I dont know if I was reading on this forum or was it some other forum, but more than 10% of world'd Mc Larens are with one person..can you guess who??

Hey guys

Mr Bean has one Mclaren F1 but yes I have heard that that dude known as Jay Leno has 5 of them hmmm... I wonder if I'm a long lost relative of his.

Cheers

P.S His latest addition the Mercedes Mclaren SLR

Hey,
Most of you are right, Sultan of Brunei is the lucky dog.. actually its not him who is the car freak, its his brother and son who have been crazi about cars and have been THE biggest collectors in the world, with more than 4500 cars, yes thats not 450, its 4500 , crazi haah, there are many cars that he has and there will not be any exotic car that was ever made and that he doesnt have. he even has prototypes which are never suppose to be sold..he infact has all the Mc larens variations in all possible different colors..I really dont think jay lano has 5 mcls..i could be wrong, but i have seen many shows about his car collection and never heard of him having 5 mclarens, cuz thats pretty big, would have to say 2nd biggest after sultan himself..sultan also has the only clk gtr right hand drive ever made..and few others..which i have never even heard off...

One lucky guy haah!!

Anyhow even if I had that kind of money , my max collection wouldnt exceed 100 I think..I would never get 2 of the same car until there is slight difference like one is GT and the other one is not, or one is converti and the other is not..

anyhow hope u guys liked the pictures, i have many more, one very similar to this is that of diablos, if you are interested..

Hey, I just read an article which said that Jay only has one of the Mc Larens and its his fav, jay is more of a vintage car freak..he was also the first person to test drive the SLR, mercedes gave him special invitation to come to their testing grounds to break the car, and jay has some really good stuff to say about the car..one major thing he likes is that its super fast and its super luxurious unlike the mclaren..but mclaren still remains his fav...

Ralph Lauren has 2 of them...and Mr bean as you said screwed it up, but got it rebuilt and to do that he had to send it to the factory, what i fail to understand is, that he was driving it at 30 mph when he rear ended someone..that sounds strange..imagine if i were to rear end it at 130 or 230??what would happen?? this makes the car sound very fragile..anyhow..its an awesome car and I am waiting for some super rich car freak to buy one in india..

Cheers..
