It’s a stretch to say celebrities are “just like us.” However, some of the world’s richest and most famous people drive affordable, low-key cars. Whether they genuinely shun fancy things or want to blend in with the rest of the community, there is something endearing about seeing a millionaire — sometimes, a billionaire — driving the same car as your sister or dad.
If you are not paying attention, you may miss seeing your favorite movie star pull into the mall in a Toyota hybrid or Volkswagen. How boring is that? These celebrities may not lead lifestyles anything like the average person, but their driving experiences are guaranteed to be the same. Here are 10 very wealthy celebrities who drive humble cars.
Warren Buffett’s Cadillac 2006 DTS
There aren’t many folks who top Warren Buffett in the “wealthy” department, but the man worth over $60 billion leads a frugal lifestyle. He doesn’t have a fancy home or the other things your average millionaires flaunt. The Oracle of Omaha takes the same approach to cars. Buffett drove his 2006 Cadillac DTS (base price: $41,195) for some eight years before he upgraded to an XTS in 2014.
When he auctioned off the DTS for $122,500 — he donated it to charity, of course — Buffett did not splurge for anything special. His new Cadillac XTS also started around $45,000 when he bought it. He keeps it simple.
