• Golden Porsche 996 Turbo rides again

This is undoubtedly one of the most famous cars to make it onto the internet. It is nothing more than a standard 996 Porsche Carrera Turbo convertible that has been dipped in over 45 pounds of gold which brings the value of this slightly modified 911 closer to around $600,000.

Top Speed first reported on the car when it was stolen and then luckily for the owner was recovered. It now seems that Mr. Midas has mustered up the courage to once again leave the safety of his garage and take the car out for a spin.

It is nice to see that the car doing what is does best when it was spotted out and about in the south of France, where the weather is perfect for convertible driving pleasure. Even the owner seemed to be a bit relaxed behind the wheel, however he better keep a close eye on it in the car park.
