Nabil ‘Billy’ Karam Resets Guinness World Record for Largest Collection of Model Cars and Dioramas

In celebration of the 12th annual Guinness World Records Day, Lebanese race car driver and collector Nabil “Billy” Karam has reset his old Guinness World Record for having the largest collection of model cars and dioramas. According to Guinness World Records, Billy’s “collection began largely because he was determined to get back toy cars stolen from him as a boy – an obsession that kept on going.”

Guinness World Records adjudicator Samer Khallouf flew out to Lebanon to recount Nabil “Billy” Karam’s record breaking collection of model cars and dioramas. It has been confirmed that the racing driver owns a staggering 37,777 toy cars which he displays in a privately-owned warehouse in Zouk Mosbeh – 10,000 more items than when he first set the Largest collection of model cars record in 2011. The avid collector also owns the Largest collection of dioramas with 577 unique items depicting many scenes from his racing career, from cherished race wins, to terrifying accidents. (read more)
