Gold Lamborghini Aventador up for sale

The lavish model is currently on display in the Dubai showroom until the end of September.


The Lamborghini Aventador is carved out of a 500kg block of gold for a total weight of 25kg in gold, platinum and precious stones.


The prototype of the model car is currently on display in the Lamborghini showroom in the UAE.


The super model is based on the famous Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, which has seven-speed transmission, and reaches 96.5km/h in 2.9 seconds.


The total value of the precious materials is $2.6m and is expected to increase, making this model car a lucrative investment.


The car will be auctioned to the public. If a buyer wishes to make a bid upfront, Gulpen will accept $7.3m, or a near offer. Otherwise, it will be sold to an auction house for a minimum of $7.5m.


$650,000 of the sale price will be reserved for charity.


Gulpen has been creating luxury car models from precious metals and stones for the past 12 years at his company RGE Robert Gulpen Engineering.


There are 700 diamonds encrusted on each seat inside the car. The LED lights are framed with the highest quality clear diamonds. The total value of the precious stones used is $1.4m.


Wrapped around the carbon-fibers of the car is a 1/1000mm thin thread of solid gold which is very difficult to achieve and emphasizes exclusivity.


“We use the prototype to market the real car model and if a buyer shows interest and arranges a deal, then the real car model will be made and customized to suit the buyer’s desires,” said Gulpen.


According to Gulpen, it took one-and-a-half years and a team of ten engineers to make the model.


RGE have also produced super models for companies such as Rolls-Royce and Mercedes- Benz.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
