    My current life:

    Dodge Challenger Demon - daily driver
    Ferrari 458 spider - fun exotic
    Lincoln Navigator - wife’s car

    Now if I had unlimited funds I would have a huge garage with probably 14 cars. I would then drive a different one every day to keep them all in good shape.

    Warehouses with 150 cars make me sad because they are not being driven.

    Ok if pinned down to the minimum.. one "needs" ;
    A vintage front engined Ferrari. Daytona is the standard go-to. Anything older than that qualifies if not automatic..
    A semi-modern no-holds barred nut job exotic like a F40, 50 or above. (Porsche Carrera too).
    A more rational daily exotic like a 458 Specialle or Scud.
    A guilt free open race car for the street like a built Caterham or Atom.

    Thats it for minimum exotics.
    You can have more enjoyment with this collection actually driven than the King/Shaw/whatever of Brunei and his mothballed hoard.

    Just one. More than that you don't appreciate the first one you bought.

    . “Sometimes”. Unfortunately, I’ve bought cars which turned out to be duds for me. Hence, the search turned out to be more fun than ownership. Then selling (still under ownership) is a pain these days.

    But no doubt, ownership, particularly the driving part, has been the most fun.
