A 22 year old lad has paid a whopping $71,000 (INR 36,92,000) premium just to become the first person in Saudi Arabia to own a Lamborghini Aventador. Dhiaa Al-Essa – a man who’s collection of supercars spans well over 30 vehicles and is worth more than $12 million.
Al-Essa has now added a new toy to his collection. He recently cashed out nearly $461,000 for the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4… wait. $461,000? “That’s not how much the Aventador costs anywhere in the world,” you say. Well, Al-Essa ended up paying $71,000 over the regular price to skip the 18-month waiting list, making him the first in the country with the new Aventador.
He did the next best thing, he contacted Shaun Williams, 41, has been in this business for the past two years who sources and supplies super cars for wealthy adults and paid $461,000 for a car which would otherwise have cost $390,000. Lamborghini Aventador was sourced in Europe and shipped to UK before reaching Riyadh on a Boeing 747. This will be the first Aventador in Saudi Arabia and in the garage of Dhiaa, a 22 year old Saudi student.
What does Al-Essa do for a living? Not much really – besides being the son of a Saudi business tycoon with an estimated net worth of more than $2.4 billion.
