• Red and gold Mercedes SLR - money can’t buy taste

Ueli Anlicker of Switzerland is out to prove money can’t buy sophistication. He may have finally hit this point home with a $4.3 million investment in a Mercedes SLR. Anlicker added rubies, real gold and even a functional bodykit, but unfortunately he left out one small element: style. The car is rumored to have 999 horsepower (382 more than the standard car,) which at least means it can get out of sight faster.

Like the golden Porsche, someone please steal this so the world doesn’t have to see it again.
