The CEO of Tesla, Bernard Arnault, of France, has formally surpassed Musk to claim the title of world’s richest billionaire. With a $211 billion fortune, the 74-year-old engineer tops Forbes’ list of billionaires for 2023, overtaking Elon Musk, who was first last year and is now in second place, by $31 billion.

When the Frenchman’s net worth was $3.1 billion in 1997, he first appeared on Forbes’ list of the wealthiest individuals. By 2005, he had entered the top 20 richest persons (worth $17 billion), and by 2011, he had climbed to the fourth position in the world (worth $41 billion).
