The world’s richest man started the new year richer, with Tesla founder Elon Mask adding $32.6 billion to his net worth bringing his fortune to $304.2 billion.

Musk’s windfall once again took his worth over the $300 billion mark that he briefly passed in November, becoming the first person to ever do so.

According to Forbes, the controversial social-media savvy billionaire – who is also the founder behind the commercial space enterprise SpaceX – remained at the top of the world’s rich list going into the new year.

In second place and $103.6 billion behind Musk is Bernard Arnault, the CEO of French fashion empire LVMH. Amazon founder and former-CEO Jeff Bezos sits in third place, Forbes said.
