This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve seen chrome-wrapped cars, (or gold ones) but there is certainly a craze happening out in Russia with the style. And apparently chrome and gold cars come in all shapes and sizes out there including Bentleys, Lamborghinis and various Mercedes-Benzes in various models.

But this one is all about a brand new BMW X5 M that came in a sleek but boring black. Erik, the owner, decided to add yet another shiny gold car to his collection and opted to have the vehicle wrapped. What is interesting is that no other modifications were done to the car. One thing is clear about this elite group of chrome/gold-wrapped cars; they want to be spotted from a mile away and be notoriously known for their style.
