The residents of Dubai have become notorious for their flagrant, often tasteless displays of wealth. So what better place for the world’s most expensive car? From man-made islands shaped to resemble the world’s seven continents, to what is said to be the world’s most extravagant hotel, the Burj Al Arab, nothing is too much. One favorite plaything among the privileged minority eligible for citizenship, and thus a share of the country’s oil revenues, are high-end sports cars. Young Dubai men with nothing to pass their days speed around town, dodging the migrant workers they treat as slaves, in their shiny Ferrari or Porsche.
So it comes as little surprise that this would be the site of the world’s priciest car – a $7.4 million dollar golden Lamborghini. 500kg of gold was used to craft the 700bhp V12 Aventador. It can reach 100km per hour in under 3 seconds flat and if you’re out for a late night cruise you can count on its diamond encrusted headlights – which are also woven into the seats. No worries – a cool $650k from the sale of this gold Lambo will reportedly go to charity.
