    Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Hello everyone,

    I first heard about the Brunei Royal Family and their amazing car collection about 5 years ago. Since then I've allways been on the lookout for pictures and information of the family's fantastic car collection.
    During years of reading about the Royal Family I've even became quite a fan of them.

    I thought it would be cool to make an online gallery about their cars and share them with you guys, so that we finally get a good look at how amazing/diverse/big/special the collection really is.

    If you've got any more information about these cars please post them in this thread or contact me via pm for a private chat.

    'The Sultan of Brunei is the head of state and head of government in Brunei and was the richest man in the world for a long time . There are quite a few carnuts in the Royal Family of Brunei. Their collection is unique, having custom Ferrari's, Aston Martin's, Rolls Royce's, AMG Mercedes-Benz's, etc. that have been modified by the factories for the secret car collection.
    This is the biggest picture collection of their cars on the net. Enjoy. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>'

    That aston-martin AM3-P1 is hot.
     
  3. Brunei car pictures Gallery

    -P1,2,3,4 stands for picture 1,2,3,4

    But yeah, both models look very good.


    Edit: I added BMW, Cizeta-Moroder and Dauer.

    That is truely amazing stuff.

    Yay, my gallery made it to the front page <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    I've updated it a little bit with 47 pictures of the FX and the 550 Spider, enjoy.

    Edit: If you compare #4, wich Richard Owen photographed, with the other two I've got in my gallery, you can see that the steeringwheel is different. First of all it's bigger (airbag?), second of all I don't see a green flipper (maybe the flipper is painted in the color of the dash (red and black) or maybe it's smaller).

    BTW Richard, that are some magnificent pictures! Did you made them yourself? How was it to visit the Marconi museum?

    Good job, we changed the text front page to better reflect your awesomeness: 'For a look at some of the other Sultan Specials, you can view an dedicated gallery by basman007 here.'

    In the middle of August we made the trek to LA to specifically photograph the FX. It took several phone calls and e-mails, but I think all the time and effort was worth the result.

    Dick Marconi is a great guy, the kind that doesn't mind taking the extra step to share any of his cars.

    Sweet, thanks!

    Allright, I've added some more Ferrari's, including the supercars. I even think I've found 2 pictures with parts of a 288 GTO on it!!! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
    The wheels, mirrors and the front-bumper make me think it is a 288, but the curve in the hood makes me think it's a 308.

    Please post if you think you know what it is: http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewPic=y&source=gal&uID=129612&gID=976&pgID=6&pID=450960&first=true


    Edit: I'm updating Dauer in a couple of minutes. Turns out that the carbon/yellow stripes 962 LM belonged to the Sultan...

    Maybe a planes or 'Boenig' page.

    This is a 240 million Boeing 767. I've seen pictures of 4 or 5 of these, one for each member of the royal family.

    Tha yellow car is the 456 Estate, it featured an uprated engine and was one of the faster Ferraris of the fleet believe it or not.

    Yeah, I know. I love that car. But what is the black Ferrari next to it? Is that indeed a 288 GTO?


    And I added McLaren. I skipped a couple of cars, cuz I need to Pshop some of them first and I don't feel like doing that right now.

    I've added over 100 pictures this evening. The number of pictures of the Sultan's cars in my gallery has now passed the 300-marker. And I'm not even done yet <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>

    I've completed the Ferrari page (by adding about 50 pics) and added Jaguar, Lamborghini and Mercedes-Benz. That last page contains (I think) the first pics that I've seen of the garage underneath the palace.

    I Could use a little help with the Mercedes-page, because I'm not really a hero in the names of all the different S-classes. So if you guys could check the names of the cars, please.


    Enjoy...

    + the S-class's in that garage and those with all the hoods open supposedly have never been driven more than factory-miles.

    Edit: I'd also like to see more pictures of that grey SL500 AMG, the crown princes personal car (see license plate).

     
  19. Brunei car pictures Gallery

    I need some comments on this:
    I do know that these models in these colors were in Brunei, but I'm not entirely sure if they are the actual cars that were in Brunei.

    I'm not sure about the Sbarro's though..
