So this may have been posted before but if not, here it is.

 

A 1:8 scale $4,700,000 Model Lamborghini Aventador. He's a cut from the article. Wish their was a little more on this gem.

 

"This 1:8 version of the Lamborghini Aventador miniature is made from carbon and has gold linings and diamonds encrusted almost everywhere in its handcrafted interior and exterior, making it the world's most expensive car model. Gülpen used the original blueprints of the Italian model to create this masterpiece. After 500 hours of work and with the help of a computer modeling data, the artist developed a perfect miniature model that boasts 1/100 mm tread of solid gold, diamonds on the seats and precious gemstones."

 

Who can top it?  :rolleyes:

My only question...............


WHAT'S THE POINT??????? You could buy the actual car for a fraction of the cost.

Actually... They did the math and figured you could buy a dozen of the real cars. Unbelievably stupid.

omg thats just weird , not to mention the inside with the diamonds (?) just looks terrible ..

pricewise i would love to be neir the buyer so i can laugh at him and make a L on my forehead with my fingers

 

hahahah

 

even if your so welthy that buying this doesnt make you think ... hmmmm <_<  thats expensive its still just :blink: .....

 

on the other hand this opens up a whole new market for some of us !!!! .. just take like a half a year or year to build a perfect replica and sell it for 50.000$ - 100.000$ and well thats not a bad return :lol:  :lol:

and for those type of byer its a bargain :P  :P  :P  :P

Since the auction for this replica was in December 2011, does anyone know if it actually sold for this amount?

Somebody has too much money (and free time).

I'm more impressed by a working Joe who manages to eek a couple box stock kits out between work, kids, bills, and work.

Can't find how much it really went for. All I can find is repeated articles back in 2011. Maybe it never sold.

 

His goal was to be entered into the World Guinness Records for Most Expensive Model, and 2 other titles that escape me. Regardless... I could see $4.7 Million being used for SO MUCH more than a 1:8 scale model car of something that you probably already have parked in your garage.
