Mark Zuckerberg, with an estimated net worth of around $64.2 billion dollars, one of the richest men on earth… What do you think he spends his money on?
Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, is arguably one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs. At just 24 years of age he became the world’s youngest billionaire, and his website has now reached over 900 million active users.
So you can imagine how much his net worth is and how he can freely spend it on whatever he want. These are 4 expensive things Zuckerberg spends his fortune:
Palo Alto Home
Kicking off the list with Mark Zuckerberg’s main home, this 5,000 square foot house is surrounded by green gardens and has a swimming pool at the rear. The large kitchen features a built-in computer workstation and the bathroom is covered in marble with the soaking tub sitting in the centre.
The home has a large living room and a special outdoor fireplace where Mark Zuckerberg regularly hosts Facebook parties. For guests there is a separate bathroom and living area for them to relax on overnight stays.
Its thought that Mark Zuckerberg recently purchased 4 other homes around the property as a security buffer.
Mark Zuckerberg regularly makes use of a private jet for business trips, which are paid for by the company. He is often accompanied by family members on the flights and a large security team also follows along.
For personal flights its almost always paid for by Mark himself and for security reasons, the type of jet has never been revealed.
Costing $100 Million Dollars and spread over 700 acres, this massive estate is located on an island in the Hawaiian archipelago. Nicknamed The Garden isle it features dramatic cliffs and amazing views.
The land has been subject to some controversy with many legal battles taking place with local residents. Its understood Mark Zuckerberg built a 6 foot, mile long wall along the property however the lawsuits now appear to have been dropped.
Black Modified 2014 Volkswagen MK6 GTI
Covered in black and looking a little bit normal is this Black Modified 2014 Volkswagen GTI. The car has been maxed out with all the options however we still cant call this a super-car.
The car has a manual transmission, alloy wheels and many other modifications that Zuckerberg chose. The car has a top speed of 238 km/h with a 0-100km acceleration of 6.9 seconds.
Volkswagen were so impressed with his purchase that they sent him a present for his car. The car is thought to have cost around $30,000 dollars.
