Malaysian businessman talks about his supercar collection: he drives a Proton himself 1




Malaysian businessman Chin Jin Ping is one of the largest collectors of luxury cars in Southeast Asia. According to the Carscoops portal, his garage includes about a hundred various rare models.

The collection of the man is quite diverse. There are both modern supercars and classic vintage models. And also he has a few movie cars built especially for movies shooting.

The most curious thing is that Chin Jin Ping does not drive these cars. He uses budget Proton X50 and X70 crossovers as everyday cars, thus avoiding unnecessary attention to his persona.

The man says that his passion for cars appeared in his childhood. He was born in a poor family, and for many years his father could not afford to buy a new car.

In 1996, Chin Jin Ping founded his own IT company, which later allowed him to make a multimillion-dollar fortune. Getting rich, he began to systematically acquire rare car models.

The businessman had been collecting his present collection for two and a half decades. At the moment, his garage is also a few vintage cars, lighted in the James Bond movies and The Godfather.

Among the acquired by a man car, there are several Bugatti, to which he has a special love. Thus, he bought his first Hypercar of the French brand in 2016. It was a Chiron, which cost $2.6 million.

Then the collector bought one of the Bugatti Divo (the model circulation is only 40 pieces) worth about $5.7 million. And Chin Jin Ping is looking forward to the previously ordered Bugatti Bolide, which he should ship only on the twenty-fourth. It is not known how much this car cost him.
