How Far Does a Dollar Go? Rumored cost of Air (no. 58): Nearly $905 million. Or for the same amount you could buy: A Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (world’s most expensive car) for every single player in the NBA. A Gulfstream G550 for every starter in the Major League Baseball All Star game. The 4-year education costs of every single student currently enrolled at Rice University, plus the most expensive piece of residential real estate in the U.S., a $100 million mansion in Los Altos, California. A nine-night stay in the most expensive hotel room in the U.S. (the penthouse suite at the Four Seasons NY) for every single active duty navy SEAL. The Boston Red Sox.
