The former president of Bolivian airline AeroSur, Humero Roca, recently fled the South American country after it was alleged he embezzled over $37.2 million from the company. Roca may have taken a lot, but he’s also left a lot behind – including 60 stunning vehicles.
Dhiaa Al-Essa had already hit Internet stardom (for better or worse) with his collection of 30 or so exotic supercars. Now that final count is at 33 after taking delivery of two of Ferrari’s finest automobiles. The first Ferrari 599 GTO is now in his possession and to make it an interesting match, Al-Essa took hold of the very last (499/499) Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16M.
“I’ve been so excited about the Ferrari 599 GTO – I have had to wait six months for it to arrive. It’s a limited edition car with more technology than pretty much any other car in the world – and it’s the fastest ever Ferrari.” Al-Essa told the media.
The 599 GTO pushes out 660-hp and is the most powerful car out of Ferrari’s factory. Al-Essa also told the media that it’s his new favorite car (duh), overtaking his previous favorite, Mercedes-Benz’s McLaren SLR.
Looks like the fun won’t be ending there for Dhiaa, having ordered a replacement 458 Italia after his tragically burned down (photo in the gallery of its remains). And on his list of incoming cars? How about Ferrari’s SA Aperta in May, Koenigsegg’s Agera and a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
