Ferrari Collector David Lee's Car Collection Expands With The 2024 Purosangue

David Lee owns around 30 cars, which isn’t a lot compared to other high-end car collectors, but what separates him from everyone else is the quality of each car in his collection and the fact that he is always willing to share his passion for car collecting with everyone else.

Ferrari Collector David Lee's car collection is worth more than $50 million, and it mostly consists of Ferraris. These include the 250 Lusso Competizione, Ferrari 275 GTB/4, 330 GTS, 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder, 288 GTO, LaFerrari Aperta, and the latest 2024 Purosangue. He even has some Ferraris, like the Enzo, the F40, and the F50, both in red and yellow, as part of his collection. And, because of this, some could say that he has one of the best Ferrari collections out there.

Ferrari Collector David Lee’s “Big Five” Ferrari Collection

Known for being a premium Ferrari client, Ferrari Collector David Lee’s Ferrari collection is just out of the world. However, his most famous Ferraris known as the “Big Five” or “Mustard & Ketchup” collection houses some of the best Ferrari supercars to date. 

21. Ferrari 288 GTO (The Dream Car)

Every individual has had the urge to possess their dream car and for Ferrari Collector David Lee, it's the 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO. Seeing the 288 GTO in a car magazine during his college years to actually owning the car was a remarkable achievement for Mr. David Lee.

The 1975 288 GTO had only 272 units ever built and to make it even more interesting, David has his all-time favorite car in pairs - one with a classic Ketchup-Red exterior (US-spec) and the other one in a rare Mustard-Yellow (Europe-spec) color scheme. Also, driving the 288 GTO fitted with the 80s’ Twin-Turbo fitted V8 engine surely gives Mr. Lee all the goosebumps he had as a teenager.

20. Ferrari F40

The next one on the list is the infamous Ferrari F40. Being the first production car to go over 200 mph makes the F40 a special one in David Lee’s car collection. This was also the last car that Mr. Enzo worked on wanting to put a race car on the road, eventually putting Ferrari on the world map.

Well, just like his 288 GTO David also has his Ferrari F40 in pairs with Mustard (Europe-spec) & Ketchup (US-spec) color combination. The difference between these two models is mediocre. While the US-spe version has three exhaust outlets and over-the-shoulder seat belts, the Europe-spec model has a more unique triple exhaust outlet way and a four-point harness seat belt configuration. 

19. Ferrari F50

If you are wondering which supercar David Lee enjoys the most while driving, it's his Ferrari F50. The first of its kind, the F50 came with an F1 V12 engine while most of the bodywork sustained carbon-fiber components making it surprisingly quick and lightweight at the same time.

And again, Mr. Lee has his F50s in the same “Mustard & Ketchup” theme pairs but the only difference is that the US-spec model (Red) has a soft top while the Europe-spec (Yellow) comes with a hard top. Also, his Yellow F50 is among one of the original 31 units to be ever produced. 

18. Enzo Ferrari

Named after the great “Enzo Ferrari” himself, David’s garage features the infamous Ferrari Enzo supercar with both a “Mustard & Ketchup” color combo. Built with only 399 units, the Ferrari Enzo was the first car to have butterfly doors in a car but also the bodywork was done after taking inspiration from the infamous Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet.

The Ferrari Enzo holds much more history as the Legendary Ferrari F1 Racer Michael Schumacher had personally worked on the F1 car’s transmission at that time which later became part of the Ferrari Enzo’s machinery. 

17. Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta (The Crown Jewel)

Lastly, the crown jewel of the “Big Five” in Mr Lee’s collection is the 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. With only 210 units ever built, David Lee’s LaFerrari Aperta is unique as it has the “David SK Lee” name engraved on a gold plate sitting on the bottom of the steering wheel. Before the Aperta, David originally had a LaFerrari Coupe in his collection which he sold to Robert Herjavec a few years ago.

Mr. Lee’s “Big Five” collection comes with a pair of yellow and red color combos for every car except for the Aperta. Knowing how critical David Lee is about his Ferraris, we can surely expect a Yellow Aperta next in his collection.  

Ferrari Collector David Lee’s Classic Ferraris

Ferrari Collector David Lee's 250 Lusso Competizione, 275 GTB 4-Cam, 330 GTS, 365 GTS Daytona Spider, and Restomod 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 (Dino Monza 3.6 Evo)Source: Ferrari Collector David Lee (YouTube Channel)

Over the years, Ferrari Collector David Lee has owned several classic Ferrari models. While most of them are sold, he still has five vintage Ferrari models that are all-time favorites in Ferrari Automotives. 

