The Russians have taken conspicuous consumption to a new level over the last few years and one wealthy Muscovite even thought it that it was a good idea to cover his Porsche with gold.
Covered in 40 pounds of pure gold (beaten 22 carat gold), this Porsche 911 may look dazzling but it’s a fair bet to say that it will no longer be doing 0-60 in under five seconds.
While it is beyond doubt that this turbo charged sports car looks even flashier than before, it is surely quite a lot of responsibility having an already expensive car which has been covered in gold.
You can imagine hoards of pigeons queuing up to shit on this gold plated wonder, as well as plenty of jealous motorists in old beaten up cars ‘accidentally’ banging into it.
The gold plated Porsche was always going to attract plenty of attention, some of that attention of the welcome female variety, and some of it of the unwelcome criminal variety. In fact the car was actually stolen and found again some a short time later. Very mysterious.
It is not just the outside of this Porsche which has been covered in gold but also the steering wheel, the alloys and other interior features. To top it all off the gold plated Porsche has a cool flowery design which has been etched into the gold. However, as one Russian man commented on this unusual car, – “Good taste can not be bought.”
