Ukraine's Ridiculous Rides, and you’ll never guess who they belong to

Mayor of Kiev, Leonid Chernovetsky is a connoisseur of fine automobiles and apparently just being related to the man has its benefits. Between the two sons and one daughter their garage includes a Maybach, Rolls Royce Phantom and the Mercedes Benz Mclaren SLR,Porsche 911, Spyder and a trio of Rolls Royce Drophead Coupes amongst a few other high end machines.

The women in Chernovetsky’s life are no strangers to controlling incredible amounts of power. It is said that his wife drives the MercedesMcLaren SLR super car with its 5.4 liter supercharged V8 that pumps out 626 HP and will accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 207 MPH. The daughter enjoys her time behind the wheel of this Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder daughter with its 5.0 Liter V10 that makes a screaming 520 HP and will go to 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.3 seconds on its way to hitting a top speed of 195 MPH.

Chernovetsky’s male offspring are no strangers to the finer things in life. Like this Porsche 911 gt by techart covered in a stunning matte gold finish. The 3.6 Liter flat 6 engine has been tuned to produce 630 HP, go from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 215 MPH. Of the three Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe’s the youngest son is most often found in the white version with a 6.75 Liter V12 that makes 453 HP and goes from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.9 seconds.
