Artist Creates $4.7 Million Model Car
We know Lamborghinis are meant to be expensive, but with an expected auction price of $4.7 million this latest version from renowned German scale model builder Robert Gülpen takes the cake.
You see, Gülpen’s Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, roughly 1/8th the size of the real thing, is built entirely out of precious metals, diamonds, and of course, some carbon fiber.

Having found much success with his previous solid gold Bugatti Veyron model, Gülpen sought out to build a new model. This time around he chose Lamborghini’s new Aventador LP 700-4 to immortalize due to the supercar’s own uncompromising design.
The end result is this stunning model, which features solid gold suspension, wheels cast from platinum, gold-plated carbon fiber body panels, and seats lined with more than 700 diamonds. If this is still not enough, Gülpen will even add more modifications to the model to make it even more exclusive.

In case you’re wondering, the model’s expected selling price of $4.7 million is more than 10 times the price of a brand new Aventador.
