22 year old pays $71K to skip Aventador waiting list!

move to OT if this thread doesn't belong here, but since it's related to the Aventador figured it could go here.

the luxuries in life when your family is worth around $3 billion:

http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...r-waiting-list

Quote:
If you live in Saudi Arabia and decide to buy a new Lamborghini Aventador, patience had best be one of your strong points. The current wait for delivery of the carbon-composite supercar is 18 months, which means you wonít be rolling in Riyadh in your raging bull until May of 2013.

Unless, of course, money really isnít a concern. Dhiaa Al-Essa, like most 22-year-old males, loves cars. Unlike most 22-year-olds, Al-Essa isnít scrambling to come up with a down payment for a Volkswagen Jetta GLI; instead, the recent engineering school graduate spent $71,000 for the privilege of owning the first Lamborghini Aventador in Saudi Arabia.

Thatís on top of the Aventadorís sticker price of $387,000, which pegs the cost of Al-Essaís newest Lamborghini at $458,000. Weíre guessing that depreciation isnít a big concern for the Saudi man or his family, who has a reported net worth of some $2.3 billion.

As the duPont Registry points out, Al-Essa owns a few other cars as well, including a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, a Koenigsegg Agera, a Maybach 62, two Rolls-Royces, three Mercedes-Benzes, four Ferraris, two other Lamborghinis, two Porsches and a host of other bits and pieces worth some $12 million.

Weíre sure Al-Essa will enjoy his new Aventador, but whether or not it will supplant his 2010 Ferrari 599 GTO as his favorite remains to be seen.
here's the original dupont article:

http://www.dupontregistry.com/AUTOS/...tra-71000.aspx

and a quick google search got this:

going through his photos, all i was thinking first was "fuck my life is shit!", but after looking through more of his pics i couldn't stop laughing at just how ridiculous everything is for this kid!!

It says 1 of 599, not #1 of 599.

Moral of the story - life isn't fair but we all knew that already. Nice collection though, I'd have the same!

actually, life IS fair. some are just more fortunate or lucky than others and thats good for them. not his fault he was born into royalty (and i know you werent implying that). be happy for what you have and the people you know. some people would work their asses off for a 335 and you're fortunate enough to own one (and from the looks of your sig, it's a badass one)

much respect to him and his collection.

Plus he went to Uni. A lot of rich people just don't see the point of education as they don't need to work for lving in their life.

Mash'Allah. i would do the same if I could. Actually i would have probably paid more than 71k. lol.

Awesome, nice to creep around that boy's Facebook profile and check some of his amazin cars.

That tour of Europe would be amazing in a supercar, looks like he had a chase car at all times too. Choice.
