The most commonly driven car overall is the Mercedes E class, and the top 10 list of cars driven by pentamillionaires includes the likes of the humble Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, but that's for another discussion.

The only BMWs on the top 10 list of cars driven by pentaillionaires are the 328i at #2 and the BMW X5 at #9 or #10. Audi isn't represented at all. The Mercedes E class holds the #1 spot, although the Mercedes S class isn't among the top 10.
Look at it this way, if pentamillionaires lived like most Americans, they would spend more money on cars then they actually have and then they wouldnt be pentamillionaires anymore would they?
