I can’t say from experience, but from where i’m sitting, it sure must be fun to be a royal. The assets of many royal families have been known to don headlines for their exclusivity and distinct designs. In fact some of the most extensive collections of one-of-a-kind automobiles belong to heads of state. We take a look at some of the most impressive below: benzThe owner of not 20 or 50, but more than 300 of the world’s most exotic automobiles ever built, Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal is the proud owner of a handmade diamond-studded Mercedes SL 600. The drop dead gorgeous work of art is a mixture of diamonds and Swarovski crystals. The truly one-of-a-kind supercar was unveiled in Dubai in 2007 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mercedes Benz.bentNormally spotted behind the wheel of her custom Range Rover, her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II uses her custom-built Bentley State Limousine for ‘special occasions’. Unique features include a transparent passenger rooftop, special monocoque chassis construction, special internal cabin height allowing the Queen to stand upright while exiting the vehicle, and hind doors which open at an angle of 90 degrees, making it easier for Her Majesty to face the peasants directly and without hindrance.Talk about a Prince with style… Crown Prince Sultan Bin Rashed al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, is the proud owner of a limited edition (limited to 1) Mercedes Benz G55 AMG. Dubbed the ‘AS55K Yaas Edition’ the custom-built SUV is equipped with 22-inch alloys wrapped in high-performance run-flat tires. His Highness also opted for 12 projector lamps including four xenon upper-beam headlights and eight fog lamps.cexiAt one time Sultan Hassan al Bolkiah of Brunei owned the largest private car collection in the world. Reportedly a huge fan of Rolls Royce, the Sultan owns in excess of 500 of them. This particular one pictured above is a custom-made Rolls Royce Coupe (and the only one to feature scissor doors).astonPrince Charles’ midnight-blue Aston Martin DB6 MKII Volante is no stranger to the limelight. This is the same car Prince William drove on his wedding day to Kate Middleton. Not sure to what extent this is true, but according to Bornrich, “the specialty of this car includes its engine which runs on alcohol-based fuel, made from the grapes grown in the royal garden of the British royal family.”
