Mark Zuckerberg Is Worth ~$20 Billion -- And He Drives This $US30,000 Hatchback

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.

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.

According to a story by t

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.
