Genuine Diamond Paint Invented by German Porsche Tuner


Odds are if you’re driving around a Porsche, you’re very well to do already. If you’re driving around in a Porsche tuned by a German Porsche company called Gemballa, you’re definitely rich. If you rolling around in that Gemballa modified Porsche sports car rocking the company’s new diamond paint, you are serious Gem-balla (see what I did right there).


The Porsche tuner has announced that it has created a new coating that appears to be a highly metallic silver color. Rather than using the metal pigment, glass fragments, or crystals like us normal plebs would have in our metallic paints, these people use real diamonds. I can only imagine how expensive that paint job would be.

The company isn’t saying how many carats of diamonds are needed to paint an entire car or how much the paint would cost. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the paint job alone costs significantly more than the Porsche it’s coating.
