The power of extravagance knows no bounds, especially for those who just can’t seem to get enough of it. Then again, when you have the ability to just throw money around like its disposable paper, we suppose that you can do pretty much anything you want, including plating your Ferrari supercar in gold.

This is the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano that has been worked on by Hamann so there’s some top-level tuning in the car already. We already saw this car in the past but it’s certainly worth repeating: this bad boy is plated...with gold.

Apparently, the car belongs to a wealthy and high-profile individual from Dubai and was recently spotted in London being accompanied by no less than a Mansory-tuned Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. If a six-figure Rolls-Royce can serve as the ’bodyguard’ of this gold-plated 599 GTB Fiorano, then it certainly speaks volumes as to how extravagant this 673-horsepower, gold-plated Ferrari really is.

The only thing that boggles our mind is how he can get around town, let alone bring it to another country, without being worried about all the eyes that will inevitably fix their attention on his one-of-a-kind Ferrari.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Whew! This one is a piece of everybody’s price possession! This gold plated car is one of those many cars we will never forget.

The color of the car is unique and the combination of the body of the car and the wheel of the car is the same and this car is so fast with the horsepower of 673.

I’m pretty sure that this new Ferrari Fiorano will be as expensive as it looks aside from the fact that they are with Roll Royce. By the way, the interior also looks good and the performance is quite impressive too.

This is a waste of money to buy this stuff. It is still not advisable,in my opinion, to use gold for a car. It will be a temptation for the thieves. By the way, it is a good thing that Roll Royce and Ferrari are engineering on one project.

Yeah, I agree on you on that one. Well, for sure this one of the dude that doesn’t know on how to spent his richness! And for sure this wealthy folks have the Midas touch! I wonder on how much does he spend on this vehicle? Maybe in the future I might turn my car into gold-plated as well!hehehe
