The Aventador AU79 is just that – a regular Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 wrapped in a chrome gold foil. It has a top speed of 217mph (700 horsepower). According to the manufacturers it takes 30 hours to wrap the entire coating in gold, but it takes 70 days to produce the gold foil which is used to make it gold at a price of US$50,000 / £30,000.

The car weighs in at 1,575 kilograms (3,472lb) and is powered by a 6.5 litre V-12 engine with an output of 700 horsepower and a torque of 690 Newton meters, this gives it a power-to-weight-ratio of 2.25kg/4.96lb per horsepower.

The Aventador AU79 has an acceleration rate of 0-100 Km/h in just 2.9 seconds. The top speed is 350 Km/h.

Speaking to reporters who interviewed the proprietor of the car show where the AU79 is sold, Brett David of Prestige Imports 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 Lamborghinis.”

The first Aventador AU79 was completed by the Auto SuprerShield team in Boca Raton Florida on June 16th last year at the Exotics & Espresso Exhibition.

The Exotic & Espresso Exhibition take place on every 3rd Saturday of the month and the car is priced at just US$550,000 / £350,000.
