wow what a collection. Sad to see these beauties gathering dust. Is the car in the last photo the stingray ?. The rolls are absolutely gorgeus even when covered with dust.

Considering their age these cars seem to be in pretty good condition(not sure about their mechanical condition though).Looks like a good wash and polish job will make them look brand new.

Man, those are some serious, rare exotics. Why are they left unattended?

This collection of dust covered exotics n classics may just be the tip of the iceberg.
Who knows how many more cars are rotting away in forgotten garages of the rich saudis.

What do they do with these cars ultimately? The Rolls Royce cars still look like gems in spite of being dust covered. The person who owns this collection of exotics has no love for cars.

Why do people collect these if they cannot care for them. It is a nice collection, but the way they have been thrown with the cooler and the junk, I feel sorry. There are lots of enthusiast who would lovingly take care of these.

Given that there's little moisture in those parts, I'm sure the cars should be in decent mechanical condition. Buy some man!!
