Already luxurious cars made even crazier? There are several ways how the manufacturers improve their models. For instance, they can make a limited edition version that has luxury features and one-of-a-kind equipment. If you are still not satisfied with the result, you as a buyer can do a lot of things as well. Adding aftermarket parts is one option and the second is to coat your vehicle in Swarovski crystals. Wait, what?
Here are five car models that have Swarovski crystals on them and not only do they look shiny, but they are also expensive!
5. Mercedes-Benz SL600
It is presented by Garson, a company famous for adding glam and glitz as they customize the vehicle for their owners. Two Mercedes models have gone through this overhaul, and you can find one in silver and the other one in gold.
The vehicles were presented at the Tokyo Auto Show before they were sold. The number of crystals used on each supercar – 300,000! Consequently, there is a large boost in price and the Mercedes-Benz SL600 was sold for $901,000. As you might have assumed, the buyer is from Dubai.
4. Mercedes CLS 350
Russian student Daria Radionova is selling her Mercedes CLS 350 on eBay. However, this is not a regular German vehicle. In fact, one million Swarovski crystals have been glued to the body, and it took only several days to draw the attention of the people around the world. The starting price for this model is just under £90,000, but we are sure that it will go way up!
3. Lamborghini Huracan
The Lamborghini Huracan was built to be fast, and any aftermarket addition would only reduce the value of this car. You are wrong! The Huracan you can see here is covered with 1.3 million Swarovski crystals, and it is as glamorous as it can get. Vinceri, a UK-based crystal customization company is responsible for this Huracan, but don’t we have a surprise for you. The owner is no other than Daria Radionova, who apparently loves Swarovski over her vehicles.
2. La Ferrari
La Ferrari remote control car is another one on our list with Swarovski crystals all over its body. Although this is an electric toy car, it still looks stunning, and we had to include it on our list. What’s even better is that La Ferrari is brand new. It was made earlier this year, and it didn’t leave the garage until it was sold. In case you have always wanted to have a supercar donned in valuable crystals, but you don’t have the money to buy the full-size model, this La Ferrari should do.
1. Lyzer Supercar
The custom car show in Tokyo, Japan is a home to many unexpected design and vehicles you cannot see anywhere else in the world. Even though it lasts only three days, more than 300,000 visitors come to enjoy Fast and Furious typed vehicles.
One car stole the spotlight – the LYZER supercar had 600,000 Swarovski crystals glued to its body by hand and the fact that it is pink draws even more attention. In order not to create wrong color combinations, the company added pink leather seats, pink LED underbody light and headlamps as well as pink breaks. No, the driver is not Pink Panther.
As you can see, there are plenty of vehicles that are coated in Swarovski crystals. Whether they look beautiful or not is up to you to decide. These are all luxury models and supercars, but we would really love to see more traditional vehicles such as a Beetle covered in the valuable crystals. Wouldn’t that be thrilling?
