The best car collection... in the world?

There's a handsome smattering of BMWs, including a meticulously restored early Eighties 6-Series ETCC veteran (as raced by Gerhard Berger, amongst others). A new 1-Series M Coupe sits alongside its late Nineties predecessor.
"Yes, I like going sideways," Lopez freely admits," though you have to be careful in the old one... I had one of those years ago. You have a first relationship with a car, and when it goes you start to remember the high points, which is when you realise that a car was really special or not. It's only when you see someone else driving one you think, ‘I need this car back in my life.'"
