious.

he is not averse to modern cars but he owns very few newer cars.

Factoid:
> He has two full time mechanics for his garage!
> He once worked in Boston @ Foreign Motors so he knows his stuff
> His fav car is a 1934 (i think) Rolls Royce Phantom 2 that has 1000 HP Merlin v-12 engine (I was lucky to get a glimps of this mean machine when i had gone to see one of his shows in burbank CA, he drives a different car every day)

O another factoid... A 1934 RR Phantom was also owned by some maharaja of rajkot but now its part of a RR collection in germany - the car has an interesting history it was called the star of india.

sultan is not a collector, he is a greedy guy thats all..and keeping all the cars with him when he never is going to drive it is just plain stupid cuz selling them is below him...

leno, tim allen, jerry are true car aficionados not sultan..

all of the above 3 drive different cars everyday and use them as they are intended..
