Top 10 Celebrities That Drive Ridiculously Cheap Cars
When we think of movie stars, politicians, investment bankers or just celebrities
in general we tend to associate their success with fat wallets and fancy houses.
And in most cases that would be a safe bet. Millionaires are often thought of as lavish spenders, splurging on their hearts’ desires. Big houses with empty rooms, private resorts (even islands), clothes, shoes, and arguably the most iconic display of financial success – exotic cars.
If you’ve read an article exploring the driveways and garages of the wealthy before – chances are – you’ve seen your fair share of Ferraris, Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Corvettes. However, as you’re about to learn, not every stinking rich celebrity believes that an imported half-a-million-dollar muscle car is better than your average joe automobile. Believe it or not, many of the more-than-well-to-do celebrities simply choose to drive an inexpensive car.
Maybe that’s the secret to being rich, after all the car only helps you move from point A to point B. Below is a list 10 rich celebrities that have realised this fact and stuck with a more humble piece of transportation.
Ingvar Kamprad – Volvo 240
This list absolutely had to start with the one and only founder of Ikea – Ingvar Kamprad. The successful entrepreneur is worth in the neighbourhood of $30 billion (that’s right, billion), and despite his financial independence (to put it lightly) he chose to drive a Volvo. And not some top of the line V8 mind you.
No, the thrifty Kamprad chose to drive a very humble Volvo 240 – a car that probably cost him somewhere between $1,500 – $2,000. If he wanted to, Kamprad could empty out his bank account and buy about 15,000 Bugatti Veyrons (each worth ~$2,000,000), but instead he drives this 4-wheeled-wonder. When he isn’t driving, Kamprad can be found taking the city bus from time to time.
