THE CAR COSTS $4.8 MILLION

IT BELONGS TO PRINCE WALEED FROM SAUDI ARABIA.
Diamond Covered Mercedes.

Spotted at one of the Middle Eastern country's many auto shows, the Mercedes SL in question comes complete with a diamond encrusted paint scheme (or so it appears), chrome wheels, and of course, white fur-lined seating.




Prince Waleed's Million Dollar Car : Diamond Studded Mercedes Benz SL600

Invented and patented by Daniel Swarovski in 1892, the precision-cut crystal glasses made through the energy-intensive grinding process have been applied into many ranges of products including crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home d├ęcor and chandeliers. In order to create a crystal that allows light to refract in a rainbow spectrum, SWAROVSKI AG of Wattens, Austria – the company founded in 1895 by Armand Kosman and Franz Weis – coats some of its crystals with special metallic chemical coatings.
One of the most popular coatings is Aurora Borealis or “AB” which gives the surface a rainbow oil slick appearance. Other coatings include Crystal Transmission, Volcano, Aurum, and Dorado. A new copyrighted cut, released in 2004, Xilion is able to optimize the brilliance of Roses (crystal components with flat backs) and Chatons (diamond cut).


To decorate the gullwing (upward-opening doors) roadster, the artisans have shaped each Swarovsky crystal into a diamond and then glued it onto the exterior and interior of the car. It took 3 months to complete each “bling-bling” Mercedez-Benz worth JP¥ 40,000,000 (approximately USD 442,311.52).