16. Ferrari 250 Lusso Competizione

David Personally defines himself as a “Classic car gentleman racing” person and what better car to portray his racing enthusiasm than the 1964 Ferrari 250 Lusso Competizione? Mr. David’s YouTube channel has several videos of him driving or racing with the Yellow 250 Lusso Competizione.

The Ferrari 250 Lusso didn’t come as a track-focused car at first but people saw potential and bought back the model and modded it with track-oriented specs and parts to get more performance out of the 250 Lusso. Also, the Ferrari collector himself said in his YouTube video, “... I would say this is my most valuable car, most rare car, and I love it…”

15. Ferrari 275 GTB 4-Cam

Revered by most Ferrari enthusiasts, the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB 4-Cam is probably the most loved classic Ferrari model and is also referred to as “The One” making it the most desirable Classic Ferrari. David frequently takes his 275 GTB/4 to the concourse and to make it more special, the car has secured 100 Point Platinum on several occasions. 

David even took his 275 GTB/4 to Jay Leno’s Garage and talked about the car’s history marking its status as a prominent “Beauty Queen” among other Ferrari Models. 

14. Ferrari 330 GTS

Just like the 275 GTB, David’s 330 GTS also has 100 Point Platinum back-to-back years with the “Best Of Show” title to its name. However, Lee’s 330 GTS has an interesting catch to it. What do u think it is? 

Before David, the 330 GTS belonged to American billionaire Lex Wexner, the former CEO of “Victoria’s Secret”. Already valuable with only 99 units to be ever built, Lex and David made a handshake deal over the 330 GTS and sold it. 

13. Ferrari 365 GTS Daytona Spider

Another masterpiece to add to David’s garage is the classic 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS Daytona Spider. This model was a special one as a black colored replica of the 365 GTS was used in the famous American TV series “Miami Vice” acted by Don Jhonson and Philip Michael Thomas putting Ferrari on the mainstream of non-car people. 

Film director of “Miami Vice” Mr. Michael Mann once visited David Lee’s garage and shared another cool story regarding Ferrari and “Miami Vice”.  He said that People got excited about Ferrari cars after seeing it on the show and eventually Ferrari reached out to him and offered a White Testarossa. The car went on to feature in the TV series and became Ferrari’s free advertisement worldwide.  

12. Restomod 1973 Ferrari Dino 246

Named after Enzo’s son Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, the Dino 246 was a cool car but lacked power because of its 192-hp V6 engine. David felt an urge to foresee what Ferrari could’ve done with the Dino. Well, after a good talk with his buddy Magnus Walker who is famous for modifying 911s, David ventured into 18 months of uncharted territory of modification using only original Ferrari OEM parts. 

After the job was done, it cost David over $1 million dollars for the whole customization process and the result was a one-of-a-kind Monza 3.6 Evo. The car features a Ferrari V8 engine fitted with a fuel injection system churning out 400 ponies. Other cool features include MoTec onboard computers, recast 17-inch wheels, KONI Suspension, 328 transmissions, new radiators, and basically the whole car has gone through a deep custom job. 

The car made headlines in the automotive industry and Octane magazine, MotorTrend, Road & Track, etc covered the whole story about David Lee’s Dino Monza 3.6 Evo. Mr. Lee even took the car to Jay Leno’s Garage back in 2018 where Jay drove the Dino Monza and stated, “...this is what restomod should be, it’s just so nicely done that I defy anybody look at this and think it’s not a factory job…” 

Ferrari Collector David Lee’s Limited Edition Ferraris

Having the “World’s Largest Ferrari Collector” title to his name and not owning special limited edition Ferrari models is unlikely. CEO and Chairman of Hing Wa Lee Jewelers, Mr. David Lee has some of the most fascinating and limited edition Ferrari models in his car collection making him worthy of his given title. 

11. Michael Schumacher's F2002 F1 Car

Despite having more than 300 different models, Ferrari’s F1 race cars have been their holy grail since the Italian Automaker giant stepped foot in the F1 world. Likely, Ferrari chooses very wisely to whom their prized F1 cars should be handed over to carry out their historical legacy. Back in 2017 when David already made a lasting profile as one of Ferrari’s VVIP customers, the Italian Automaker picked Lee for his first-ever F1 car to be handed over.

At first, he was offered famous F1 racer Fernando Alonso’s F1 car but the Ferrari collector respectfully declined it. A few months later, Ferrari again offered Lee another F1 race car but this time around it was the legendary F1 driver Michael Schumacher’s F2002 championship-winning F1 Car. David couldn’t resist his temptation and agreed to the deal as he had been a huge fan of Schumacher for a long time. 

