SLR When the ultra rich get crazy

I don't know if these pictures have made it through the forum, but I'd love to own this one.

Reportedly it's not Chromed or Stainless but White Gold.

Ha! That's a bad a$$ SLR. I also noticed its at the Mall of the Emirates. I have been there! lol That little "pull up" area is packed with some awesome rides. It seems like all the guys over there show off what they got there. And they are ALL always modded. I have seen more Lambo's, Ferrari's, Bugatti's and just a crap load of bad a$$ rides there. Its in Dubai if anyone was wondering. Nice SLR though.

I have done the same thing to my SL - albeit in yellow gold - but realized it was too ostentatious so I had it painted over again....

I'm pretty sure with everyone around you going blind, it's probably a safety hazard.

Wow, crazy is right. Probably looks cool driving it around in the city at night though.

Maybe it's just a T-1000 lying in wait?!

Are you kidding me. Middle East is where they got the money (Oil). Dubai is growing like crazy. I think right now they are in the process of building the world's tallest building.

I haven't been to the Middle East but have heard crazy stuff that people own houses the size of the White House and this one guy an Oil Tycoon owns a house that literally looks like a hotel.

At the same time the economy is going down the drain there right now.. I read a article somewhere on how hundreds of thousands of cars are collecting dust because the owners can't pay them off

It's funny how quickly things change. This was posted 8 or 9 months ago when everything in Dubai was going gangbusters and how they're having big money problems just like everywhere else in the world.
