Money is the answer to every luxurious lifestyle any human being could ever think about. No wonder the scripture says "money answereth all things." However, money can never guarantee you heaven but when it comes to any worldly materials you desire to acquire, i bet you money will guarantee you 100%. Nothing triggers the increases of human taste than money. when you have money, your taste, your desire or guest to acquire something higher will continue to pop into your mind, and this is a reason why some people who are financially buoyant live above others in everything.
Those who are materially wealthy are known by what they wear, the place they live, the types of houses they built, the vehicle they drive and even the type of Jet they own.
Even though all Jets fly in the air to their various destinations, some jets are designed according to the taste of the owner and that's how their prices also differ. Therefore, here i bring to you 10 most expensive private Jets.
