This shiny object is a custom Bugatti Veyron owned by rapper Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard. The $1.7 million car started out life in a pearlescent white hue but Flo Rida eventually got bored of this and went with a chrome finish. Clearly, just owning a Veyron wasn’t attention grabbing enough for the rapper.

But Flo Rida’s lust for shiny cars didn’t end there.

Perhaps determined to outdo the owner of this red chrome Veyron, Flo Rida recently called Florida’s Metro Wrapz and requested an even tackier flashier finish: gold chrome.   :huh:

Of course, you can’t drive a gold Veyron and not have matching gold wheels, so Flo Rida also had Metro Wrapz install a set of gold-plated wheels from Forgiato.

Metro Wrapz, whose slogan is “Go Chrome or Go Home,” has also done work for numerous celebrities including Lebron James, Rashad Jones and Pitbull. Some of the company’s other creations include a Hulk-themed Lamborghini Gallardo and a fleet of cars for the Miami Dolphins football team.

I don't understand why people buy Veyrons - they are known for top speed, but you can't achieve that on public roads. I can't think of any other hypercar that is less practical. At least the other hypercars handle a lot better, look better, are cheaper, etc. $10k a tire, and $60k for wheels which are required after every three tire changes, screw that. Give me a Hennessy Venom GT or Agera R, they will both obliterate this

Doesn't matter what finish you have on this car, it is still ugly.

Why couldn't you achieve top speeds on public roads?
