Thanks
Some family of mine has a villa at the place where this photo was taken. A Huayra and an Agera was recently added to a fleet of a Zonda, a California, a 997 GT3, a Ford GT, an F50, a Murci, etc. My only guess is that the fleet belongs to him.

Way to go wackadoodle!

The magic is the MONEY ($20 million) that Stephen Hung has spent to buy 30 custom-made Rolls-Royce Phantoms and making him the world's biggest automobile spender!!

Even the hotel is weirdest piece of architecture I have seen with that color and solitaire on top! so he will have his billionaire guests sit in these ridiculously made cars and stay in even weird looking hotel and then make them pay a bomb for it!

Maybe its a way of showing his power and boosting his ego that he can get the classiest things ridiculously made and then make billionaires and celebs pay to use it! maybe some inside joke that only he must be laughing at alone at night!

thank god he didn't get them all painted in pink!

Let's remember these cars are for his hotel. And Macau is like Vegas - people come there to do weird things they would never dare do back home. An over the top style goes with that, and perhaps even causes people to loosen up and gamble more. Mr. Hung is a smart business man - and I am willing to be the has researched his target segment and knows what he is doing (including wrt the closeness he wears and the colour of his hair).

It is quite a concept must say and that is why..

.. We see all these types. Bespoke is the game.

No matter what but people are talking about it. Talk about viral marketing.

Kingfisher Airlines failed while Virgin Atlantic (from where Mr. Mallya picked up his idea) is doing good.

I think the businessman knows what he is getting into and the concept could well be a success in Macau due to specific demand from elite consumers / visitors. This is not an overnight thing instead a well thought through investment.

May be RR CEO might land up in Macau to stay in the same hotel and gets picked up in these costom made cars?

Cheers !

And somehow even if the name was stuch-in-my-head like crazy, I wasn't able to recall that face (the way it is now). Mr. Hung used to be co-head of Investment Banking for Asia at Merrill Lynch. I thought you all would find that interesting.

The servicing bill for all 30 would be enough to buy a 3 series!
