We have all seen our fair share of matte black and pink wraps lately. Of course, those colors seem to be pretty ordinary when pinned up against the latest wrap craze. What’s hotter than a matte black wrap? Well, to some owners, it would be the rich color of gold. The last sports car featuring this new trend was the Audi R8 spotted in Moscow, Russia. Maybe the gold wrapping is no longer as unique as it once was considering we have seen plenty of cars with a golden touch. Until now we have seen a golden Ferrari Enzo, a golden Bugatti Veyron and a golden Ferrari 599 GTB by Hamann. We just hope that people will not believe the wrap to be real gold so the Audi R8 doesn’t see the same fate as did a golden Porsche that was stolen last year in Moscow.

The Audi R8 features a mid-mounted V8 FSI engine, quattro permanent four-wheel drive, and Audi Space Frame aluminum body. The engine delivers a total of 420 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and can hit a top speed of 187 mph.

They should take really good care of this car, or any car in gold. I hope there will be a golden Mini too. smiley

Are they making it from pure molten gold mixed into a paint?

In order to protect this precious pieces of metal, they must make a security system that would nullify all forms of intrusions.

Cars for the rich and famous, those cars are ridiculously golden.

agree, Unfortunately, there is no info available about how much was spent on the golden makeover, but golden Audi certainly looks far better than in sickish gray or black color.

I agree, this should also have a bulletproof glass that can deal with 7.62 AP bullets, just to be safe of course.

driving this r8 is very risky.. you’re just putting your life on the line having it.
