I dont think there would be anybody here on the forum that can beat your "own it and driven it" statement

None of the 'Best' cars I've driven were/are owned by me:

In India -
CLS 63 AMG
RR Phantom
Bentley GT
RR Sport
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (Old model)
Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne S
BMW E36 M3
BMW 760i
Audi A8 W12
Audi RS4
Audi TT
Merc S500
Plymouth Prowler

Abroad -
Lamborghini Gallardo - US
Mercedes 300SL Roadster - US (owned by my friend's father, bought out of an auction, one of the most beautiful and pristine cars I've ever sat in. Driving is out of the question, but having sat in it is in itself an honour!)
Maserati GT - US
Maserati Quattroporte - US
Ferrari F430 coupe (Sat in it for like 4-5 mins, car owned by some random dude in west Hollywood LA) - US
E46 M3 modded to the core with a turbo and tons of Carbon Fiber - US
Supercharged C6 Corvette pushing over 580whp (Dyno proven) - US
1983 Porsche 911 turbo - Australia
1999 Porsche 911 turbo - Aus (Same owner as the 83 911)
Aston Martin Vantage - Singapore
2005 Porsche Carrera - Singapore

That's about it...Well from whatever I remember. I'm sure KD has driven quite a few more exotics/supercars as well, however has chosen only to list those in his illustrious garage.

The RS4 is a 2007 model year car , that shares the garage with my 997 Carrera S in Los angeles and Chicago likewise.

Come to think of it, I also drove the C63AMG , CLS 63 AMG and SL63 AMG in India when they were here for the tour. The C63 impressed me without doubt and the rest were a disappointment to say the least. Also drove the Continental GTC.

I have enrolled in a driving experience course for next month in LA, so will get to drive the CLK Black , the DBS , F430 , GTR , Gallardo SL and many other cars over the course of a few days , and that too at the Laguna Seca!

Porsche 993 - Driven (but barely) - London
R230 SL500 (the first one in the UK in early 2002) - London

Sat/been driven in:
RR Silver Spirit - London
RR Silver Seraph - London
Bentley Turbo R - London
BMW M6 - London
R230 SL55 AMG - London
R129 SL500 (many different models of this) - Tokyo and London
Porsche 964 Cabriolet - Tokyo
Hummer H1 - Tokyo
Lamborghini Diablo - Tokyo
Lamborghini Murcielago - London
Bugatti Veyron - London

Seen two McLaren F1s in the flesh (both in London) and know someone who's been in one for 40 minutes about 14 years back, which implies one degree of separation between me and my destiny.

While I was sure there would hardly be any competition to you, what struck me was the part I have highlighted in your post. How come you didnt drive the RR?

...cuz he owns a Bentley too. And it's common knowledge that a Bentley is a driver's car, whereas a Rolls is a car to be driven in. (or maybe he just didn't have the time?)
