From a certain vantage point, even the most upscale materials can seem second-rate. Genuine Alcantara leather? Common cloth. Real wood inlays? Nature’s refuse. Hand-trimmed suede? Outdated and tacky junk.
No, you haven’t experienced true luxury until you’ve sat in a car lined with real gold, and that’s exactly what TopCar’s Stinger GTR offers.
TopCar’s GTR is a modified version of the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, but this tuned sports car goes well beyond a set of wheels and shiny badges.
The inside is properly brilliant with an elegant, dignified color scheme, and parts of the cabin are lined with real, 24-carat gold. High gloss carbon fiber provides contrast to the eye-catching metal, and gorgeous color-matched stitching highlights the interior’s lines – even extending to the back seats.
The Porsche’s striking body kit is made from 24 class-A carbon fiber panels, and they result in an exterior that is 90 percent new. The kit took nine months to perfect, and due to the “high complexity of the project, TopCar specialists are only able to assemble two cars a month at their premises.”
Of course, because this is a 911 Turbo, the lavish upgrades extend beyond the aesthetic. The Russian company offers a performance package that can boost output by 60 horsepower and 96 pound-feet of torque, which puts the GTR somewhere around the 600-hp mark.
The price for the body kit alone is $57,377. However, if you’ve got Midas-like aspirations and the bank account to match, you’re in luck. TopCar will sell the whole car for a royal price of $339,345.
The Stinger GTR will be displayed at the 2015 Performance Car Show, which runs January 8th through 11th in Birmingham, England.
