This is what happens to a car when its owner has too much money and hails from the land of Ricola sweets.
The Mclaren SLR alone costs a bomb, US$495,000 to be exact. This incredibly garish, pimped out SLR on the other hand costs US$4.5 million on top of the base price because of its 24 carat gold accents. It is all thanks to Swiss designer Ueli Anliker. The Mclaren now looks more like a Pussycat Doll's handbag than a car..
Check out the plush gold seats and trim.. This car has more bling than Snoop Dog and Jay Z combined. Its just hideous! The potential best-Mercedes-of-all-time SLR has been catastrophically transformed into an orgy of red and gold, I cringe at the sight of it.
From Classic Silver...
to Ridiculous Red.
And when you look at the man behind the 'Mclaren SLR 999', you'd understand why its all red and gold.. He probably just wanted to match his red jeans and his gal's gold outfit.
No wonder the Swiss haven't invented a car.
