"World's Most Expensive Toy Car"


Recommended Posts

I don't understand why she's so popular.

 

As for the model Rolls. Meh. I mean, it's pretty cool, but...

I don't get it either.

 

Maybe it's just one of those days where I'm underwhelmed with everything.

If you can afford an SUV that starts at $350,000, then buying a $40,000 replica is probably an after thought, like most of us buying a nice office chair or fancy swing arm amp for the model bench.

most people who buy a Cullinan, cant afford one, they shouldn't be buying a $40,000 toy, most people who could afford a Cullinan, are driving 10 year old BMW X5's.

Sorry, that one's a reject. Check out the sloppy fit on the right side doors. I would expect better on a low price Japanese car and I could buy a 1:1 for less.

For $40k, I’d have expected the hood ornament to hide just like the real thing too.

Same here.

She must know someone or something. She gets access to some pretty exotic rides.

This is when you know you just have to much money. 

More dollars than sense.

Or 3 year Toyotas or even Dodge caravans.

if you own a Rolls Royce why would you spend 40,000 on a toy  🧸.  That would feed a lot of people…

You don't know how the wealthy elite thinks.

Check out any copy of People magazine for examples.

Hey man, don't worry. If a certain element get their way, the wealthy who MADE their own money will be taxed out of existence.

There's a type of personality who, when asked if they'd prefer to live in a society where SOME people were rich but nobody ever starved, or in a society where EVERYONE was so poor they had to eat bugs, they choose the latter in the name of "equity". These people are called "useful idiots".

Their overlords, on the other hand, will still have the Rollers and champagne and caviar and private jets. They just won't have actually EARNED any of it.

I guess if your promo is branded rolls royce it'll have a price to match.

By definition of promo, shouldn't they be giving them away to entice buyers? 😃

Reminds me of the Fabergé eggs that royalty had craftsmen produce.  Yea it's impressive, but it's like having a toy you can't play with.  I would like to have some of the skills to create a better model, but look how many of those eggs are no longer existing.  Final opinion, if you can afford the real deal, what's the point of having a model of it?  My two cents (now $2, don't get me going).

I think if you're serious about cars, or car models, and you had $40K to spend, then you'd be better off heading to Amalgam...

You could have three or four of these for the money:

https://www.amalgamcollection.com/collections/1-8-scale

GT-40, 250SWB Moss Goodwood TT 61, E Type Series 1 and DB4GT Zagato or a gimmick-laden Cullinan?

 

best,

M.

Sorry Faust.
