.....nee, in DIT geval is het zelfs 24-karaats goud! Nog exclusiever dan de Daimler Century van Harro!

In 1959, Jaguar Cars in Coventry England built the "Golden Jaguar" to introduce the Mark 2 sedan to the U.S. The car was unveiled at the New York Auto Show in 1960. As an advertising and marketing ploy Jaguar cars hired a model wearing a 24-karat gold thread gown, gold hose and shoes and a fortune in precious-gem jewelry complete with a diamond tiara from Van Cleef & Arpels. The car was trimmed throughout in gold plating--wire wheels, gold bumpers front and rear, gold front grille, door handles, exhaust pipes, windshield wipers, etc. The original car was shown only at the New York Auto Show and then returned to England where the gold pieces were removed and replaced with chrome and then sold as a new car. In 1998 the car underwent a ground-up restoration with its complete gold trim, just as it appeared at the 1960 New York Auto Show. The "Golden Jaguar" will celebrate its Golden Anniversary in 2009-2010.

Harro kan normaal deelnemen in het verkeer en 'm gewoon stallen.

 

Dit prachtige exemplaar met al dat goud wordt hier gejat en na een jaar verbrand in een Roemeens potkacheltje :sarcastichand:

Potverdrie!!  Wel mooi!!

 

En....goud hoef je niet te poetsen...(zolang het er nog op zit inderdaad).

 

De inmiddels overleden zelfbenoemde Prince van Lignac (ene meneer Van Leeuwen...) heeft ooit zijn miljoenenjacht met goud uitgerust daar waar normaal gesproken koper of messing zou moeten zitten. Reden: Goedkoper omdat je minder Philipijnse hulpjes nodig hebt omdat je goud gewoon kunt afnemen en nooit hoeft te poetsen...echte reden was natuurlijk de bekende opschepfactor...

 

Maar die Jag...ik vind 'm mooi!
