If you think that a solid 18k carat gold electric scooter, which costs £250,000 ($391,467) is joke, you’re wrong. Such an object exists. The famous luxury designer Alexander Amosu made this luxury sensation for an unnamed Middle Eastern client who paid this staggering amount for the fantasy item to become reality. His two-wheel scooter is made up of 13,888 grams of pure gold. This same client also owns a gold-coated phone and Rolls Royce, so it was only natural to get the matching scooter.
It took two and a half months to create the solid-gold shell that sits on the wheels. The shell was crafted in two parts that split in the middle to match the scooter’s center-rotating design.
Thanks to its 36 Volt 4.4 A Samsung Lithium long-lasting battery with 700 watts of power, this particular electric scooter is capable of doing a 15 mile travel range on one charge. Battery charges up fully in just 2 hours.
Its lightweight frame weighing just 24 lbs helps the scooter go at a maximum speed of 9.3 mph.
Amosu liked the result of the project so much, he decided to make some more accessible versions for the rest of the world. You can pick up plated versions in yellow, pink or white gold for just £999 or $1,564.
