Why spend over a quarter of a million dollars on a Lamborghini when you can have a miniature model for 12 times the price? That's the thinking behind a new model car that will appear at the Frankfurt Auto Show at the end of September.

Hailed the world's most expensive and precious car model by Guinness World Records, the creation is based on the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 and is decked out in gold, platinum and diamonds, reports Business Insider.

Jokes aside, this might actually be worth investing in. Cars are known to devalue the second they leave the lot, but if the bejeweled car's materials alone are worth a total of $2.7 million, this is one car that will go up in value after purchase.

Sotheby's will auction the car in December in either New York or Dubai with bids starting at $4.7 million, reports Wired. Or you might want to purchase it at the show, but that will cost you an an extra $1.3 million.
