Royal Brunei car collection (Sultan of Brunei)

  1. The Cicero BDB Maestro is a four-seat midsize car made by an American automaker Cicero Several distinct vehicles have borne the Maestro name over the years, but all have had in common a four-seat utilitarian design, with an enclosed or semi-enclosed cab. The first-generation Maestro was launched in 1979 to strong fanfare and sales, replacing the slow-selling Lotus Elise. Upon the Maestro debut, Cicero was producing a range of rear-wheel drive cars, as Vector offered more mid-engined drive vehicles The second-generation Maestro was the same thing as the first-generation model but with a V8 engine, and was mainly a convertable

    found that, could be wrong though.

    I don't know who wrote that but it makes no sense (Lotus Elise replacement huh?). What DOES make sense is this though: go a bit down page until you see the headline "Hoaxer" :

    I never knew there are morons who do that. Try -repeatedly- to publish nonsense on Wiki. There is no car like that and no search produces anything meaningfull. Apparently the Daily Mirror took it from Wikipedia (who have now deleted the article refering to the "car" but not the connection to Brunei) and sites like and took it from the Mirror among others. There's the internet for you. But THERE ARE sites who have copied the same article and DELETED any mention to this fantasy supercar (the only one.......In The Wuuueerld as JC would put it)

    On a more on-topic matter (!) I can't find any REAL pictures of the Porsche Carma either. All there is is computer images. Turns out it was some french university project that was never supposed to materialize into a real prototype by Porsche or anyone else. Interesting design but I don't think they made and sold a copy to Brunei. On the other hand it took years before we found out about the Ferrari F90 so...
  3. Was this stretched F550 ordered by Bruneï family before Jeffri had troubles with his sultan brother ???

  4. Never seen it before.
  5. Interesting! Where did you find that? Link?
    It was suggested that 550-based sedans and wagons were about to be ordered back in the days but somehow I don't think Pininfarina would come up with a stretched limo. It doesn't LOOK right. Plus it looks like its LHD so.. My bet is this car is not a Pininfarina car, someone else designed/built it and it either went to USA or Middle East. But I have no proof...
  6. Pretty sure that's a photoshop.
  7. there is no such thing as "Cicero BDB Maestro"
  8. No there isn't. Wikipedia have deleted the article (along with the 134 Koenigseggs info!) Tell that though to some other car sites like gtspirit!

    As for the 550 being photoshoped I don't know. I'd expect a p-shoped picture to be clearer and in colour (else why bother?). Unless...
  9. This is no photoshop, there was an article about that car in an old issue of the magazine "Cavallino"...
  10. AC cobra- Special edition
  11. It's an AC Ace. What a great find! <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>

    And sorry for neglecting this thread <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    btw: Did you receive my mail some time ago?
  12. Really? I'd love to see that then.
    The picture looks so familiar, except that it's stretched of course.
  13. There may have been an article about the car pictured below, as they made a handful of them but the car in that b&w photo you shared appears to be Photoshopped to me as well.

  14. what you posted looks like a photo or scan of an image - that's why it isnt clear. as for your point about colour... well you don't have one.
  15. My point was clear I think. Now as for being a photoshop I wouldn't know.
  16. Good to see the Brunei thread is alive and kicking. Great job, Sebastian!!!
  17. great car. Also do you have any photos of the Ac Aceca?

  19. The easiest way to tell are some of the chrome/brushed elements and the color of the wood on the dash <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

  21. Hi Guys, New user here, and I thought I would contribute what I could to this thread. Firstly, here are some interesting pics I came across recently. These were taken on December 11, 2010
  22. I should also mention that this was a delivery for the Sultan himself. More images
  23. That AC Ace that was posted recently was part of another one of the infamous Amedeo auctions from Prince Jefri's collection. It was labeled wrongly as an AC Cobra. No one really knew what it was, but it only had about 70+ miles on the clock. There weren't any gems that really stood out in this auction, except for the 3 SLK AMG roadsters next to it. They looked just like any other but were fully kitted out by AMG, and sported a 3.6L capacity engine. They were valued at about 40+k each, not far off from that AC Ace.

    You had to pay $25 bucks to submit a silent tender, and if you were succesful, they would inform you in 3 weeks. Most of the cars there had less than 1000kms on the clock.

    When I see more exotic cars on the road here, I will be sure to try and get a snap and post here.
