Norman Braman

CATEGORY: Billionaires
COMPANY: Braman Enterprises
INDUSTRY: Automobile

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Braman Motors is where many of the Haute 100 members turn to for their luxury rides, such as Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, and the elusive Bugatti, as well as BMWs, Minis, and Cadillacs. Braman himself, who owns some 16 auto dealerships in Florida and Colorado, is an avid art collector. His portfolio of works by Picasso, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol and others is what put him in the billionaire category in late 2008, and the collection is just appreciating in value at an exponential rate—$100 million in 2009 alone.
