Used supercars must be the hardest automobile to sell since Datsun added lime green to their regular car color scheme. The previous owners are usually loaded fat cats with high insurance premiums who treat their cars like giant, drivable disposable Kleenex. The only way to be sure you're getting a good deal for your dollar is if the previous driver had never driven it.
A whole fleet of just such supercars are on sale, thanks to the Sultan of Brunei who is unloading some very spiffy and sporty cars that still read "000000" on their odometers.
And these aren't your aristocratic autos of stuffy, snobbish royalty either. Some of the supercars for sale include a Ferrari 365 Daytona, a very sleek looking Jaguar XJ220 and three different kinds of Lamborghinis. Most of these were never even driven. They just became the garage trophies of an over-indulged ruler who clearly just threw around millions of his people's tax dollars to help "grow his image," if you know what I mean.
