This 2006 solid gold Ford GT is up for sale

This solid gold Ford GT will make any petrolhead drool – and it is for sale now on auction site Sothebys. Bidding starts at a whopping $24,000 and is expected to go up to $40,000 before it closes on the 3rd of December at 11:00 AM (EST).

It is 7.25 inches (18.41com) long and 3.25 inches wide (8.255 cm) wide making it weigh 3.25 pounds (1.414 kg). The Ford GT is a 1/25 scale model, 18-carat gold and comes with a protective case to make sure that it doesn't get damaged.

If you actually do buy it you won't see anything like it around because it is the only one ever made. The casting and assembly of this little gem was done by Ahee Jewelers in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

It does have some wear on the interior which suggests that the owner loved to play inside the car, and the turning feature in the case doesn't work anymore.

Other than that it would make the perfect gift for a friend for Christmas – or you can just keep it for yourself!

  • What a blatant waste of money!!

    For the base price of that shiny trinket you could buy pretty decent proper full sized cars such as the fiat 124 spider, a Camry, the Honda civic, or even the petrolhead favourite...

    The Toyota Prius...
