The World’s Most Expensive Car Interior

Published by Nadeem Muaddi on February 11th, 2012

Apparently Ueli Anliker has never heard the saying: “Less is more”. The flamboyant Swiss entrepreneur recently completed the customization of his Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. Encrusted in gold and rubies – it features the world’s most expensive (and, probably, gaudiest) interior.

According to The Sun, Anliker’s “Red Gold Dream” (that’s what he calls it) features a gold-trimmed interior, jewel-encrusted indicators, golden steering wheel and a ruby-covered gear stick.

Overkill? There’s more…

The Benz is painted in 25 layers of red paint mixed with gold dust; features 24-carat gold wheels, headlights and door sills; and is decorated with over 600 rubies. The paint alone took 35 men and 30,000 hours to complete.

The Benz – which Top Gear says could “burn a hole through your eyes and into your nightmares” – is not for sale. However, Anliker is willing to entertain offers of $11 million or more.

Let The Hog Ring know if you buy Anliker’s car – we’d love to feature you in our “Hall of Shame” category…

    LOL, getting a kick out of Lars Hoogernoogin (frderrr frderrr frderrrr) in the video with the glaring red shorts and polo. He keeps turning to the model while he speaks. Like she has ANY clue what kind of gaudy heap of yuck she’s showing off. That car is…. sucking….the ….. life….. out …. of me.
