Billionaire John Kluge Dies Age 96






For a time, Kluge was the richest man in America. In 1989, his $5.2 billion fortune put him at the top of the Forbes 400. Three years later, a well known to us man, Bill Gates, overtook him to claim the title.
Kluge was self-made, and built his Metromedia TV empire from scratch with a $4 million investment. When after a while he sold the company to WorldCom in 2001, it was worth $1.3 billion. However, he wasn’t always as savvy with his investments; his restaurant chains Ponderosa and Bonanza filed for Chapter 11 in 2008.

Ferrari Enzo-  A high Performance Car


Ferrari Enzo $670,000. The Ferrari Enzo, was named after the Ferrari's owner, is a high performance sports car which is well noted for its styling features, of course. The probably best known supercar ever built and is on the list of most expensive cars in the world. The Enzo has a top speed of 217 mph and reaching 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Unfortunately just 400 units were produced and it is currently being sold for over $1,000,000 at auctions. And who wouldn't fall for that car?
