The Ken Lingenfelter collection, Brighton Michigan


Dec 2010 update: For a video of the garage, that the video owner insists you see on Youtube instead of here (WTF?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMQMgwouKlU&feature=player_embedded

New gallery (Mar 2010) WITHOUT the damn watermarks: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=750371

One of Ken's cousins was John. A red Lingenfelter in the photo at: http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=147630&highlight=ken+lingenfelter is the commemorative edition for the death of John. It has 740 HP! The collection seems to be driven quite a bit as evidenced by current registration. He also just built a new addition out back for another 26 cars to be delivered from another warehouse.
Only 21 Reventons were made, 20 for sale and 1 for the Lamborghini Museum.
His warehouse has three separate rooms with around 40 cars or so in each room. The first one has foreign exotics, the 2nd has Vettes, and the last is muscle cars. More rooms are being built
Ken made his fortune in the title industry. He sold his company for something under 500 million. His dad was a GM exec, he bought LPE after John died.

    When Ken sold the company, it wasn't anywhere near 500 Million...

  4. There are also much more than 25 cars per room.. 124 total at least, so more like 40 per room
