Cars of the world's richest people

With spots on Forbes' richest people list, these billionaires are going

places. But it turns out their favorite modes of transportation are as

varied as the ways they got all that money in the bank to begin with.

One housewares entrepreneur drives a car that would sell for only about

$1,500, while a certain software mogul could sell his car for $4.4

million. That's enough for four dream houses. Some of these vehicles are

stars on their own, while others are only notable because of the

billionaire behind the wheel. -- By Ashley Lutz
