For most normal 22 year old's purchasing a $390,000 Lamborghini Aventador is little more than a nice dream. For Saudi Arabian student Dhiaa Al-Essa Lamborghini Aventador ownership recently became a reality.
Al-Essa was the first person in Saudi Arabia to have an Aventador delivered—skipping the 18 month waiting list cost him an extra $71,000. Small World News Service spoke with Dhiaa Al-Essa after the car was delivered and he had this to say
"It's amazing the Lamborghini has arrived. I wanted to be the first in Saudi Arabia to get the Aventador. Of course there is competition but for me personally it is not a competition, I just love cars – and if you want to be first you have to work hard and pay more."
The Aventador will be in good company with the rest of Dhiaa Al-Essa's impressive super car collection. According to GTspirit, Al-Essa's collection is valued at 12 million dollars and includes
a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Koenigsegg Agera, Rolls-Royce Coupe, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Range Rover (2x), Mercedes McLaren SLR, Lamborghini Gallardo, Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Lamborghini Murcielago P640, Ferrari F430, Ferrari 599 GTO, Ferrari 599, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari California, Ferrari F430 Novitec Rosso, Porsche 997 Turbo, Porsche 997 GT3 RS, Porsche 997 Turbo Spyder, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Porsche Panamera Turbo, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes S65 AMG, Mercedes G55 AMG, Mercedes E63 AMG, Mercedes CL65 AMG, BMW M5, BMW X6M, BMW X5M, BMW 760LI, Audi R8, Audi A8, Lexus LS460, and Maybach 62.
Not a bad collection for a 22 year old if you ask us. The fact your Grandfather is estimated by Forbes magazine to be worth more than £1.5 billion sure can't hurt in the pursuit of amassing such an impressive collection in your 20s.
