Amazing Midas Touch Autos

A special feature on cars wrapped in gold.

These cars are literally as good as gold. Covering a car in gold may sound crazy, but when you can easily afford it, why not do it? Each of these cars probably cost more than most make in a lifetime, but their high price tag shouldn't stop you from checking them all out below. Covering a car that cost $1.75 million in gold is a bold move, especially considering the harsh desert climate of the Kuwait, the country where this gold Bugatti Veyron can be found. To counteract the harsh elements this Veyron is given $10,000 detail jobs and stored in a garage that is both climate and atmosphere controlled.

This one-of-a-kind 500, dubbed La Dolce Vita Gold and Diamonds 200hp, was created by Italian tuning company Fenice Milano for an anonymous Chinese businessman. Each and every inch of the car is either covered with 24k gold, diamonds or a combination of the two. The cost of all this awesomeness: a whopping $665,830.

The Middle East is the go-to region for solid gold supercars, as proved by the gold Bugatti Veyron and the golden Audi R8. This R8 has been given a matte gold finish designed to draw onlookers in as opposed to blinding them with reflected sunlight. Next time you make a trip to Dubai, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this one.

Rolls-Royce's Bespoke Program is responsible for the gold Phantom you see before you. This Phantom has a solid gold paint job and a gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament.

What could be better than a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG? If you said an all-gold Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, then you my friend, are correct. This crazy rich car made its public debut at the aptly named “Bling on Wheels” show in Dubai. No word on the cost of this car, but the golden window tint indicates that it is more than likely ridiculously high.
