This gold Lamborghini Aventador with Saudi Arabian license plates has been swanning around the streets of Paris lately. Some sources claim the finish is real gold leaf that's been layered on to the car; others say it's merely paint (although I don't know how gold paint could be made to look so metallic and highly polished). Whatever it is, it sure looks expensive!
Talk about conspicuous consumption . . . From a driver's point of view, I wouldn't want to drive an Aventador in Paris. There's no way to take advantage of its performance on those narrow streets. Of course, if all you want to do is look flashy to the locals . . .
