An exorbitant price
The recent news of Elon Musk buying Twitter for a whopping $44 billion made us wonder what else this unthinkable amount of money could buy.
VegasSlotsNews Online listed some of the most jaw-dropping things $44 billion could get you, ranging from 2,352 Bugatti La Voiture Noires to 72 Hawaiian Islands.
Bugatti The Black Car
How many: 2,352
As the most expensive car in the world, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is incredibly exclusive with only nine produced. Costing $18.7 million and boasting a 0-60 speed of 0.2 seconds, only a handful of the world’s most successful people are proud owners of the car.
Elon Musk could have bought an amazing 2,352 Bugatti models with the same money he spent owning Twitter.
How much: 8
One of the UK’s most famous landmarks, Buckingham Palace is home to royalty and consists of five stories and 39 acres of land spread over 828,821 square feet. The impressive size of the palace has its own zip code due to the amount of space it takes up, and even has its own hospital on the grounds. Buckingham Palace is worth $4.9 billion, which means Musk could have bought it eight times over and he still had money to spare!
The Graff Diamonds Hallucination
How much: 800
Designed by renowned watchmaker Laurence Graff, the $55 million Graff Hallucination is the most expensive jewelry watch ever created. The stunning piece features 110 carats of rare, large and colored diamonds set in a platinum bracelet. Amidst the rainbow sea of gemstones sits a tiny quartz dial framed in pink diamonds.
There’s only one, and that might be a bit flamboyant for Musk’s tastes, but he could theoretically have bought 800 of the flashy watches for the price from the social media giant.
The Wynn Las Vegas
How much: 16
The Wynn Las Vegas is one of the largest casinos in Nevada and spans nearly 200,000 square feet. With over 1,800 slot games and 180 table games to choose from, it’s a playground for gambling fans who travel from all over the world to visit. It’s valued at $2.7 billion, meaning Elon Musk could have bought it 16 times for the same amount he invested in Twitter.
Lanai Island in Hawaii
How much: 72
To really put it into perspective, the business mogul could have bought 72 entire islands for the price of Twitter! Lanai Island, known as Pineapple Island, is Hawaii’s sixth largest island famous for its stunning views, outdoor activities, marine life and gourmet restaurants. Valued at 610 million dollars, it is ranked among the most expensive islands in the world.
Hermès Kelly Rose Gold
How much: 22,000
It’s unclear if Musk has a secret fondness for handbags, but if he does, then the Hermes Kelly Rose Gold bag is the best on the market. Designed in collaboration with jewelry and shoe designers Pierre Hardy and Hermes Kelly, the bag is solid rose gold and studded with 1,160 diamonds.
Only 12 of these bags exist, but Musk could have bought one 22,000 times with the price from Twitter.
Price tag: 9
Perhaps Musk might want to feel the sea breeze in his hair as he travels the world in search of his next business venture. Well, if he does, then we definitely have the boat for him. The 100ft History Supreme is the most expensive yacht ever sold. There is only one, and it belongs to an anonymous Malaysian businessman who bought the boat for a staggering $4.8 billion. It is covered in platinum and gold from bow to stern, containing 220,462 pounds of precious metals. The Tesla owner could have brought home nine of those yachts with $44 billion.
Bill Gates’ mega-mansion
How much: 352
Bill Gates’ $125 million mansion ‘Xanadu 2.0,’ is the most expensive celebrity home in the world. It contains famous works of art, a dedicated trampoline room, a salmon stream and golden sand imported from the Caribbean islands. It’s no wonder the jaw-dropping property took the top spot.
As impressive as he is, Elon Musk could have bought 352 amazing mansions from Bill Gates with his $44 billion in Twitter fees.
