Wouldn't it melt? 24k gold is very very soft and scratches easily and melts at lower temperatures than 10, 14 or even 18 karat gold. Looks okay, but too much of a potential hassle.

pure gold melts at 1063 degrees C. so it should be good as long as its not the engine block. but who would do that? wtf still a waste of money.

a kid told me that celicas handle like crap... i laughed

how thick is the gold plating?

I think Dion Sanders has(had) a 24krt gold CAR made from gold, it weighed like 8,000 lbs

Slow and pimping.

Just get some gold whistle tips laughsilly

wouldnt matter even if it did coz this car was built for this particular show. meaning the car only gets driven from the workshop to the exhbition center and thats probably it. as long as it looks good fer that show, thats all that would count. gotta remember that sometimes money isnt the issue with some of the modders and so they will do it just coz they CAN. and coz no one else will have it for that year. i bet you next year even more cars will have it at our autosalon
