Greenwich Tax Rolls Show Tudor's Jones' Taste For Cars

Feb 23 2012 | 5:00am ET

Greenwich, Conn., has almost as many cars as people—thanks in no small part to Paul Tudor Jones.

The Tudor Investment Corp. founder has a whopping 16 automobiles registered in his name, according to a Greenwich Time report that shows that one of every seven cars in Connecticut's hedge fund capital is a BMW or Mercedes Benz.

At least one of the latter belongs to Jones, a $66,000 2011 Mercedes GL450. That's not Jones' most valuable car, according to the town assessment, an honor that belongs to his 2010 Range Rover, valued at $67,000. Jones also owns two Cadillac Escalades.

And that does count the 2008 Maybach registered to Tudor, valued at $230,000.

Jones' estate in Greenwich's waterfront Belle Haven neighborhood has an underground parking garage. "It's supposed to be very strong," Ali Karimi, a personal property appraiser in Greenwich's assessor's office, told Greenwich Time. "Earthquake proof. Nuke-proof."
