When we think of movie stars, politicians, investment bankers or just celebrities in general we tend to associate their success with fat wallets and fancy houses. And in most cases that would be a safe bet. Millionaires are often thought of as lavish spenders, splurging on their hearts’ desires. Big houses with empty rooms, private resorts (even islands), clothes, shoes, and arguably the most iconic display of financial success – exotic cars.

If you’ve read an article exploring the driveways and garages of the wealthy before – chances are – you’ve seen your fair share of Ferraris, Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Corvettes. However, as you’re about to learn, not every stinking rich celebrity believes that an imported half-a-million-dollar muscle car is better than your average joe automobile. Believe it or not, many of the more-than-well-to-do celebrities simply choose to drive an inexpensive car. Maybe that’s the secret to being rich, after all the car only helps you move from point A to point B. Below is a list 10 rich celebrities that have realised this fact and stuck with a more humble piece of transportation.

Ingvar Kamprad – Volvo 240

Ingvar-Kamprad---Volvo-240This list absolutely had to start with the one and only founder of Ikea – Ingvar Kamprad. The successful entrepreneur is worth in the neighbourhood of $30 billion (that’s right, billion), and despite his financial independence (to put it lightly) he chose to drive a Volvo. And not some top of the line V8 mind you. No, the thrifty Kamprad chose to drive a very humble Volvo 240 – a car that probably cost him somewhere between $1,500 – $2,000. If he wanted to, Kamprad could empty out his bank account and buy about 15,000 Bugatti Veyrons (each worth ~$2,000,000), but instead he drives this 4-wheeled-wonder. When he isn’t driving, Kamprad can be found taking the city bus from time to time.

Ron Artest – Hyundai Genesis

Ron-Artest---Hyundai-GenesisWhile beating Ingvar Kamprad on frugal cars is impossible for any other celeb, this list must go on. That being said, next we have Ron Artest (legally known as Metta World Peace, but that’s a story for another time), who clearly has some problems, but none of which involve a shortage of cash. Artest is best known for his contribution to the Chicago Bulls and the New York Knicks. It’s estimated that artest is worth somewhere around $20 million, but that doesn’t automatically guarantee a sweet ride. In fact, Artest drives a Hyundai Genesis – a car that he didn’t even purchase. The $35,000 sedan was given to him by comedian George Lopez.

Steve Ballmer – Ford Fusion Hybrid

Steve-Ballmer---Ford-Fusion-HybridSteve Ballmer is the ex-CEO of software giant Microsoft, and currently he owns NBA’s LA Clippers. Ballmer is worth over $21 billion, but that doesn’t really shock anyone considering the man had run a massive tech company, and now owns an NBA team. What does shock, however, is the fact that despite being able to afford literally anything, Ballmer chose a Ford Fusion Hybrid as his primary mode of transportation. Even if Ballmer chose to upgrade everything inside of this car, opting for extras like – higher end trim, top of the line audio equipment and larger rims, the final price would still be under $40,000.
