The largest super car haul.

What do you get when you rule an oil-rich country for 32 years? A huge bank account and the capability to buy, not some, but almost every rare super car on this planet. And when youíre going through a corruption probe, this might transpire.

The country that I mentioned earlier is Equatorial Guinea. It is located in Middle Africa. It is an oil rich state and is run by their president, Teodoro Obiang. The president of The Republic of Equatorial Guinea and his family has, obviously, amassed a huge sum of money governing the country. The president is known to be a notorious dictator.

The cars you see in the pictures are owned by his eldest son, Teodorin Obiang. The family is known to live a life of luxury. His son owns properties in Malibu and South Africa and quite a number of the rarest sports cars. And he was once criticised by the world media for spending a large sum of money over one weekend.

A number of courts around the world have launched a corruption probe into the president and his son, once famous for ordering a $320 million super yacht. The pictures here were taken along a street in Paris, France. They show 11 of Teodorinís cars being uploaded by police onto a truck. Among the seized vehicles were a Ferrari Enzo and 599 GTO, two Bugatti Veyrons (including one red chrome GrandSport), an Aston Martin One-77 and a V8 V600 LeMans, a Maserati MC12, a Porsche Carrera GT and a Rolls-Royce, plus a few more unnamed vehicles.

Apparently, he has more rides at his Malibu abode. This would not be an inconvenience to him and most probably heís not bothered much about it.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
