Brunei is one of the countries in South Asia, quite small in size and shares a border with Malaysia. It’s among the oil-producing nations in the world, and generates revenue from oil exportation. Generating $60K GDP per capita, its citizens are able to live comfortably. Strict immigration laws in the country checkmate the inflow of immigrants into the country, hence, their available resources are able to go round.

Particularly, Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah is very popular for his many cars. At the last count, he owned over 5,000 cars worth about $5 billion dollars (N2.3 trillion) in total.

List of cars owned by Brunei sultan Hassanal Bolkiah

1. Limo

A limo is always present in the fleet of cars owned by world leaders, and a Monarch is no exception. The sultan owns a luxurious customized Rolls Royce Silver Spur befitting his lavish lifestyle.

Priced at about $14 million (~N5 billion), Bolkiah acquired the vehicle for his wedding. Decorated with 24k gold, it was indeed a symbol of his royalty on the big day.
