Illustration for article titled 142nd Richest Man In World Doesnt Do Coffee Tables, Parks Mercedes SLR in Living Room

If you're Eike Batista, the Brazilian steel, gold and oil tycoon gunning for Bill Gates' spot on the world's richest list, do you just drop some kind of fancy art or an Aston Martin love seat in your living room? Hell no. You park a Mercedes McLaren SLR in the living room as a display of obnoxious wealth. We're assuming he has it parked right next to the gilded unicorn and diamond-plated original Venus di Milo. Note also that this is the difference between new, douchey money, and real, "I can own your soul" money. [AbyssAndApex]
