You won't believe how many years Mark Zuckerberg could buy a $3.3 million Bugatti Chiron hypercar every day before he runs out of money...
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has surpassed Bill Gates to become the fourth richest person in the world. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Zuckerberg's net worth recently surged to $170 billion thanks to a 22 percent jump in Meta's stock price, boosting the executive's wealth by over $28 billion. The only individuals richer than Zuckerberg are Bernard Arnault, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk, according to the real-time billionaires list. To put his massive wealth into context, only 57 countries had a GDP (gross domestic product) higher than $170 billion in 2022.
With so much money, it's nearly impossible for Zuckerberg to go broke. Just for fun, we tried to calculate how long it would take for the fourth richest person on the planet to go bankrupt if he spent his money in incredible amounts every day.
While Zuckerberg is often seen driving a Honda, the billionaire also owns a Pagani Huayra, which he bought almost a decade ago for $1.4 million. But what if he suddenly develops a taste for Bugatti hypercars and starts buying one every day? We know it's an absurdly hypothetical scenario, but we're sure you'll be completely amazed when we tell you that it would take Zuckerberg 141 years to spend all his money even if he buys a Chiron worth $3.3 million every day. That's around 51,515 Chiron models, which is more than 100 times the number of proposed units of the French hypercar and its derivatives.
The tech billionaire owns a Gulfstream G650 private jet and extensively uses it for travel to various places, which has earned him much criticism from climate change activists. Nevertheless, let's make another absurd calculation to understand the enormity of the Meta CEO's wealth. Zuckerberg would run out of money in 6.42 years if he decides to buy a shiny new Gulfstream G800 jet every day. By that time, he'll have a huge fleet of 2,345 units of the G800.
While the centibillionaire will never do anything of the sort, he certainly spends his money on many things. The reported value of his property portfolio is $320 million, including his $116 million palatial mansions in California. Furthermore, he bought large swathes of land in Hawaii, which led some people to call him a colonizer. Recently, there were rumors that he wants to buy a sanctioned oligarch's abandoned superyacht worth $382 million. Even if he buys the ultra-luxurious yacht, it will hardly make a dent in his net worth.
