Big Money Cars
Many of us dream of getting rich and buying a super expensive car such as a Koenigsegg Regera (which costs $1.9 million), or an Aston Martin Valkyrie (a $3 million dream machine). Surprisingly, many of the richest individuals don’t share this sentiment. Here are four Tech billionaires with surprisingly modest rides.
Dustin Moskovitz – Facebook
Mark Zuckerberg recently bought a Pagani Huayra (with a starting cost at $1.3 million). However, fellow Facebook co-founder, Dustin Moskovitz, drives a Volkswagen R32 Hatchback, which is worth around $25,000. His net worth is more than $13.5 billion.
Steve Ballmer – Microsoft
Former Microsoft CEO, and owner of the LA Clippers, Steve Ballmer, drives a very modest Ford Fusion Hybrid. The car comes with Ford Sync, which was developed by Microsoft. Ballmer is worth around $32.7 billion and is number 32 on the Forbes 400 list.
Jeff Bezos – Amazon
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, drives a 1996 Honda Accord. The car is worth around $4,000. He attributes his humble beginnings as one of the reasons for his massive success and he tries to stay connected with that part of his life. Bezos has a net worth of $85 billion.
Travis Kalanick – Uber
Founder of Uber, Travis Kalanick, has a net worth of $6.3 billion. How much is his car worth? Zero dollars. That’s because he doesn’t use a car. He gets around using Uber – which makes sense if you think about it. What better way to know your product than by using it yourself.
