If you’ve ever seen a Lamborghini and thought, “it’s just not wild enough for me,” this car is for you.
French car enthusiasts and the Daily Mail newspaper spotted this gold-wrapped Aventador in France on upscale Avenue Montaigne. Predictably, it was sporting a license plate from Saudi Arabia.
That makes sense, considering each year rich Saudis, Emiratis and Qataris ditch the Middle Eastern heat for a few months in cooler Western Europe. Like any well-to-do enthusiasts would, they bring their cars with them, European complaints be damned.
This 690-hp Aventador wears a 666 license plate, which we hope is some sort of comment on greed, sin and the devil, though we doubt it. We also know how much people pay for these special plates, and we’re sure this one wasn’t cheap. The Aventador costs about $400,000 when new, but the Daily Mail estimates that this car could be worth upwards of $6 million if it was real gold plating. Actually, the Daily Mail thinks it is gold plating, but a few of the shots of the car clearly show the characteristics of a vinyl wrap.
You can’t buy taste, as they say. Head over to the Daily Mail for a gallery of the gold Aventador, complete with neighborhood kids shooting pictures and a gouged-up wheel from parking on narrow European streets.
