We have all had those dreams when we were younger: I want to be an astronaut, I want to be a marine biologist, I want to drive around in a giant golden egg inlayed with silver and diamonds(manufactured in India). Well, thanks to the good (and possibly a tad bit eccentric) people at Tata Motors, that last one can finally become a reality.
Tata recently unveiled it’s impressive and stunning Nano Gold Plus. It is just like the regular Tata Nano, which sells in India for roughly $2,500, and then saddles it with 176 lbs of 22 karat gold, 33 lbs of silver, and over 10,000 precious gems and stones. This raises the more than fair price of $2,500 to a slightly more costly $4.6 million. That second price may seem a bit high, but when you drive down the street in a car laden with 176 lbs 22 karat gold, 33 lbs of silver, and over 10,000 precious gems and stones, and people stop and stare, and think what they are going to think, well, you will know where the extra still roughly $4.6 million went. Will the gold melt under a hot Phoenix Arizona sun? Well, only one way to find out.
As of now this vehicle is a one off, meaning that this is it, if you want to get one, you have to buy the only one. It doesn’t appear that Tata is planning on making any more, if for no other reason than that this appears to be a very clever marketing scheme to draw attention to the Tata family’s Gold Plus Jewelery stores.
Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts should plan on attending the Phoenix Arizona International Auto Show to learn about the most recent concepts and innovations from the industry’s most cutting edge design outfits, taking place at the Phoenix Arizona Convention center over Thanksgiving weekend.
