Dhiaa Al-Essa has taken delivery of the first Ferrari 599 GTO, the fastest model to ever come out of the Italian company’s factory – at a cost of £345,000.

The engineering student said: “I’ve been so excited about the Ferrari 599 GTO – I have had to wait six months for it to arrive.

“It’s a limited edition car with more technology that pretty much any other car in the world – and it’s the fastest ever Ferrari.”

With a mammoth 660bhp, the Ferrari 599 GTO is one of the most powerful Italian cars ever built – capable of 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 208mph.

The enthusiastic youngster adds: “My favourite car used to be the Mercedes McLaren SLR but now it’s the 599.

“It’s the best ever, simply amazing – I love it.”

Dhiaa’s latest purchases takes the tally of supercars he has owned to 33 – with a further handful of new exotica set to be delivered to his Riyadh mansion over the next six months.

Sitting in his collection are three Lamborghinis and two Rolls-Royces alongside an array of Porsches, BMWs and Mercedes.

The young Saudi came to attention when his Ferrari 458 Italia was destroyed by fire at a Heathrow Airport warehouse depot. He was one of a series of unfortunate 458 owners whose cars met untimely ends.

He was one an elite group of wealthy youngsters from the Gulf who celebrated the English summer by parading around London in a score of unique supercars.

It emerged Dhiaa has a 31-strong car collection totalling £4.5 million – with two further cars totalling £3.2 million on their way for his 22nd birthday.

He previously said his 458 was an unlucky car and that he had no intention on owning another but he’s since pulled a u-turn with a replacement model arriving next month.

The Ferrari aficionado is also taking delivery of a £350,000 Ferrari SA Aperta in May, but his main excitement is being saved for the arrival of two £1.6 million hypercars – a Koenigsegg Agera and the world’s fastest car, a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

    Fajne ma dzieciństwo, ale czy mu od razu tak zazdrościć.
    Nie rozumiem tylko buraków, którzy go wyzywają, przecież to nie jego wina,
    że ma bogatego ojca i stać go na takie zachcianki.
