Who says money buys you taste or class? Not me.
Recently, William Gallas, a professional athlete, decided to buy himself a Mercedes McLaren, the fastest production car in the world.
William Éric Gallas is a French international footballer who currently plays for Arsenal in the English Premier League.
And what if I told you that while some people think that chrome rims are ostentatious, especially on a McLaren, Gallas believes that chrome rims aren't ostentatious enough.
Gallas decided to chrome his entire McLaren! Yes, the entire car is chromed out. It’s got to be joke, right?
Is it even street legal to drive a chrome covered car? Something tells me that anything that comes within a half mile of that giant mirror on a sunny day will be blinded for life.
By the way, the car's base price is almost $500,000. Who knows how much it cost to dip each piece of the car in chrome. It's got to be around $600,000 when it's all said and done.
Glad to see that pro athletes are buckling down during these tough economic times. Rumor has it that Gallas originally intended on buying a 45-foot solid gold yacht but instead settled for this little toy. That might have been even classier!