David has the F1 car sitting in his garage moreover he also has an F1 helmet signed by Michael Schumacher and a racing suit. Knowing the racing blood in David’s system, we can surely expect a video of him driving the F2002 in the near future. 

10. David Lee’s Ferrari F12 tdf DSKL

How big of a Ferrari customer you should be that the brand makes a one-of-a-kind tribute car to your name? Well, ask David about the experience. Upon their 70-year anniversary, Ferrari chose 70 different old Ferrari models and decided to do a modern take based on those old classics. 

Ferrari Collector David Lee's Ferrari F12 tdf DSKLSource: Ferrari Collector David Lee (YouTube Channel)

So it happens that David’s 1964 250 Lusso Competizione was chosen and they made a modern interpretation of the 250 Lusso into their ongoing F12 tdf project. Among the 799 units of the F12 tdf which is already a limited edition, David’s F12 tdf is a one-of-a-kind spec car in the world. Also, the DSKL stands for David S.K. Lee.

9. Ferrari Collector David Lee’s Ferrari 812 Competizione Aperta “Cavalcade Spec”

Lastly, the most recent limited edition Ferrari model in David Lee’s car collection is the 2024 Ferrari 812 Competizione Aperta “Cavalcade Spec”. Built for only 599 units in the world, David’s 812 Competizione Aperta is the first on the US shore. Mr. Lee has been a frequent guest in Ferrari’s Cavalcade events and for its 10th year anniversary, the carmaker came up with a crazy spec - a color-changing exterior paint job that turns from bronze to green known as “Verde Volterra” (a landscape in Tuscany) or Cavalcade-Spec (100 units).

The car produces a total of 619 horsepower and can sprint a 60 mph run in just 2.85 seconds thanks to its naturally aspirated V12 engine. For the interior, the seats are fitted with Alcantara fabric alongside a Cavalcade design theme. It also has gun handle material used in the cabin and a plaque between two seats with David’s name and the first Cavalcade he attended back in 2016 in Venice. Moreover, his “Cavalcade Aperta” was also featured at the “Casa Ferrari” in Pebble Beach Rally back in 2023. 

Ferrari Collector David Lee’s “Blue Collection”

Despite David’s knack for Ferrari cars, he also likes to match his wristwatch color with the car he drives daily. Well, having a blue theme on one of his wristwatches makes a perfect duo for his “Blue Collection” which is a collection of 5 different cars from brands such as Ferrari, Porsche, Ford, and Rolls-Royce. 

8. Tailor Made Ferrari SF90 Spider “Inspiranzioni”

Starting off Lee’s “New Blue Collection” the first spot goes to his one-of-a-kind SF90 Spider “Inspironzioni” Tailor made. This specific car is the only one existing in the world that Ferrari delivered to David back in 2022 before the Pebble Beach Monterey Car Week. 

The Blue SF90 Spider “Inspironzioni” was a predesigned car from the Italian carmaker that was made as a tribute to the 1969 Ferrari 365 2+2.  

7. Porsche 911 GT3

David’s taste in cars not only centers around Ferrari as the Ferrari collector also admired Porsche models for a very long time considering he had a Porsche Carrera GT back in the day which later he sold to a good friend of his. 

David’s existing Porsche collection has a 911 GT3 model that has a rare “Shark Blue” color theme. But what more does this GT3 have that makes it special? Well, On the inside, the interior is mostly covered in black components but “Shark Blue” seat belts with the same color stitching on the seats and “Shark Blue” air vent grille make this rear-engine V6 machine a special one in David’s “New Blue Collection”. 

6. Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS

While the GT3 has more power still it can’t outperform David’s 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The GT4 RS has a mid-mounted engine enabling it to be a track-assassin also the added performance package with carbon-fiber elements makes it much lighter than the GT3. 

David made a separate video showing his “New Blue Collection” where he talked about his GT4 RS. While explaining about his GT4 RS, the Ferrari collector forgot what the color was and quickly shifted into giving his own personal flame calling it the “David Blue”. 

5. Ford GT “Carbon Series”

This Ford GT is amazing…” Despite being a die-hard Ferrari fan and the infamous rivalry of “Ford vs. Ferrari”, David couldn’t resist praising the all-American eye candy of a car - the Ford GT. In his perception, David wanted to fulfill the Ford vs Ferrari narrative but actually getting one of these in hand is a challenge.

