Ever wonder where the jewelry that you send to those “Cash for Gold” businesses goes?
Voila. A gold Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 has been spotted around the more ritzy, exclusive part of Paris, France. Each body panel is gold-plated, bringing the value of the car up from a mere $400,000 or so, to over $5.5 million USD, according to the UK’s Daily Mail.
This gold Lamborghini Aventador appears to be from Saudi Arabia, and wears a license plate with the first three digits reading “666.” The world’s most extravagant supercars quite often come from Middle-Eastern countries, and end up being spotted in major European cities around the summer months.
The gold Lamborghini Aventador retains the regular, non-gold car’s 6.5 liter V12 making about 690 horsepower, and even features gold-plating on the brake calipers. It recalls a 1:8 scale Aventador model car shown in Dubai last year to celebrate the marque’s 50th anniversary, with super-thin gold strands wrapped around the carbon fibers making up the body, wheels cast from solid gold and platinum, and diamond headlights and a number of other precious stones.
That 1:8 scale model was valued at an astonishing $7.5 million US. Looks like the owner of this life-size example gold Lamborghini Aventador still has some work to do.
