The cost of Lolly Jackson's cars
Like any great business man, Lolly loved luxuries and one of the luxuries he adored the most was cars. On his website he has 15 top of the range sports and vintage cars - here's an estimate of what these bad boys would be worth:
Aston Martin DB9: R2 150 00
Porsche 911 Turbo: R1 077 340
Dodge Viper: R669 077
Porsche Cayenne Magnum: R934 747
Pagani Zonda (there are only about 10 of these made per year): R11 million(reportedly)
Pontiac GTO Firebird: Unknown
Ferrari 360 Modena: R 748 547
Studebaker Commander: Unknown
Ford GT 40: R1 122 702
Koenigsegg CCX: R14 million
Dodge Challenger: R 308 578
Mercedes-Benz SL65 Black: R4 Million
Mclaren SLR: R3 704 697
Lamborghini Murcielago: R2 861 553
Total (estimated) spend on cars: R94 416 982
With so many beautiful cars at your disposal, he probably paid a pretty penny on his insurance but where did keep his extensive collection of cars?
In his massive house in Bedfordview of course! Back in 2009 Lolly put his five bedroom house up for auction. The house also has gym, sauna, Jacuzzi, five garages, massive garden, pool and an aviary. Whew! It's not known how much the home was auctioned off for but one can only imagine.
If you at one stage thought you were Mr. Jackson and you are now drowning in a sea of debt, why not consult with a debt counselor to get yourself financially fit again.
