World’s Most Expensive Auto Sparkles With Seven Thousand Gems

THIS little town car is made up of a preponderant assortment of precious gems. The body contains 3,000 fine diamonds over half of which are square or ornate in shape, while an exquisite pair of briolettes is used as side lamps.

A sweeping streamline is given the body through the use of 1,000 oriental rubies. The tire holder is enhanced by the famous Australian opal.

    Judging by the size of the tire opal, I’m guessing this is a model car. Probably somewhere between 1/18 and 1/25 scale, if it’s to scale at all.
