Bugatti Veyron Diamond, the $2.9M Toy Car

We all love supercars and most definitely most of us love Bugatti cars. Despite their steep price, some of us even buy Bugattis. But how far would you go to express your love for the brand? Or, better yet, how much would you spend?

Owning a Bugatti makes you, by definition, a better man/woman than the lesser people who can barely lease a Dacia Logan or a Tata Nano for under $100/month.

So, you're part of the elite. Even so, the primordial need for you to be the best of the elite still haunts the dreams you have in that Swarovski-tapered bed of yours. Owning several Bugattis might do the trick, but others (read Arab Sheikhs who owned them by the tens) have already done that. What do you do, then?

Well, buying a toy which costs more than the real car itself will surely put you on top of the consumerist food chain.

The means to the accomplishment of your goals is called Bugatti Veyron Diamond and, as you already figured it out, it's not an actual Bugatti car, but a scale model of one. Of a Veyron, to be more precise. Manufactured by Stuart Hughes & Robert Gulpen, the 1:18 scale model is made of 7 kg of pure, 24k gold and platinum. Should that not be enough, the front of the model is wrapped in a 7.2 carats single cut Flawless Diamond, you know, the cherry on the cake.

The creators of this over-expensive presse-papier thrown in a functioning steering column, operational hoods and detailed engine and parts.

Thank God!... Now we can understand why it costs $2.9 million.

PS. Only three units will be built, so get your bank accounts in order.
