What would you do if you had a net worth of $20 billion?

For Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan, it would be indulging in cars, especially the oversized ones.

Also known as the Rainbow Sheikh, he’s part of Abu Dhabi’s ruling family.

Sheikh Hamad’s humongous car collection

Sheikh Hamad is a seriously wealthy dude, and that means that he also loves his cars.

But unlike most billionaires with a luxury car collection, Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan has a love for quirky and oversized vehicles.

His cars are displayed in museums across UAE and Morocco.

Sheikh even has a love for rainbow-colored cars, crafting a rainbow fleet of Mercedes S-classes.

Supersized cars owned by a UAE royal

Now coming back to his fleet of oversized automobiles.

Among his supersized cars is a towering replica of a World War II-era Willys Jeep.

Another standout is the Dhabiyan, a monstrous SUV with ten wheels that makes commercial vehicles look tiny in comparison.

His Hummer is nothing ordinary either.

Called the X3 for being three times larger than a normal H1, this giant even has a bathroom inside.

Each tire of his Hummer costs around $25,000.

The RAM 2500 is a regular SUV, but with tires as tall as 2.6 meters.

His car collection would easily surpass that of Cristiano Ronaldo or Johnny Depp’s.

Sheikh and his Guinness World Records

Interestingly, Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan also has a few Guinness World Records to his name.

One of the most staggering ones is that he has the biggest collection of 4X4 cars.

His total car collection exceeds 3,000 cars.

That’s big enough to even forget that you own a particular car, just like Rick Ross, who forgot he owns a Cadillac Escalade.

While his passion for giant unusual cars might be slightly OTT for most of us, it’s the ultimate pleasure for Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan.
