Seems that even the ridiculously wealthy can't pass up a good bargain. According to The Wall Street Journal, a seemingly amazing six percent of American Express Centurion "Black Card" holders say they have a Hyundai in their garage. The Centurion is an exclusive card only offered to the utmost wealthiest of people, with the average Black Card holder having $16.3 million in assets and an annual household income of $1.3 million.

For reference, only six percent of Centurion holders own Bentleys. By that logic, you could say that for every Continental or Mulsanne a Black Card holder owns, there's also an Equus or Genesis. Weird, right?

Not surprisingly, Black Card holders commonly flock to the usual host of luxury automakers. BMW accounts for 22 percent of Centurion automobiles, with Mercedes-Benz at 21 percent, Porsche at 15 and Lexus at 11.
