Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is worth about $US20 billion.
If I were worth $US20 billion, my family would own, at the very least, two cars — a four-door and a sports car.
Probably, the four door would be a fully-loaded $US120,000 Tesla Model S. It’s an electric car, but it drives as fast and corners as well as a gas-powered super car.
This is what a Tesla Model S looks like:
My two door would probably be a conventional gas-powered super car. Maybe a Ferarri? In red?
I’d also consider a Bugatti Veyron, which is powered by two V8 engines and costs $US1.3 million — a bargain at just 0.0065% of my hypothetical net worth.
This is what a Bugatti Veyron looks like:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is not like me.
The approximate price difference between the $US1.3 million Bugatti Veyron I would own if I had his money, and the car he actually owns is…$1.3 million.
Specifically, he drives a black Volkswagen GTI with a manual transmission.
Maxed-out with all the options, including cheesy floormats, a 2014 Volkswagen GTI with a manual transmission costs $US30,415.

Mark Zuckerberg — worth $US20 billion — drives a four-door hatchback to work.
