You won’t believe the number of years Mark Zuckerberg could buy a $3.3 million Bugatti Chiron hypercar every day before he runs out of money.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has surpassed Bill Gates to become the fourth richest person in the world. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Zuckerberg’s net worth swelled to $170 billion a few days back thanks to a 22 percent surge in Meta’s stock price, which increased the Meta CEO’s wealth by more than $28 billion. The only individuals richer than Zuckerberg are Bernard Arnault, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk, per the real-time billionaires list. To put his staggering wealth into context, there were only 57 countries with GDPs (gross domestic product) higher than $170 billion in 2022.

With so much money, it’s nearly impossible for Zuckerberg to go broke. But just for the purpose of baffling ourselves, we tried calculating how long it would take for the fourth richest person on this planet to bankrupt himself if he decided to splurge like a madman every single day.

While Zuckerberg is often seen driving around in a Honda, the billionaire also owns a Pagani Huayra, which he bought almost a decade ago for $1.4 million. But what if he suddenly picks up a taste for Bugatti hypercars and buys one every day? I know it’s an absurdly hypothetical thought, but I am sure you’ll be absolutely bewildered when I tell you that it will take 141 years for Zuckerberg to run out of money even if he buys a Chiron worth $3.3 million each day. That comes to around 51,515 Chirons, which is more than 100 times the number of proposed units of the French hypercar and its derivatives.

The tech billionaire owns a Gulfstream G650 private jet and extensively uses it to travel to different places, which has earned him a lot of criticism from climate change activists. Nevertheless, let’s try another absurd calculation to understand the vastness of the Meta CEO’s wealth. Zuckerberg will run out of money in 6.42 years if he decides to buy a shiny new Gulfstream G800 jet every day. By that time, he’ll have a humungous fleet of 2,345 units of the G800.

Mark Zuckerberg is an avid surfer.

While the centibillionaire will never do anything of that sort, he does splurge on a lot of things. His property portfolio worth is reportedly worth $320 million, including his $116 million palatial mansions in California. Furthermore, he bought large swathes of land in Hawaii, which also got some people to call him a colonist. Recently, there were rumors that he’s eyeing a sanctioned oligarch’s abandoned superyacht worth $382 million. Even if he buys the ultra-luxurious yacht, it will hardly put a dent in his net worth.
