Hassanal Bolkiah, whose net worth has been estimated to be upwards of $20 billion, has one of the most extensive car collections in the world. The royal family is estimated to have some 5,000 cars, and, since many of them are directly ordered from manufacturers or custom-made, it may almost be impossible to estimate the value of his collection of Ferraris, Rolls, Bentleys, and more. His brother Prince Jeffri, who also has a massive car collection, spent $475 million at Rolls Royce alone.
