Absurd 24ct Gold Aventador model to sell for £3m

Yes, that's 13 times the price of the real thing...

German model carmaker Robert Wilhelm Gülpen has revealed first details of his latest model. The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 gold 1:8 scale model is estimated to fetch far more than the full scale model's price which stands at a rather affordable £220,000.

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 scale model's body is made from carbon fibre just like the real car. But for Gülpen's version the body is coated in a thin layer of 24 carat gold, thin enough so that the carbon weave is still visible.

It features seats made from 1400 precious stones, as are the rear lights whilst the front headlights eschew LEDs for high quality clear diamonds. In fact, the materials alone value this model at €2 million. Further modifications can be made as per the buyer’s preference.

Gülpen's latest creation will enter the Guinness Book of Records as the most expensive and most precious model car in the world. It is expected to fetch at least £3 million ($4.6 million) with £430,000 ($669,000) of the profit to be donated to charity. Only the absurdly rich need apply...
