Remember we told you about that Lamborghini Aventador LP700 model car that is selling for about $4.8 million (15 times more than the real thing)? Well, now there’s a model that’s set to beat that price tag.

The Lamborghini Aventador in question has been gilded in gold. German car model maker Robert Guelpen is in talks with a private collector for this special commission, which will see this model sporting the Midas touch. Guelplen is set to break his old record with this new version. There’s no word what he’ll use this time around to craft the golden model, but we’re guessing platinum, carbon fiber and diamonds will make its way into the mix. Word on the street is that the gold model will boast 700 diamonds studded on each of the two seats inside, a chassis made with solid gold, and accessories like platinum wheel rims.

If you had the money, would you spend it on a gold model or do you think spending so much on a car you can’t even drive is a waste? Let us know in the comments section below.
