Apparently it's time to ditch the VW GTI.
As we reported last January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the proud owner of a Volkswagen GTI. The guy is worth nearly $30 billion and yet he drives around an unassuming hot hatch. He could buy any car(s) he wants without even making a dent in his bank account. Before the GTI, he previously drove an Acura TSX. But now there’s a new rumor coming from GT Spirit and Jalopnik claiming that Zuckerberg has just put down a deposit for a brand-new, twin-turbo V12 Pagani Huayra.
Just the other day Pagani announced that its first batch of Huayras are on their way to the US. If this rumor does turn out to be true, perhaps Zuckerberg decided to reward himself with something nice for his 30th birthday, which was on May 14. We really can’t think of anything better than a 720 horsepower Huayra for such an occasion. We’ll provide an update if this rumor turns out to be true or not.
