40lbs of Gold On A Porsche 996 Turbo Cabriolet

Posted by

40 pounds of gold on a 997 porsche turbo cabriolet

This is so over the top insane that I had to comment on it. 40lbs of gold was added to this Porsche. The owner was clearly too poor to add 40lbs of platinum or diamonds so he settled for gold…maybe next time he can step his game up to more exotic materials once a fully gold plated car is played out and relegated to the poor folk in his social circle. Or perhaps, just maybe for this owner’s next car he’ll simply clearcoat a couple hundred thousand dollars of actual money into the bodywork and make a finish out of that.

What I will say though is that the detail work is really quite beautiful. I happen to really like the wing in the top picture. Still…you gotta wonder, who is stepping out of a car like this when it rolls up?

Top Secret Gold Roll Cages

Posted by

Another mini-project we’ve been working on is introducing “Top Secret Super Roll Bar” gold roll cages to the world. We just got our first one and I think its pretty nice. In essence its a collaboration between Cusco and Top Secret. So the cage design and functionality is Cusco, but to Top Secret’s specification and color. My goal is to offer these for comparable prices to the current USA cusco blue cages. At this point we’re pretty much there. If anyone wants a Top Secret roll cage for their car, let me know and I can probably order it for you from Top Secret Japan! (You know I’m going to rock one of these in my gold S2000, I’m just deciding which one to order…)

Check the pics of our first cage, a simple 4 point job for a S2000.
