A car with 24-karat gold body

On March 29, 2011, a car encrusted with the tiles made of a 24-karat gold. Instead of being a displaying car, the owner does drive it to go shopping. Police decided to tow it away for illegal parking on street.

Let’s recall another extremely expensive car displayed in December 2007. Celebrated Folk art master Su Zhongyang has created a stunning ivory carving masterpiece. His ‘Jiu Jiu Xiang Long’ ivory carving car is adorned with 99 fortunate dragons. The car is 4.5 meters long, 1.81 meters wide and 1.9 meters high and weighs 2 tons. Most parts of the ivory car are festooned with colossal ivory and yak bone. If ivory only doesn’t impress you that much, the masterpiece is adorned with gold and diamonds too. The sales generated from the auction will be donated to the Guangzhou Asian Games to be launched in 2010. The incredible ivory carving car is valued at US $2.7 million.
