Redefining the term “enough is enough”, the owner of this car is said to have had his SLR gold-chromed. The strangest part is that, according to reports, this is actually the same Mercedes SLR McLaren that was previously spied in Dubai with a silver-chrome treatment.
We’re not sure about the accuracy of this model considering it has a different rear spoiler, different wheels (which have also been gold-chromed) and darker taillight frame like those on later versions of the Anglo-Saxon supercar, not to mention a different license plate… although the car also reportedly belongs to the owner of a UAE license plate registry, so anything’s possible.
The sad reality is that someone, whether it’s the same guy or not, looked at a chromed McMerc and thought, Yeah, but what if it were plated in gold? Sure makes the gold-plated VeyronPhantom DHC sent to the same region seem like the epitome of good taste.
