Ian Poulter shows off his awesome car collection
Anyone who follows pro golf a little bit knows that Ian Poulter is one serious gearhead. As he has shown us in numerous photos over the years, the Orlando-based Englishman owns multiple eye-popping supercars, many of them Ferraris.
On Thursday, though, he topped even himself by sharing a photo of his entire – at least I think it's his entire – car collection, which is posted above and in the tweet below. It shows seven cars – five of them Ferraris, with a Rolls Royce Ghost in the back left and a Ford GT-40 in the back right.

As you can see in the tweet, Poulter is considering shaking up his collection by parting ways with the Rolls – and he says, possibly replacing it with a Bentley later this year. He's got his eye on a Mulsanne, but if it were me, I'd have to go with the Continental GT.
Poulter catches a lot of flak on Twitter from people who seem to be jealous of his collection or who disapprove of his spending so much money on cars that he admittedly seldom drives. In his defense, few assets appreciate more consistently than top-of-the-line supercars. As much as he's spent amassing his collection, he very likely could sell any or all of these babies for more – and probably much more – than he paid for them.
Meantime, there's no reason that my old buddy Poults couldn't lend me that Enzo sitting front and center in the photo for a little while. I'll take real good care of it, I promise!
