NOPE, his name isn't Karson Choi.

His Lamborghini Reventon was officially brought here in Vancouver, BC, Canada and registered here.

Also when his Reventon is in HK, only his own family members know it is in HK b/c he never drives it there in HK, just put it, it is for his viewing pleasure until he decides to ship to another home of his. Again, won't say his name, but when he is in HK, he is usually only there for business so most time, you will find me in the back seats of either his Maybach 62S or his Bentley.

The last I heard, which was about 2 weeks ago, was that his Reventon is now sitting in a garage at his San Francisco home.

@KennyMK6R it must be awesome just to help him clean and polish his beauties. I would do anything just to do that. Lol thanks for sharing the story with us. He mustve felt so embarrassed and full of laughter to find it is his car, not someone elses.
If it is possible, and okay with him ofcourse, please, do post a few pictures of his sweet rides. I think I saw a picture of his Reventon on this site before, but it was removed I suppose

Kenny, Symbolic Motors in San Diego has had an MC12 for a while. That would be his best bet.

tramonto,

I love too ... BUT see my comment below ... I can't !!!

And I can't really make him angry for very personal reason ... Just say he is kind of related to one of my family member. That's the only reason I know him, thru my family member.

If you or anybody don't believe me, then sorry I cannot do anything about it ... I will definitely upload photos here once he says okay to it.

Kenny, I think it would be legit if you uploaded a pic or two of the garage. Do the others agree?

Yeah, definitely a crazy insane collection he has. Imagine how I feel going to his mansion every weekend to help him clean / vacuum / detail his exotics for him PLUS he pays me to do it when he is not in town. Right now in Vancouver, he has the following:

- Lamborghini Reventon coupe
- Porsche 918 Spyder
- Lamborghini Countach
- Ferrari 550 Maranello
- Porsche 911 Turbo S - 918 Edition convertible
- Porsche Cayenne Turbo S - Techart modified
- Porsche Carrera GT
- An old Bentley Arnage

He had his Mclaren MP4-12C coupe for awhile late last year, damn sweet ride, he let me borrowed it for a few times when I had a hot date ... LOL :) ... In December, he had it shipped to his home in Florida.

I always asked him what car he wants to buy next, now he is saying he might consider a Maserati MC12, if he can find one.

He and I always laughs about the joke that he told me years ago, he is so rich he says he sometimes forget what cars he owns and where he has them ... So the story goes one morning he woke up at his Paris villa and walks out to his bedroom's balcony and looks down and see a brand new Mercedes S65 AMG sedan in his driveway, so he screamed at his assistants why they let someone park in his driveway only to get a response from his head assistant that S65 was his car, at which point he replied, he thought he only have a Mercedes SLR722S in Paris, his assistant reminded him the last time he was in Paris, he brought it because he wanted a luxury sedan so when he took the SLR in for servicing, he ended up buying a Mercedes S65 AMG as well !!!!

Must be nice to be that rich :)

veneno1854,

You see, he was one of those people in the world that was happy when Lamborghini announced that they were going to make only 20 Reventon, and that's it, that is why he brought one, thinking he is one of twenty people in the whole world that will have one. So he was mad when Lamborghini was going to make a roadster version of it.

That is why he told me NOT to believe Lamborghini came out with their newest supercar, the Veneno, almost immediately, he told me that to mark his word that they will come out with a roadster version of it soon, and look what Lamborghini did.

I understand. Hes a lucky guy. Oh and do you have any idea why he was mad at Lamborghini for not making more Reventons when he already has one?

veneno1854,

I don't want to get into trouble by him as he is always on this site watching out for ppl uploading photos of his exotics.

So all I am going to say is it is all family money ... He inherit the family business and he is just sitting back collecting royalty and dividends in the thousands by the hour.

Yep, that was definitely a SWEET ride, unfortunately, whether you want to believe me or not, he won't let me post any photos of ANY of his sweet rides here. He already fired one of his assistants in HK when he had his Reventon in HK for a bit and the assistant took a photo of it and uploaded it here before shipping it back here.

For a while there, he was going to sell the Reventon as he got mad @ Lamborghini as they promised not to make any more Reventon, which obviously we all know not true as they turned around and made a Reventon Roadster.

I am waiting for him to ship his Enzo back to Vancouver ... He said he will probably will when his new enormous mansion in West Vancouver is finished !!

Some of the insane supercars he have are: ... He has like 20 homes around the world, so all of these vehicles are NOT here in Vancouver, he ships his vehicle all over the world to his liking:

Porsche Carrera GT
Porsche 911 Turbo S - 918 Edition coupe
Porsche 911 Turbo S - 918 Edition convertible
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S - Techart modified
Ferrari Enzo
Ferrari F40
Ferrari F50
Ferrari 550 Maranello
Lamborghini Reventon Coupe
Lamborghini Murcielago SV
Lamborghini Countach [ He said he will NEVER sell this one, brought it when he made his 1st million ]
Bugatti Veyron Grandsport
Pagani Huayra
Pagani Zonda S
Gumpert Apollo
Koenigsegg CCX
Koenigsegg Agera R
Mclaren MP4-12C ( brought the coupe, then recently brought the roadster as well )

Of course, he has some other "normal" luxury sedans and vehicles like a BMW Alpha B7, Mercedes S63 AMG sedan, Mercedes SLS coupe, an old Bentley Arnage, and a Rolls Royce, not sure what model, but it is one of those really old ones.

I love when he comes back to Vancouver in the summer as he always calls me up and we would go for a nice scenic drive up in Whistler with his cars, he would call me along with like 3 or 4 of his other friends and each of us would drive one of his cars and drive up to Whistler for the day then turn back.
