    He has some very nice cars, do you happen to have any pictures of his collection (any of the Lister Storm)?

    Great to see at least one supercar is being driven/still works, allthough it is a newer car..
    (4 were supposedly sold to the Brunei Royal Family)


    Edit: I've also found this Murcie vid.



    Edit2: 3rd vid wich includes an Phantom VI with a golden Spirit of Extasy

    This one looks exactly like the one you've seen, accept for the rims and the number plates... Maybe the car was on it's way to London... I don't know:

    Edit: BTW, that Pullman S-class from my gallery is the the daily driver of one of the Sultan's wife's. Another daily driver of hers is an Maybach 62.

    ----------------------------------

    Funny to see how the Sultan is allways surrounded by groups of S-classes

    Yeah thats probably the same car, those pics are from june, I took mine later on, August IIRC. Although I'm starting to doubt that its a Brunei car - its LHD.

    also some info you might be interested in from Fchat:

    "some facts:
    ...
    1x black MC12 belongs to one of the sons of the sultan of brunei, car is located near london with GB licence plate."

    any thoughts on this?

    The Royal Family is still freakin' rich and still a Royal Family, so they drive and get driven around in new cars, well... at least they buy them. From what I've found so far tehy've bought 12 Rolls Royce Phantoms, 12 Porsche 997's, Maybach('s), Maserati MC12, Lamborghini's, Bentley's, Mercedes-Benz's (not all of these are in Brunei). But the big spending on huge numbers of cars is over (for now) and the garages at Jerudong Park are only opened when they want to sell a couple cars.

    Well, the crown prince lives/used to live in London, so it could be his. But I'm not entirely sure, I haven't seen any other pics than the ones you've posted. I thought some pics would surface of the prince taking it to party or something, but they haven't..

    Maybe someone can check the MC12's License plate?

    I took a picture of the Lister Storm some years ago, now I discovered that it is on sale:

    http://www.webmotors.com.br/Webmotors/ssCompra/pgBuscaUsadosDetalhes/pgBuscaUsadosDetalhes.aspx?cod=2736715&tipo=U&carro=JAGUAR_LISTER_VERSAO_UNICA

    Unfortunately, the car had a non original rear wing. When I took the picture it was original. The other cars I saw in the city, but I don´t have pictures.

    On the MC12 registry its stated to be Jay Kay's car (although this is written with a "?").

    well I think that MC12 is very nice looking in the all black paint. It's nice to finally see one thats not in the original white and blue paint scheme.

    HWA is a subsidiary of AMG wich took care of the "extra special jobs" the 600 Pullman replica's with modern interiors, mechanics and armoured body, aswell as the CLK GTR models and the 300SL clones
     
  21. Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Great collection of Photos!

    Hey, it's not possible that the Sultan has a Speed 12 stashed away somewhere is it, because I think he was among the 18 people who placed deposits before prodcution was "cancelled", abd it would not surprise me at all if there was a second 12 surviving in his collection.
     
  22. Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Were all the 300Sl clones made for the Sultan or for other customers has well?
     
  23. Brunei car pictures Gallery


    HWA made/makes very special cars for special (rich) clients. The Sultan was one of them, but there were also others.
    The fact that this customized 300 SL was LHD made me believe that it wasn't the Sultan's. I mean why spend so much money on it and then don't convert it to RHD, like the other high-end cars? But I wasn't 100% sure. A couple of days after I found that website for the first time I went over this again and discovered a nameplate in the 300SL with someone else's name. I've got the name on another computer, so I can't tell you it now, but I can tell you that it's not a Brunei car.

    Edit: BTW, here's a picture of one that I did'nt have in my gallery yet:

    Edit2: The name of the first owner of that car was the German Andreas.

    I don't know anything about a Speed 12. But it sounds like another good reason to visit Brunei, free these cars, restore them and get them on public roads <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
