A new episode of "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" airs on Tuesday, April 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The $200,000 Lamborghini Huracan and the $500,000 Aventador are all-wheel drive vehicles and handle really well in the snow.
Even the most secure safe in the world can be broken into with a blowtorch in only 90 minutes, says Greg Simonian, president of Westime, a company that sells high-end watches and safes.
The price for an armored version of most cars is double what you would pay at a dealership.

Even the richest towns in the world have a "right side of the tracks. " In Aspen, Colorado, it's on Red Mountain, which is also known as "Billionaire's Mountain, " where the most expensive home sells for $65 million.
It's easier to sell a car worth $1 million than it is to sell one worth $100,000, says Elliot Cuker, a car dealer who finds rare and classic automobiles for wealthy buyers all over the world.
Many of the most expensive houses in the world sit empty. Some of them are the vacation homes of the super rich, others were built on speculation and are waiting a wealthy buyer.

These properties are only for super-rich eyes. If you want a showing at some megamansions on the market, you might have to submit to a financial review of your assets first.
Half of all Ferraris are red. And many use a paint called Rosso corsa, or "racing red. "
Every Ferrari engine has the same sound—and it's patented.
