Our fascination with the super-wealthy extends to the minutiae of their lives, even down to the cars in their driveways (or multi-car garages or underground bunkers, as the case may be). We're looking for clues to what makes these people tick, or perhaps confirmation of our own preconceived notions. It's no surprise that that Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim Helu, who Forbes identifies as the world's richest man, drives a Bentley Continental Flying Spur, or that the flashy Larry Ellison, co-founder and CEO of Oracle, zips through streets in a McLaren F1. But who would figure that the newest business 2.0 billionaire Mark Zuckerburg gets around Palo Alto in an Acura TSX? Check out the list of the fifteen world's richest people and their whips in the gallery below. via: Yahoo
