It would move, silver is not very heavy --- but probably not very far, as it would quite likely bend in the middle when the passengers got in. Pure silver is very soft and very bendable.
pure silver also corrodes easily in presence of sulphur pollutants, it'd blacken.

In a chromed bathroom I don't think one could help it. I'd have to go in with a blindfold on


Somehow Chroming only looks good on custom bikes, that too only the engine, wheels and the exhausts.

Since a car has a large surface area chroming really really would look ugly, be it any car. I'd rather prefer a chromed engine case, wheels and exhausts than the whole car itself !

edit: Is chrome called the white gold or not ? It should read "Chrome paintjob" rather than "white gold"

Well, I guess there are some pretty powerful engines inside, but really, it may be 'just sheet metal', but it would be unbelievably heavy in gold --- because gold is unbelievably heavy!

It would certainly tarnish, although I have found that pure silver is less prone to tarnishing than the stronger alloys used for jewellery and plate. Plenty of work for the driver!

Boy, a stock SLR obviously wasn't expensive or exclusive enough for this gentleman. The chrome job looks eye-catching. Deep dish matt black alloys with a chrome lip ought to be on this dudes upgrade list.

Guy!

Obviously I have not clicked the pics.
Unfortunately this car has been made for a Arab Prince, and what I assume is that it’s been coated with white gold, that’s Platinum & not chrome.

Cool For all the Gold Diggers! A Gold Plated Mercedes

These pictures were taken by a guy called Arik Maniar at the Mall of the Emirates. Personally, I think it's the worst looking car, but for the people who like gold, it's heaven.

Well, it's a C63 AMG. Even if it looks like a ssangyong musso or a ssangyong rodius, I would still love to own it.

Gold is a serious commodity. Great in today's troubled times. Hideous as it may look, it'd be good to own this in terms of a pure investment purpose. Besides, instead of stocking up with gold in bars, I'd rather be able to drive mine with a bellowing V8 under the hood Now that's precious heavy metal imo. \m/
