The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most expensive automobiles in the world. Somewhat paradoxically, a couple of enterprising fellows have managed to craft a replica that's even pricier than the original on which it's based, and they've done it by downsizing.
Of course, the fact that it's made from 24 karat gold and encrusted with 7.2 carats worth of diamonds adds mightily to its £2 million ($2.93 million at today's exchange rates) asking price. Yes, that is indeed a higher sum than it would take to put a real, full-size Veyron in your driveway.
Robert Gulpen of Munich & Stuart Hughes of Liverpool only plan to craft three examples of the 1:18 scale solid gold Bugatti Veyron replica, so we suggest you get on the ball if you've decided your living room mantle. See it in all its fully functional glory in our image gallery below.
