Student has collection of 31 supercars – aged 21

September 7, 2010 | by | 29 Comments

A mega-wealthy car nut has amassed one of the world’s greatest collection of supercars worth £4.5million – at the age of just 21.

Student Dhiaa Al-Essa has 31 luxury motors in his garage including five Ferraris, five Porsches, three Lamborghinis, two Rolls Royces and a McLaren Mercedes.

Incredibly, the value of his collection will nearly DOUBLE next year when he takes delivery of a Koenigsegg Agera as his 22nd birthday present and a Bugatti Veyron – worth £1.6million EACH.

All his cars have a personalised number plate featuring the figures 070 – which set him back around £100,000 every time he buys a new car.

The international playboy – son of a super-rich Saudi businessman – has spent the summer flying his cars around the globe to take part in driving tours with his wealthy mates.

But Dhiaa was devastated when his brand new Ferrari 458 Italia fell victim to the model’s notorious ‘curse’ and was gutted by fire in a warehouse blaze at Heathrow Airport earlier this month.

Speaking from his mansion in New York, he said: ”I love speed, but the limit in Saudi Arabia is 75mph so I’m pretty limited.

”When the Bugatti arrives I hope to take it to Germany where you can drive as fast as you can on parts of the autobahn.

”The Mercedes McLaren SLR is my favourite. I love the way it looks and drives and it’s also been reliable for a car out in the 50 degree temperature. With a top speed of 205mph it’s also very fast.”

Dhiaa – whose father’s business empire spans everything from property to stock markets – is currently studying for a degree in engineering in Riyadh, his home city.

He is one of many rich youngsters from the Middle East who descend on Europe and America every summer to escape the scorching desert temperatures.

His summer tour this year includes jaunts to London, Montreal, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York.

The playboys have infuriated residents in Knightsbridge by turning the posh area into a multi-million pound race track.

But Dhiaa was not one of the guilty culprits because his new Ferrari 458 – which he’d only had for two weeks – was destroyed in an enormous blaze at Heathrow Airport.

The car cost him £300,000 and was decked out with a £50,000 Dolce and Gabbana interior.

”I was devastated by it,” he said. ”I flew back to Riyadh for a week before returning to London where I drove a Mercedes and used the underground – I actually love travelling on public transport.”

Dhiaa was planning to drive the 458 from London to Paris and then on to Cannes, Monaco – where his family’s 180ft yacht is docked – Milan and Geneva before heading back to London via the French capital.

”I won’t be getting another Ferrari 458 Italia,” he said. ”I think it was an unlucky car as I had to take it back to the dealer because of heating problems.”

Dhiaa is considering legal action against Emirates and warehouse owner Servisair over the episode after he was offered just £30,000 compensation for the £250,000 car.

Speaking shortly before heading off to Los Angeles, he added: ”I’m disgusted by what happened and will never, ever use Emirates again.

”If they were the only airline left I’d travel by horse. They ruined by summer.”

But Dhiaa’s torment will be short-lived as he is replacing the wrecked 458 with the new Ferrari 599 Roadster, production number 70 of 70.

And next year he will take delivery of the new Koenigsegg Agera, a Swedish hypercar looking to topple the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 267mph world record top speed.

The car will feature a diamond-laced leather interior with Dhiaa’s signature stitched into the seats and a special key made out of GOLD.

Dhiaa’s father is buying the £1.6 million Agera as a joint present for turning 22 and completing his engineering degree.

And as if that weren’t enough, Dhiaa also has a £1.6 million Bugatti on order.

Stuart Milne, deputy web editor of motoring website Auto Trader, said: ”Just owning one of these cars would make any car enthusiast very happy indeed, so what it must be like for a imagine having 30 of them?

”The running costs must be enormous, but if you’ve got the world’s fastest car –  a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – on order, that’s not going to be a problem.”

    I’d be more impressed if he bought and sold them for profit. Then he would sound like a smart guy. If his daddy just buys him cars, then he’s just a spoiled brat. Article should be about the father, and how he bought his son all these cars. He’s the one that did all the work and made all the money. What did this idiot do?

    • exxxpat says:

      - now, he doesn’t really have to do anything, does he? Good for him. Personally I’d rather NOT be Saudi and work for a living – each to his own, I guess. Personalized tags like these seem just straight up ridiculous.

      what does his cock have to do with anything. So how do you compensate for having a big cock, let me guess, by having loads of male friends. Gay MOFO

    with automobiles the last true art statement of the former, twentieth century, this student has a good point about value acquisition, although temporal. However, maintaining these technologically highly evolved machines in the desert is not a wise choice, as he experienced with the Ferrari…

    Dhiaa, you are welcome to the services of my garage here in Long Beach, at any time ;^)
