Mark Zuckerberg may be one of the richest people in the world, but his ride is as low key as his signature hoodies. The Facebook CEO is rarely seen behind the wheel of anything flashier than an Acura TSX. Now that he’s got some fresh cash in his pocket, we’d like to make a few suggestions on how to roll.
Steve Jobs drove a Mercedes-Benz SL, and with a new Mbrace2 infotainment system featuring Facebook integration the 2013 version of the sleek roadster seems tailor-made for the new king of Silicon Valley.
Then again, the Cadillac DTS is good enough for uber-billionaire Warren Buffett, so its upcoming replacement, the XTS, might do nicely for Zuckerberg. He won’t be able to update his status via the car, but its CUE infotainment system is about as high-tech as it gets with a tablet-style swipeable touchscreen and cloud-connected apps.
Kevin Flynn is still Hollywood’s greatest computer programmer, and just like the “Tron” character entered the virtual world, his Lightcycle is now available in the real world for $60,000 thanks to Parker Brothers Choppers.
Of course, with enough money bankroll a nation, Zuckerberg might want to indulge himself while protecting his vital assets with a gold-coated replica of the Latvian-made Dartz armored car driven by His Excellency Admiral General Aladeen in the film “The Dictator.” Heck, for just $500,000 a pop he can buy all ten that will be made.
What shouldn't he?
