$1M Gold-Plated Austin Healey is the Original Pimp My Ride

For Sale

It comes with mink-upholstered seats in case you were wondering.

As of writing, the eBay listing for this rare 1958 Austin Healey 100-Six has ended, but may yet resurface. The one-off was originally created to stir up some excitement at the 1958 London Motor Show, and came coated in a special ivory paint job, 24-carat gold plating, champagne leather interior and mink upholstered seats. Healey experts have lovingly restored the car, which the seller is hoping to get $1 million for.

When it was first displayed, the extravagant Healey, described as “the most flirtatious car in show” was priced at £4,000 – nearly four times the price of a stock 100-Six at the time. A Texas Jeep specialist is selling the one-off vintage model, so if you want the original Pimp My Ride vehicle get in touch via the link to see if it’s still for sale.
