Take one Bunnings Warehouse, remove all horticulture and fill with 400 exotic cars from a LeFerrari and F40 to a Porsche Carrera GT to a Lamborghini Muira to a Jaguar XJ220.
That is exactly what one millionaire has done to create the Gosford Classic Car Museum on the Central Coast of New South Wales, about an hour’s drive north of Sydney.
MOTOR visited the museum – open Wednesday to Sunday, 9am till 5pm, with $20 adult entry – and found not only high-priced exotics filled the halls, but everything from Aussie HSVs to (we’re not joking) Communist-era Skodas to 1960s American muscle cars and even a DMC DeLorean everyone can sit in and pretend to be Marty McFly.
But here are our top eight collections…
1. Porsche Carrera GT
2004 V10 manual hypercar one of only 1270 produced, none for Oz
2. Ferrari LaFerrari, F40, F50
A trio of Maranello flagships from 2015, 1996 and 1989 side by side
3. Jaguar XJ220
Only 271 made, the 3.5L twin-turbo V6 manual infamously couldn’t reach 220mph
4. Twiggy’s Lamborghini Muira
Supermodel Twiggy’s very own lime green Muira arguably prettiest Lambo ever
5. Lancia Delta Integrale, Toyota Celica GT4

Best of Straya side by side, from Clayton in 1988, 1996 and 2009
7. Nissan GT-R R32 and R35
Immaculate examples of the 1990 and 2007 Skyline coupe breed
