So, the question is: “How do you make the Bugatti Veyron – as the most expensive production car in the world – even more costly?” The answer by Stuart Hughes is simple: “By miniaturizing it and forming it completely out of 24 karat gold and 7.2 carats worth of diamonds”.
A new model version with flashy sparkle has been added in an extreme manner to the already impressive Bugatti Veyron car, boasting attributes of 250 mph, 1,000 horse-power, and 16 cylinders. This vehicle alone would set someone back a couple of million. However, one can now put that money towards something even more impressive and exclusive: a 1:18-scale, 24-karat gold model of the Veyron, complete with diamonds.
For an absolutely brand new Veyron, the price is set expectedly at around $2 million (£1.35 million). However, the limited edition is a 3-model Veyron designed by Robert Gulpen of Munich and Stuart Hughes of Liverpool and this will set one back by approximately $2.93 million, or £1.98 million.
For this high figure, the buyer receives not only the weighty, 24-karat model, but also 7.2 carats worth of diamonds alongside this that are used to accent the grille and other feature parts of the car.
The bespoke creation also comes accompanied with a certification of authenticity, glass house and aluminum case, and even includes photo documentation of the manufacturing process. This model car is limited to just 3 units as it is such an exclusive designer’s creation. [Stuart Hughes via Born Rich]
