What would you drive if you had a few billions in your pocket? A Veyron or an Enzo? What do you think that the richest men on planet drive? If you want to answer Lamborghini of Ferrari, well think again because this is not at all that they drive. Try a 2006 Cadillac DTS or a 15-year-old Dodge Dakota pickup.

Billionaire Warren Buffett, the second richest person in the world, according to the 2007 Forbes list of the wealthiest people and among our roster of five frugal billionaires, recently traded in a six-year-old Lincoln Town Car for a 2006 Cadillac DTS. Granted those are both luxury cars, these traditional American sedans cost a fraction of the price of a Bentley or Rolls-Royce and are frumpy compared to exotic sports cars. “Sometimes, it’s just not practical for a 60- to 70-year-old to squeeze into a Ferrari or Lamborghini,” says Tom Stanley, wealth expert and author of The Millionaire Mind and his yet-to-be-released book, Acting Rich in America.