However, after a long and detailed process of explanation and application, David finally got one in his collection and to make it more special Ford offered him the limited “Carbon Series” (100 out of 1,300 units) of the Ford GT. The model boasts carbon-fiber components from top to bottom resulting in 39 lbs of weight reduction. Also, this track-focused variant came with titanium sport exhaust, titanium lug nuts, carbon-fiber wheels, and a bare carbon-fiber stripe running down the length of the car. 

4. Rolls-Royce Phantom VII

The CEO of Hing Wa Lee Group left no stone unturned as he also owns one and the only Rolls-Royce in his car collection - a 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom VII. Originally, David bought the Phantom VII as a gift for his father back in 2005. Several years later, his father’s Phantom VII resides under David’s “New Blue Collection”. 

Ferrari Collector David Lee Adds New Cars To His Collection

For the past one and a half years, David Lee added some new models including Ferrari’s first-ever SUV. Let’s take a closer look at these new additions.

3. David Lee’s Brand New Ferrari Purosangue

As Ferrari finally accepted the need to change their marketing strategy and the urge to step foot into the SUV world, the most anticipated model among other Ferrari cars has been the Purosangue. Just about a week ago on March 28, 2024, David posted a video on his YouTube channel showing his newly bought Yellow 2024 Ferrari Purosangue. 

Knowing the sophisticated nature of Mr. Lee, he bought his Purosangue featuring the optional “carbon-fiber” package adding carbon-fiber elements throughout the SUV. David took his “FUV” for a spin alongside his cameraman where the person filming the video asked what he thought of Drake’s “Broke Boys” song to which Mr. Lee gently teased the rapper if he got his Purosangue or not.

2. David Lee’s Ferrari 488 “Burgundy” Pista Spider

The next one on the list is one of David’s favorite Ferrari models - the 488 Pista Spider. This particular car holds a special place in his car collection as it features a very special exterior paint job - the historical “Metalic Burgundy” color alongside an Ivory stripe.

It also took more time than the rest of his cars because the carbon-fiber bumper in front is also painted in the same Burgundy color. The Pista spider cost Mr. Lee a total of $650K and that is probably why he will never gonna sell it. 

1. Ferrari Roma

Back in 2021, David added the new Ferrari Roma to his collection. While the base price of the Roma at that time was about $200K, David’s Ferrari Roma came with a price tag of $270K for the added packages and attachments. As per David’s own perspective, the Ferrari Roma is a financially approachable car than the other Ferrari models.   

Besides these three models, David also owns a Black Ferrari 296 GTS, a Yellow 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB (with Assanto Fiano Package), a 2021 Ferrari 812 GTS Convertible, and a Black Ferrari F8 Spider.

3. 2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale “Assetto Fiorano”

So, 2021 was a big step up for Ferrari as the much anticipated SF90 Stradale just came out and naturally David bought one of them. However, he did it in style buying it with the “Assetto Fiorano” package costing him over $700,000 in total. 

A 4.0L 769-hp V8 engine with a hybrid powertrain capable of reaching 0-60 in just 2.1 seconds! Hell yeah, it looks like Mr. Lee knows which cards to play and how far he can go when buying a Ferrari montage. There is even a video of him getting his SF90 Stradale Assetto Fiorano delivered while making a garage tour with the famous YouTuber and enthusiast Tim Shmee back in 2021.

2. 2016 McLaren P1 GTR

If you’ve got bored of hearing and reading about the different species of Ferraris from the Stone Age, here is a McLaren for you. To celebrate 20 years since their victory at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, McLaren announced that they would be bringing back the GTR name by making a track-only version of the P1. 

McLaren ended up making 58 units of the track-only P1 GTR. 27 of the 58 track-only P1 GTRs were modified to become road-legal, and David Lee has one of them in yellow. The road-legal version of the McLaren P1 GTR is very rare and is estimated to cost around $5,000,000.

1. 2015 Pagani Huayra 730S Da Vinci

Around 2016, David bought the one-off Pagani Huayra 730S Edition from film producer Alejandro Salomon. He has since upgraded the Huayra with the Pacchetto Tempesta package. 

He then ended up renaming it the Pagani Huayra 730S Da Vinci. The original selling price of the Huayra 730S Edition was $2,400,000 in 2015. Since then, its value has increased a lot and is rumored to be worth more than $3,000,000. Later, back in 2022, David sold his Pagani for a good deal. 

This is it for now what Ferrari Collector David Lee’s car collection has to offer. As we know, Mr. Lee’s collection is always dynamic putting something new to his collection every now and then, we will be back with new updates in case he adds new cars to his collection. Until then stay tuned.
