Ronald McDonald would be Proud – SLR 999 Red Gold Dream Priced at $10.8 million

Does money buy you class?

Sometimes people have some much money that they don’t know what to do with it. Yes, it’s a problem that we’d all love to have, but when it’s coupled with poor taste, the results can be horrifying.

Take this eye-catching red and gold Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. It cost a pretty penny due to the fact that it features 24-karat gold trimmings, a “unique” body kit, and 999 bhp. Named the Anliker McLaren SLR 999 Red Gold Dream, the SLR was created by Swiss businessman Ueli Anliker. The car took over 30,000 hours to complete and Anliker spent over £ 3.5 million on its construction.

The SLR 999 Red Gold Dream appeared at Tuning World 2009 and has become somewhat of an internet sensation because of its outlandish appearance. Now, Anliker is reportedly asking for $10.8 million (€8.2 million/ £7 million) for those interested in purchasing the one-of-a-kind model.

Any takers?
