Lightbulb Gold(finger's) Mercedes C63 spotted in... where else? Dubai

Filed under: Sedans/Saloons, Sports/GTs, Mercedes-Benz, Special/Limited Editions


Click above for a high-res gallery of the gold C63

This United Arab Emirates-registered gold-mirror-finish Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG was caught at the Bling on Wheels Show, otherwise known as the valet area at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. While we have nothing untoward to say about someone who decks out his/her ride in any manner desired, we are always intrigued when someone looks to have spent the worth of a car - on top of the price of the car itself - on "beautification."

There is some debate as to whether this is a real paint job or a wrap, but parking your gold-wrapped C63 next to a genuinely chrome SLR would be shamefully ludicrous. A C63 AMG goes for about 300,000 AED (about $82,000 USD). Unless gold paint bubbles out of the ground as well, a liquid gold paint job has to cost a good portion of that. And all for a C63? Really? We won't ask whether it looks good... we'll just guide you to the gallery of high-res images below. Hat tip to AB reader Chad.

Well, that just goes to show, having a lot of money is no guarantee of good taste . . . .

I am frequently blinded by sun glare off rear windows. I can only imagine the treat it must be driving anywhere near that car in sunny Dubai.

EDIT: I wonder why they didn't continue the gold with the wheels.

Mercedes should do what Rolls Royce used to do. If an owner did this to a Roller the company would take the car back.

This owner needs to go to a re-education camp!

Thankyou! I've been saying that for years. I can't stand seeing "blinged out" SL's and G's in music videos.....

Thanks!
If I recall he ended up painting it this way when he lost a lawsuit from RR for painting the entire car including the trim flat black...
