Remember that test we all had to take back in high school that was supposed to let you know what job you might be well-suited for one day? If you were good at English, maybe you would be a journalist or a teacher. If you were good at math, maybe you would be a banker or an engineer.

I don't remember "personal Ferrari shopper" being anywhere on that list. And it's too bad, because the Ferrari guru we met seems to have tons of fun traveling the world spending other people's money. While shooting "Secret Lives of the Super Rich," we met these five people with the coolest jobs ever!

No. 5—the personal Ferrari shopper

CNBC

Name: Marcel Massini

Job Description: traveling the world to inspect and buy multimillion dollar classic Ferraris for clients

Where he works: just outside of Zurich, Switzerland

Massini's typical work day has him lifting the hoods and kicking (very gently) the wheels of the most expensive Ferraris ever built. And if he likes what he sees, he can pull the trigger shell out multimillions on a super rare super car.

What can be bad about Ferrari shopping? Massini said, "If you are too tight with the money, it's no real fun."

The super rich give Massini millions of dollars, euros or pounds to do their shopping because he's one of the top Ferrari experts around and because he can spot a real bargain. Massini told us bringing home a classic Ferrari for just over $1 million is, "almost a steal."

No. 4—the megaparty guy

Image Source: Colin Cowie Celebrations

Name: Colin Cowie

Job Description: throwing megaparties so big they're better described as "events."

Where he works: Colin Cowie is based in New York

Colin Cowie can throw a party for just about anything, but he specializes in parties for celebrities (big celebrities like Oprah and Tom Cruise, ever heard of them?) and he loves throwing super rich weddings.

CNBC followed Cowie as he threw not one, not two, but three fabulous weddings for his Playboy playmate client Dalene Kurtis and Mercedes dealer Fletcher Jones.

But even Cowie admits, "I only get them down the aisle." Sadly, shortly after their third wedding, at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Playboy playmate and her hubby have gone their separate ways.

No. 3—the private jet bling specialist

CNBC

Name: Eric Roth

Job Description: customizing private jet interiors for some of the richest people on the planet

Where he works: International Jet Interiors, Roth's company, is in Ronkonkoma, N.Y.

Eric Roth's super rich job makes flying first class seem dirt cheap.

Roth does extreme makeovers on private jets, his clients are member of the most ultra-exclusive mile-high-club around. As president of International Jet Interiors, Roth takes the prized-possession of millionaires and billionaires and rips them apart ... replacing ugly interiors with super rich bling.

Roth's clients range from Hollywood royalty to Middle Eastern sheiks. And whether you're looking for a toilet seat covered in alligator skin, 24-karat gold fixtures, or a million dollar movie theater in your jet, Roth has you covered.

No. 2—the billionaires' toymaker

CNBC

Name: Henk de Vries

Job Description: designing and building insane megayachts for billionaires

Where he works: Feadship yachts is located just outside Amsterdam in Aalsmeer, Netherlands

Vries' super rich job is CEO of Feadship, one of the most exclusive superyacht makers in existence. From Steve Jobs to Larry Ellison his uber-wealthy clients have been some of the richest people alive, and they all enjoy a pleasure cruise.

Vries matter of factly told CNBC, "If you have half a billion dollars you can comfortably buy a Feadship."

No. 1—the Lambo dealer

CNBC

Name: Brett David

Job Description: running the top Lamborghini dealership in the U.S.

Where he works: David's dealership, Prestige Imports, is in Miami

Brett David has no clue what it feels like to have a miserable commute to work, because he commutes to work (if you can call it "work") in a gold covered Lamborghini. We couldn't tell if David was trying to torture us when he casually revealed, "I drive it everyday, and it's a blast."

The 20-something runs the top Lambo dealership in the country. David told CNBC he's moved more than $2 billion in super cars and he even sold his first Lamborghini to super star rapper, Missy Elliott.
