Maisto & Swarovski Deliver Crystal-Studded Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

Maisto Diamond Studded Lamborghini Murcielago

Some people are just not content with custom paint jobs and extreme accessorization. They need some more edge. Something with a little more bite. How about covering your Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 in 7,668 Swarovski crystals? But wait, wouldn’t you need hundreds of thousand of crystals to cover this supercar? Yes, of course. What we are really talking about here is actually a special creation from toy company Maisto that’s designed to sit on your desk and not in your driveway.

For only the small sum of £1,500 ($2,500), 550 of these miniature Lamborghini replicas will be offered in Europe. The marketing spin is that this will make an excellent Christmas gift. My guess is that it will be purchased by the wives of men who already have a Murcielago LP 640 at their house, because who else would want or be able to afford such an expensive toy?

We’ve seen a real life Mercedes SL600 plated with diamonds as well as a Hot Wheels car covered in $140,000 worth of Swarovski diamonds, so this is really no surprise. However, don’t be shocked if a month from now somebody catches a shot of a full size LP640 all crystal-bedazzled outside the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
