It’s always a delight to know the kinds of cars parked in the garage of our favorite celebrities. Obviously, their cars are fancy, but they are nothing compared to the cars of people who control more wealth than they do. Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote is known for his business acumen, but we don’t get to see a lot of his possessions because he leads a quiet life.
For a man who controls so much wealth, it comes as no surprise that Dangote’s car collection consists of the most expensive cars around the world. They include Bentley, Maybach, Mercedes and Bugatti among others.
What Aliko Dangote’s cars look like
1. Bentley Mulsanne - N112 million

The interior of the car has a special four-mode air suspension that creates a fluid sensation when driven across different surfaces. This is the same car recently acquired by celebrity Blogger Linda Ikeji to celebrate the birth of her son.
