It was bound to happen at some point in time. Now a gold-wrapped car has taken to the streets and the driver is none other than rap artist Flo Rida. Bling has been elevated to a different style level with the debut of a golden Bugatti Veyron. To further push the envelope the European machine has been outfitted with a set of golden rims. According to some reports the 24 inch Forgiato wheels are even crafted from 24K gold. With a hefty $1.7m price tag this report is most likely correct.
A 2011 DUI charge and a 2012 tax bill for more than a million bucks have not given Flo Rida any cause to consider tricking out his ride with less costly bling. In fact the rapper seems to be dedicated to standing out on the streets. A flashy gold Bugatti is going to get noticed. This may not be good for a driver with the baggage that Flo Rida has been carrying lately. It should also be pointed out that the value of a car depreciates over time. Wonder if this Bugatti is going to depreciate with every mile?
Financial and traffic court problems make him an easy target when out in the public eye and this golden automobile is going to be impossible to ignore. The rapper had best make sure he settles the bills with Uncle Sam; and he could certainly use a designated driver when he parties.
The gold Bugatti's exterior covering was created by Metro Wrapz. The company is based in the appropriately named town of Hollywood, Fl. If Flo Rida was hoping to attract public attention then this stunt was a sure way to grab headlines.
