Student Dhiaa Al-Essa has 30 luxury motors in his garage, including four Ferraris, five Porsches, three Lamborghinis, two Rolls Royces and a Mercedes SLR McLaren.

Jealous? What makes it even worse is that he hasn’t had to lift a finger to get them – Daddy buys them.

The value of his collection is set to soar 70 per cent next year when he takes delivery of two more cars.

His Saudi business tycoon father is to buy him a Koenigsegg Agera – complete with gold key – for his 22nd birthday and the boy racer also has a Bugatti Veyron on order. The bill for the two cars comes to £3.2million.

All his vehicles have a personalised number plate featuring the figures 070 – which set him back about £100,000 a time.

The international playboy has spent the summer flying his cars to London, Montreal, Las Vegas and New York to go on driving tours with friends.

‘I love speed but the limit in Saudi Arabia is 75mph so I’m pretty limited. When the Bugatti arrives I hope to take it to Germany where you can drive as fast as you can,’ said the engineering student from Riyadh.

‘The Mercedes McLaren SLR is my favourite. I love the way it looks and drives and it’s also been reliable for a car out in 50ºC temperatures.’

But Mr Al-Essa was ‘devastated’ by the loss of his new Ferrari 458 Italia, which fell victim to the model’s jinx, being destroyed in a warehouse blaze at Heathrow this month.

The disaster forced him to use his Mercedes and even the Underground. ‘I actually love travelling on public transport,’ he said.

But his torment will be short-lived – he is replacing the wrecked 458 with the new Ferrari 599 Roadster, production number 70 of 70.
