20 Most Outrageous Purchases Around The World
The Sultan Of Brunei
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the outlandish purchases of the Sultan of Brunei. He has a gold-plated aircraft with gold plated furniture and solid gold wash basins. He also owns smaller planes, choppers, 7,000 luxury cars, mosques with diamonds and gold, and a palace with nearly 2000 rooms. A single hide-and-seek game could last for months in a place like that. Price tag: Unfathomable.
Taking It Up A Notch
A while back, Jay-Z ditched his beloved brand of champagne, Cristal. His new champs of choice, you wonder? Armand de Brignac, one of the most expensive and exclusive in the world. Jay-Z purchased a few bottles for a big celebration and it ran him $250,000. For a few bottles, that is.

Nicolas Cage has always had a penchant for the odd and extravagant. There was the fleet of cars, the not one, but two Bavarian castles, the jet, the 15 homes, the… you get the picture.

One man’s fortune is another man’s change.
Boys and Their Toys
