Owning a car used to be a great thing in the past but nowadays buying a car is not a big deal as people get car loans very easily. However there are still some parameters which a person keeps in mind while choosing a car and these parameters are – the car’s price, its average, how many people it can accommodate, etc. Nevertheless, there is a segment of customers who buy cars for maintaining their status and they don’t mind spending a huge amount for it. Moreover, usually they also love to have sports and luxury cars to add to their lavishness.
One such rich person has taken his love of having a sports car to the next level by owning the gold version of Ferrari car. A video is going viral on the Internet in which an Indian-American individual is seen flaunting his golden Ferrari in public and the crowd is capturing the beauty with their smartphone cameras.
A note in the video reads, “Indian-American with pure gold Ferrari car” and the video has also been shared by the chairman of the Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra.
Anand Mahindra is pretty active on the social media networks, especially on the micro-blogging site Twitter, and is known for sharing some great things with people but this time he seems to be a little upset with the owner of the Italian car Ferrari. While sharing the video, Anand Mahindra wrote, “I don’t know why this is going around on social media unless it is a lesson on how NOT to spend your money when you are wealthy…”

While some online users agreed with Anand Mahindra who himself heads automobile companies, there were several others who pointed out that it is not necessary for the car to be gold-plated because many people also use gold vinyl for this purpose. In fact, few netizens shared the photos of golden cars which they have seen on the Indian roads and here are the selected reactions:
It isn't made of gold. It's wrapped in a 3M or Avery Dennison Gold Chrome Vinyl wrap. The cost of wrapping the entire car woul be anywhere between USD700-2000.
Also, I am amazed how you, Mr. Mahindra, aren't aware of vinyl car wraps!!!

Money can buy a lot of things, it cannot cure stupidity.
There should be a program which educates rich investors about ways to earn happiness by spending it wisely.

Well, all that glitters is not gold! Do you think that this car is made of pure gold? Are you going to get your car covered with gold vinyl after seeing this?
