Would you like to have a luxury car ?
I love complex cars and machines. Nothing makes me happier than driving my car and when I was younger, I was inspired to work out the possibility of buying a Lamborghini. What's more, I used to have a poster of that vehicle when I was in high school .
So I decided to put together a short list of luxury cars from the world's richest entrepreneurs .
I didn't do it to make you feel bad about driving a simple car, but to inspire you to keep fighting for your dreams. To give you a “push” in those days where the obstacles of the entrepreneurial life seem to pile up.
Remember, we all start from different points and it is necessary to know how to save when your company begins to grow. The idea of this list is not that you think you cannot have the same as these millionaires, but that you get inspired to reach a point in your own life where you can do it.
Do you really think there is an insurmountable difference between you and the entrepreneurs on this list? The truth is, no. Bill Gates and Richard Branson worked very hard to build their business empires and get the things they wanted most, including these cars. However, they started from the same point you did. Don't forget that you can do it too.

No list of celebrity luxury cars would be complete without Jay Leno as he owns a huge garage with cars ranging from a 1906 Stanley to an EcoJet. His favorite is a rosewood Mercedes SLR McLaren worth about $ 250,000.
2. Sir Richard Branson – Gibbs Aquada

Can your car cross lakes and canals? Probably not, but Richard Branson's vehicle can. The founder of Virgin Group has an estimated wealth of $ 4.2 billion that he has used to collect eccentric cars, including the Gibbs Aquada amphibious vehicle.
3. Michael Bloomberg – Audi R8

No, you don't need a car to get around a city like New York. However, this former mayor of the Big Apple does have a fancy Audi 8 priced at $ 120,000. It's a shame that the car's ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds is totally useless in a metropolis as collapsed by excess traffic as New York is.
4. Carlos Slim Helú – Bentley Continental Flying Spur

No one expects this Mexican tycoon – who regularly competes with Bill Gates for the position of the world's richest man – to drive an ordinary car, but his mobile predilection really surprises. Your Bentley Continental Flying Spur is not only extremely stylish, it also has great power. The six-liter W12 engine can go from 0 to 60 km / h in just 4.3 seconds. The cost? Only about $ 300,000.
5. Bill Gates – Porsche 959 Coupe

Want another reason why it's good to be rich? How about driving the passage of a federal law so you can drive your luxury car? Microsoft founder's luxury car, a $ 400,000 Porsche 959 Coupe, is so rare that there are only 230 models in the world. Because it is so unique, it does not have a crash test index (hence the need for federal law).
Don't get depressed with this list. Learn how to use your business network and your knowledge to invest and increase your wealth. It all comes down to attitude. Change yours. Start to see this type of luxury not as a possibility of your work, but as an eventuality.
Your own luxury car is waiting for you.
