Previous story: With $320 million you could buy your closest friends a $2.6 million Bugatti Veyron Supersport car, one of the most expensive cars in world, or one of Germany’s $1.4 million Maybach Landaulet sedans, something a little roomier.
Or maybe you’re looking for a bigger place to live. The 35,000-square-foot Fleur de Lys mansion in Beverly Hills is still on the market for $125 million. It’s the most expensive home for sale in the U.S., according to Forbes. Or if you’re looking for something a little smaller and closer to home, former Hawks coach Joe Johnson’s 13,822-square-foot Old Londberry community home in northwest Atlanta is for sale for a mere $4.7 million.
Maybe you’re the Warren Buffett type, whose main goal is not conspicuous consumption, but rather to let your money work for you by investing in stocks and bonds. By the way, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway stock was selling for around $127,198 a share on Wednesday.
Whatever your plans, you’ll have plenty to work with if you hit Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot. It will be the fourth-largest in Powerball history.
Powerball is played in 42 states, including the District of Columbia. Tickets cost $2 for a single play for one drawing. The drawing is held at 10:59 p.m.
