Default Top 10 Cars driven by Billionairs

You are thinking, Enzos, Carrera GTs, Veyron or something extraordinary but you will shocked when you see this..Only 2 people out of the 10 are driving something i would consider ok...all others...

Top 10 Cars driven by Billionairs(Source:MSN)

This is interesting about Gates porsche:

Quote:
Now, after waiting some 10 years, Gates can finally enjoy his other favorite Porsche: a rare (1 of 230) 1988 Porsche 959 Coupe. In fact, due to the 959's questionable emissions and unknown crash ratings, it took a federal law signed by President Clinton for Bill Gates to legally drive his 959 on American roads. Rumour has it that Bill Gates and Paul Allen employed Microsoft engineers to write a computer program that could simulate the 959's crashworthiness, which helped in the bill's passage

The Funniest thing is that 3 of the 10 drive SUVS and shockingly no beemers, no tri star, not even the bull or horse. Boy are they some serious N.E.R.D.S

IF you read Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud's car collection, he has two Daewoo Matiz's parked next to his Rolls Royce...reason - He has a share in Daewoo. Thank God.

i think they have used pics from different websites, rather than actual shots, and i guess they though gateway of india looked very royal, so it would be good idea to show the phantom with it
