Arab Royalty And Their Insane Car Collections



Arab Royalty have the most obscenely covetable car collections on Earth. They dwarf even the funniest American Comedian’s car collections by a country mile. Lamborghini Centenario’s, purple Lamborghini Sian’s, and Reventon’s are made with these extreme gear heads in mind. The Rainbow Sheik has a whopping 3,000 cars, including a non-street legal $1M 5,000 hp Devel Sixteen Rocket car. The Sultan of Brunei and his brother make an unsurprising appearance here as well, with their impossible Rolls-Royce collection and obscure rarities like his $1.1M BMW Nazca M12 prototype and his $81,028 Lamborghini Urracu. While many rich folk have rouble getting their hands on one Bugatti, Sultan bin Hamdan has five: four Bugatti Veyrons and one $362,000 Bugatti EB 110 in his 99 car collection. Pagani Huayra’s, which are still not road legal in the United States, roam free as falcons in Qatar. Ever heard of cars like the $3M Ferrari Monza SP2? The $3M Ferrari Sergio? The $1.5M Dhabiyan - the largest SUV in the world? We’ll dive into these cars and other uber rare exotics as well as some extreme gold plated custom jobs you’ll have to see to believe. One of these Royals has one of my favourite cars of all time: Elenor - the actual Shelby Mustang GT500 from the movie Gone in Sixty Seconds. Moe Al Thani bought it for $1M at auction.

Why Cloves Are So Expensive | So Expensive



In trees up to 50 feet tall, harvesters carefully handpick clove buds. When exported, less than half a pound of these dried cloves costs $30. But as they focus on keeping their balance, harvesters must also be careful not to break the buds. If they do, the value of the clove drops significantly. And that's just where the risk begins. To harvest cloves correctly, workers put their lives on the line. So what makes cloves worth the risks? And why are they so expensive?
