According to the Forbes Billionaires List, Mexican telecom giant Carlos Slim Helu is the world’s richest man. He drives a Bentley Continental Flying Spur which costs around $315,000.
Reliance India Chairman Mukesh Ambani with a net worth of $22.3 billion is the world’s richest Indian in the Forbes list. He drives one of the most luxurious cars, a Maybach 62 along with a Mercedes S Class and a Mercedes SL500. The Maybach is worth a cool $500,000.
Bill Gates’ Porsche 959 Coupe is one of only 230 in the world. It took a federal law signed by then-president Bill Clinton to allow the billionaire to drive the car because there was no crash-test rating. The price for such a car? $225,000 when new, they now go for well over $400,000.
Mark Zuckerberg is often seen in a black Acura TSX. The young billionaire has among the cheapest of the rides: the car is valued at about $30,000.
Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer is one of the world’s richest men but went for a fairly modest car. He’s seen here with the CEO of Ford, taking possession of the Hybrid Fusion. The car retails for about $19,000–well within the budget for a new family car.
New York’s mayor and financial data mogul Michael Bloomberg drives an Audi R8. The swanky car retails at $120,000 and goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Alice Walton, heiress of the Wal-Mart fortune, is the second-richest woman in the world. But her car of choice is a simple 2006 Ford F-150 King Ranch. The trucks retail at around $40,000. With her DUI arrest last year, it might be better that she stick to inexpensive cars.
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud, member of the Saudi royal family, drives a Rolls-Royce Phantom. The entry level version of the prince’s car costs $246,000, while an upscale version a royal would surely need is a cool $447,000.

Google tycoon Eric Schmidt has the most modest car of all: a Toyota Prius. The environmentally-friendly cars start at just $11,000. But don’t expect it to last–Schmidt has often spoken about the automated cars of the future.
