Gold Plated Porsche Cayenne

As if the Cayenne doesn't get flamed enough as it is, someone had to go and throw gold fuel on the already burning fire. To date, I've seen "murdered out" Porsches (flat black), Porsches covered in camouflage, 911s covered in Tweed and other things that defy description, but this is the first time I've seen a Cayenne completely covered in gold foil (including the wheels).


I know I'm going out on a limb here, but I kind of like this. Let me explain, I'm not a fan of the look, but rather the quality of the craftsmanship required to create this look. The wheels, I could do without those. What are your thoughts?

    Since you asked for thoughts, I’ll give you mine. This is one of the most disgusting displays of conspicuous consumption I have ever seen. Some people have way too much money for their own or anybody else’s good, and it is a shame that so much of it gets wasted in obscene ways. This abomination reminds of the gold plated toilets that the former president of Iraq used to polish with his pimply ass, while his people starved. Nothing more than gold-plated, mindless crassness to me.

    Thanks for the posts, John. I really enjoy them!

    Considering Dubai is also home of stainless steel Audis, this is the next logical progression. I certainly am not surprised with any extreme shows of wealth there (after 6 years of traveling there on a monthly basis until 2007). But considering their property values have dropped 40% and their slave-wage laborers are getting packed up and sent back to where they came from, I suspect we will be seeing little more of this for a little while.
