Gold-plated Lamborghini Goes From 0-100 In 2.9 SecondsBy: Amanda Crum - September 17, 2013
A new Lamborghini built for a king has been unveiled in Dubai, and it contains $2.64 million worth of gold and gemstones.
The luxury car on display is just a prototype, but it represents the most expensive car in the world. The full-sized models will boast a V-12 engine that will take the driver from 0-100 mph in just under three seconds, though the display model doesn’t have much under the hood in order to allow buyers to customize it. The car will be auctioned off at $7.5 million, with $650,000 of that going to charity. It is currently behind bullet-proof glass that garnered a Guinness World Record, along with two others: most expensive model car, and the most luxurious logo.
According to Lamborghini, the car “is indeed a very sound investment in precious metals and gemstones, with enormous potential for this value to increase significantly”.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP-700-4 has yet to receive any interested buyers.
