Some people, thanks to their deep pockets, just can’t help but put new meaning to the word ’excessive’. Take the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador for example.

Sure, he already has one of the most opulent supercars on the planet, but he decided to give it an added shine, and he took it pretty literally, too. You see, this isn’t just any Aventador; this is an Aventador that has been foil-wrapped in gold chrome.

The name of the gold chrome Aventador is "Project AU79" and while we’re not too sure what the ’79’ stands for, we do know that "AU" - or Au - is the symbol of gold in the periodic table of elements.

YouTube member Vodeezz was on hand for the official unveiling of the Aventador Project AU79 so we’re tipping our hats off to him for catching this true one-of-a-kind 700-horsepower Aventador get its proverbial shine on.

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 More

The 79 in the name refers to golds atomic number. Doesnt take a genius to figure that out especially if you know Au is gold. For a writer you should have researched just a bit more. All it takes is a simple google search.
