Miniature Lamborghini Aventador cost 12 times more than a real one

A German model maker has unveiled his finest creation yet – a scale model of a Lamborghini Aventador worth over three million pounds. Robert Gülpen has built the most expensive car model in the world – a 1:8 scale replica of the Lamborghini Aventador made from carbon, platinum gold and decorated with precious stones.

Robert Gülpen has been working on miniature model cars for over a decade now. The 52 year old took up the hobby after retiring from his career as a mechanical engineer. Gülpen started making miniature car models from precious metals in the late 1990s which includes the Morgan Aero 8; Mercedes Benz 500 SL and Aston Martin DB5 from precious metals and gems and eventually became a renown miniature car model maker.

He decided the cutting edge Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 would be the perfect choice for his greatest masterpiece.  The body of the car is made from carbon, just like the original, and features precious metals and stones. Metal was used for the detailed rims and diamonds were inserted into the seats, steering wheel and headlights.

It took the German artist 500 hours to complete the world’s most expensive car model, but he now stands to receive more than a fair compensation. His little Lamborghini Aventador is scheduled to be auctioned off in December, by Sotheby’s, in either Dubai or New York, with a starting price of €3.5 million, nearly 12 times more than a real Aventador LP 700-4 (€303,450). But, if a buyer doesn’t feel like waiting until then, they can pay €4.5 million and take home the car. It will be displayed under bullet-proof glass and electronic safeguards to protect the potential buyer's investment at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show starting September 25.

I couldn't even afford a real Lamborghini Aventador and what more a extremely expensive Aventador by Gülpen. If I can afford one, I'll rather choose a real Aventador to have the ultimate driving experience rather than a miniature that I can only put in a safe. This toy is most likely for a person who is loaded with extra cash till the extend he/she has no where else to spend!
