Crib has hidden garage filled with Lamborghinis



Amazing what money can buy these days.  We’re not talking about the exotic cars in the video.  As much as we love to see a bunch of Lamborghinis in such close proximity, we have to say that having a raising garage is something else.  “Hey look, I have two Lamborghini Countachs! Wait, just kidding, I have two Diablos, too! Oh, you didn’t see my Ferrari?  Look closer!”

Kudos to the ridiculously rich bloke with this.  We’re more impressed with the car collection than the hidden garage.
