A hefty price tag

The recent news of Elon Musk buying Twitter for a whopping $44bn got us wondering what else the unthinkable amount of money could buy.

VegasSlotsOnline News has pulled together a list of some of the most mind-boggling things that $44bn could get you, ranging all the way from 2,352 Bugatti La Voiture Noires to 72 Hawaiian islands.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Price Tag: $18.7m

How many: 2,352

As the most expensive car in the world, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is incredibly exclusive with only nine ever produced. Costing $18.7m and boasting a 0-to-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 astonishing 2,352 models of the Bugatti with the same cash he spent becoming the owner of Twitter.

Buckingham Palace

Price Tag: $4.9bn

How many: 8

Buckingham Palace, one of the most famous landmarks in the UK, 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 very own postcode due to the amount of space it takes up, even boasting its own hospital on the grounds. Buckingham Palace is worth $4.9bn, which means Musk could have actually bought it eight times over and still had cash to spare!

Graff Diamonds’ The Hallucination

Price Tage: $55m

How many: 800

The brainchild of famed watchmaker Laurence Graff, the $55m Graff Hallucination is the most expensive jewelry watch ever created. The stunning piece features 110 carats of rare, large, and colorful diamonds set into a bracelet of platinum. In the middle of the rainbow sea of gems is a tiny quartz dial framed by pink diamonds.

There’s only one in existence, and it’s perhaps a little flamboyant for Musk’s tastes, but he could have theoretically bought 800 of the showy timepieces for the cost of the social media giant.

The Wynn Las Vegas

Price Tag: $2.7bn

How many: 16

The Wynn Las Vegas is one of the biggest casinos in Nevada and spans almost 200,000 square feet. With over 1,800 slot games and 180 table games to choose from, it is a playground for gambling fans who travel from across the world to visit. It is valued at $2.7bn, meaning Elon Musk could have bought it 16 times for the same amount he invested into Twitter.

Lanai Island in Hawaii

Price Tag: $610m

How many: 72

To really put things into perspective, the business mogul could have bought 72 entire islands for the price of Twitter! Lanai Island, known as Pineapple Island, is the sixth-largest Hawaiian island famous for its stunning views, outdoor activities, marine life, and fine-dining restaurants. Valued at $610m, it is ranked as one of the most expensive islands in the entire world.

Hermes Kelly Rose Gold

Price Tag: $2m

How many: 22,000

It’s unclear whether Musk has a secret penchant for handbags, but if he does then the Hermes Kelly Rose Gold Bag is the best out there. Designed in collaboration with jewelry and shoe designer Pierre Hardy and Hermes Kelly, the bag is made of solid rose gold and dotted with 1,160 diamonds.

Only 12 of these bags are in existence, but Musk could have bought one 22,000 times over with the cost of Twitter.

History Supreme yachts

Price Tag: $4.8bn

Perhaps Musk might want to feel the sea breeze through his hair as he travels around the world looking for his next business venture. Well, if he does, then we definitely have the boat for him.

It’s covered in platinum and gold from bow to stern, packing an eye-watering 220,462 pounds of precious metals. The Tesla owner could have taken home nine of these yachts with $44bn.

Bill Gates’ Mega-Mansion

Bill Gates’ $125m mansion, Xanadu 2.0,’ is the world’s most expensive celebrity home. It contains famous artworks, a dedicated trampoline room, a salmon stream, and golden sand imported from Caribbean islands. It’s no wonder the breathtaking property took the top spot.

As impressive as it is, Elon Musk could have purchased an astonishing 352 of Bill Gates’ mansions with his $44bn Twitter fee.
