Dennis Rodman, known for his outlandish appearance and behavior on and off the NBA court, had a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo customized to fit his style… and possibly his style only. In true Rodman extravagance, he had his Gallardo repainted a unique gold flake finish featuring a rainbow-esque shade depending on how the light hits it. In his defense, this style of paint was probably cool and flashy enough back when he did it to match his style.

Who are we kidding. There’s no way to defend this type of paint job (which costs $15,000, no less) on one of Italy’s finest exotics. Though it’s worth mentioning that the entire exotic isn’t treated to the special shade; the sides of the vehicle are now in a gloss black thanks to a fender bender. As of March it sported only 7,000 miles on the odometer. It’s also worth mentioning that the Gallardo is apparently outfitted with $12,000 custom wheels, but that value might be a tad inflated.
