Why Buy a Real Car When You Can Buy a Model Lamborghini for $4.7 Million?
September 14th, 2011
I guess it’s true that money can buy almost everything but happiness. You can buy a $92,000 frog-inspired watch, a bejeweled pen that’s priced at close to a million, and an 11-foot iOS dock with a price tag of around half a million dollars.
But if you’ve got some serious money to blow, then you might want to check out this model Lamborghini Aventador that’s priced at at a cool $4.7 million. That’s no typo; this model car retails millions more than what the actual car will cost you (FYI, the real Lamborghini Aventador just costs $379,700.)
Pictured above and below is Robert Gülpen, who spent 500 hours building the model car that’s encrusted with $2.7 million worth of precious stones and metals.
The 1:8 replica of the Lambo Aventador is being auctioned off by Sotheby’s with a starting bid of €3.5 million (equivalent to about $4,789,000.) If someone bid for my model car at that insane amount, heck, I’d be flashing a smile that’s way bigger than the one Robert’s sporting.
