The Audi R8 might seem like just another supercar to the Europeans and Americans that have gotten used to its shape. But in China, it's more like a moving piece of art combined with a billboard that advertises your wealth.
You see, an R8 V10 Spyder like this one would have cost CNY2.5 million, or about $400,000 in today's money. That's about the same as you'd expect to pay for a Lamboghini Aventador in America. So not many people can afford to buy the R8, but that doesn't mean it will be treated with respect.

The German supercar has been wrapped in a sort of rose gold or copper color. From a distance it looks good enough, but some of the details aren't quite right. For example, the base color is visible through the vents and underneath the rear wing.

According to, the golden R8 resides in the city of Dalian in Liaoning Province. A 525 horsepower gold car means only one thing in China: "I'm rich and you'd better get out of my way!"
