Okay, so maybe a Lambo isn’t exactly an “everyday item”, but this is worth a mention. Back in 2012, Dubai’s Lamborghini showroom unveiled the first-ever gold, platinum and diamond-encrusted Lambo. The car is covered in thin sheets of solid 24k gold around the exterior with a gold-laden interior. The car, which was eight times smaller than a regular Lamborghini, was priced at $7.8 million.
