I came across this photo and the accompanying text is as follows:

"The 18K white gold used in this car Owned by Abu Dhabi, an oil billionaire , This stunning car features the newly developed V10 quad turbo with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque 0-100km/h in less than 2secs, 1/4 mile in 6.89 secs running on biofuel. That is NOT stainless steel.It is WHITE GOLD"

I doubt that any car made of gold could reach 100kph in less than 2 secs even if it was gold plated. Apart from it being an absurd and disgusting display of wealth I would love to have that torque rating in my 1HZ!!!

In "less than 2 seconds" would it not just sit there and burn rubber?

Cruiser, I smell BS on every part of the claims in the text. No-one can even identify the owner of the car, let alone find out about the specs.

The car was photographed outside a shopping mall in Dubai, so the entire description is just some pea-brain internet BS-artist shooting his mouth off.
The car is described on many other sites as being chrome-plated.

The quoted HP and speed figures come the Maxximus G-Force, a kit car with a twin-turbo Chev V8 in it. The Maxximus is essentially a dragster in a kit-car body, it can't be road-registered.

My money's on gloss metallic vinyl wrap and reflective window film.

Check these wraps
