What cars does/did Mr Lee Kun Hee (former chairman of Samsung) have in his collection?

Ferrari GTO 5095 was bought by him in 1996 and sold last year to England and has just been sold (28M USD apparently) privately to a British 'property magnate'.

Bugatti 35B 4913 was just sold at auction for £2½M had also been sold by him recently.

Given the exceptional nature of these cars I assume he might have had a few other interesting cars, and I was wondering what they were and what has happened to them?

One example being the ex-Count Donhoff/Colin Crabbe Auto-Union D-type that apparently resides in a warehouse near Frankfurt...

Count Donhoff, now there's a name with a few stories attached to it!

250 GTO The Samsung fellow sold it to a North English collector in 06 who sold it in 08 to a Suffolk collector who got out of the House selling game at the correct time!
