Wow what a display of wealth! This is not new though. I remember seeing this in one of the forwards I received sometime back. Nonetheless, its a nice thing to own.

This guy would give a damn to depreciation. With the rate of gold soaring to new heights, appreciating the value of the car with it. An awesome investment in this recession period.

Eventhough the car looks great, but still what a waste of money. The amount of money spent on gold, i would have rather gone for a super car to flaunt my wealth.

Errr, have I mentioned the density of gold before? Or its softness? At least its malleability would make dents easy to handle --- but I'm convinced that a car with a body of actual gold would just not go, or, at best, would perform like a truck.

Gold-plated, I think. Like "1-gram gold" jewellery.

Still... rather more expensive than a teflon coating!

Does someone really drives this?
I doubt so, must be just for display.

Yeah i agree, as a car the C 63 is to kill for, but for me the gold ruined it all! I absolutely hate the damn colour! (not the commodity). But i agree, it'll be a good investment.

By the way, does anyone have an idea as to who does these jobs in mumbai? haven't ever seen a car like that here!

buying such a powerful car just for show doesnt makes show..
infact it will create more of sensation if this chrome thing passes by at 200km/h.;like something alien passing by.
