Gold Lamborghini Aventador Roadster a Symbol of Oil Money

Expensive items comes in all shapes and sizes; this one just so happens to come in the shape of a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.

This near-blinding gold vehicle wasn’t on display at a fancy auto show, it was actually seen cruising the streets of Paris during Paris Fashion week, often times stealing the show at the city’s most opulent locations.

This Aventador in the picture above is valued at approximately $6,435,480.00 and can reach 62 mph in less than three seconds with its 6.5-liter V12 engine, and can hit speeds of up to 217 per hour. It was reported that the vehicle had Saudi Arabian license plates, leading some to assume that this Aventador is a symbol of oil money.

While it may not have done much joy riding through the streets of Paris (traffic is ridiculous), it sure got the attention it deserved.

Want to know the surprising thing? This may not be the most expensive gold lambo out there. According to The Daily Mail:

Last year, a model gold Lamborghini Aventador went on display at a showroom in Dubai to celebrate the manufacturer’s 50th birthday.

The gold vehicle had a pricetag of $7.5 million, making it the world’s most expensive model car.

Carved out of a 500-kilogram block of solid gold, the finished model contained 25 kilograms of the precious metal. The model was designed by German mechanical engineer Robert Gülpen and sculpted from the same carbon fibre used to make Formula One cars.
