Not your everyday car
Still struggling for that last-minute holiday gift for the person who has everything, a Swiss car builder has made this Mercedes McLaren SLR, which features 900 rubies and enough gold paint to impress. Total price? $11 million.
Customizer, Ueli Aniker team of 35, took a total of 30,000 man-hours to make this his “Red Gold Dream” with $5.5 million in precious metals. Look close at the photo, and you can see the 11 pounds of gold mixed into the 25 coats of red paint. Throughout the gold-leather interior and dashboard, there are 600 rubies — on the light switches, lug nuts on the 14k gold-coated wheels, this car will never go to the car wash without security guards.
