Haven’t got Dad a gift for Father’s Day yet? Forgo the last-minute dash to 7-11 for usual card and Oh Henry! gift combo and order him a Bugatti Veyron Diamond Edition model car.

The Bugatti Veyron – the most expensive new production car in the world – is the inspiration for this ridiculous expensive dinky car. You can’t even go for a spin and show this bad boy off, as it’s a 1:18 scale model. And even if you could, you’d need a 24/7 security detail to guard it, as it’s made of solid 24ct gold and features 7.2ct single cup flawless diamonds. The work of Robert Gulpen of Munich and Stuart Hughes of Liverpool, this beauty comes with functional steering and operational hoods, certification of authenticity, glass house, aluminum case and photo documentation of the manufacturing process.

Okay, so chances are you won’t be able to afford this little trinket – it runs about £2 million (roughly $3 million), and even if you could, only three will be made (it takes about 2 months to finish, thanks to the intricate work required). Oh well, it’s the thought that counts.
