Dhiaa Al-Essa and his two latest Ferraris including a new 599 GTOEnlarge Photo
File this under the “life’s just not fair” category. A 21-year-old student in Saudi Arabia has just taken delivery of two new supercars, one of which is the fastest ever road-going Ferrari, the new 599 GTO. Dhiaa Al-Essa’s collection of supercars now stands at 33, with the new 599 GTO
and an F430 Scuderia Spider 16M
--the last one ever made--being his latest additions.
His collection also includes no less than three Lamborghinis, two Rolls-Royces, and several Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz models. And, with Al-Essa’s 22nd birthday fast approaching, the collection is set to grow even greater with the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
, as well as the Koenigsegg Agera
, Ferrari SA Aperta
and a Ferrari 458 Italia already on their way to his Saudi home.
Al-Essa’s taste for expensive toys first came to light earlier this year when a yellow 458 Italia he ordered burnt to the ground in a warehouse fire while it was in transit.
If you asked him which car was his favorite, previously he would have answered the Mercedes-McLaren SLR but now he’ll tell you without hesitation that it is the Ferrari 599 GTO.
“I’ve been so excited about the Ferrari 599 GTO--I have had to wait six months for it to arrive,” he is quoted as saying. “It’s a limited edition car with more technology than pretty much any other car in the world--and it’s the fastest ever Ferrari.”
