There’s nothing more ridiculous than paying double the price for a 1/18th scale replica of a car that already comes with a price tag of $1.7 million. Unless, of course, that mini replica is made completely of solid gold and platinum. Oh, and it’s got diamonds, too. Lots and lots of diamonds.

Co-created by British jeweler Stuart Hughes and Swiss model car maker Robert Gulpen, this extremely limited Diamond Edition Bugatti Veyron scale model is without question, one of the most expensive - and rarest - scale model replicas you’ll ever come across. Made of solid 24-carat gold and platinum with a single cut 7.2-carat diamond found in the Veyron’s grille, this 7-kilo piece of art will only be limited to three models at about $3 million a piece. Apart from the eye-popping exterior, this replica also comes with a steering that actually turns and operates the wheels of the car plus an operational convertible hood that’s completely similar to a real life-size Veyron.

While it seems completely absurd for anyone to purchase this replica knowing that with that money, you can buy two of the real things, some people - yeah, those obscenely rich folks that use hundred-dollar bills as centerpieces in their dining table - won’t have any problem forking over that kind of money if it means having one of these gold and diamond-studded Veyrons sitting proudly on their desks.

haha.A car that was made with pure gold would be a great deal! However, I’m afraid that it could get into so much weight and how could we actually drive it without the thereat on our safety.

Well we’re talking about 24K gold here and a piece of diamonds.

Well, this is not just an ordinary replica because this made of 7 kilograms worth of solid gold, platinum and diamonds, because a super exotic replica should fill the void perfectly.
