This is what you can buy when you're worth 23 billion dollars.

Despite being a double-digit billionaire, Kamprad also still flies economy class and avoids luxury hotels. In fact, in his self-scribed 1976 Bible, A Furniture Dealer's Testament, Kamprad decries that IKEA people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels. Indeed, Ingvar Kamprad practices what he preaches.
pretty cool that he actually does do the stuff he "preaches". also cool to see the other cars as well.. you'd expect to see ferrari's and such, nope, most flash car on there is the Prince's Rolls... and the guys bently. good 'ol bill needs to upgrade that 911, and i seriously hope that isn't the colour he has if it is this is not goooooddddd

None of them have very impressive cars, just paul allen's 959. If I am every a millionaire, I could still drive a volvo as my DD, just not that old or ugly.

You guys can't really be calling Bill Gates a "cheap bastard"
Considering this guy donates billions of dollars to charities.

first of all its one thing to be simplistic which means not have a pink porsch with 29 inch rims and a $10, 000 sound system...but cmon a 15 year old car...why doesn't he just take a pettle bike to work...at least buy something thats confortable...doesn't have to be a M3 or a ferrair or anything complicated as some seem to feel...but perhaps a nice 5 series or whatever...i think 50, 000 dollars falls out of there pockets daily...its not going to dent a 18 billion dollar bank account..
