Miami | Wednesday, June 20th, 2012
On June 16th, Lamborghini Miami disclosed its newest addition to the Aventador family at the Exotics and Espressos event: a Lamborghini that is sleek, shiny and covered almost entirely of gold.
Owner of Prestige Imports, Brett David, said, “When you combine the two you have a true piece of performing art which becomes a double whammy of the two highest valued commodities on the market today: gold and Lamborghini’s.”
The standard Aventador boasts a V12 engine, 700 horse power and reaches up to 217 mph. The one-of-a-kind Aventador AU79, which is named after the periodic table, is an extra $50,000 reaching the steep price of $550,000. David said it took 70 days to complete the gold foil, normally a 30-hour job, and that this project was spurred by the decision to “think outside the box”.
