Renowned luxury designer Alexander Amosu is back with his newest luxury sensation and this time it is a solid 18-carat gold scooter! Created on demand by a Middle Eastern client (surprise, surprise!) the two-wheel scooter is made up of 13,888 grams of pure gold and was sold for £250,000 ($391,467). The buyer is Amosu’s regular customer who already owns a gold phone, gold Rolls Royce and has parts of his house designed in gold.
If you’re tempted to scoot around town in gold wheels, the good news is there is a limited edition 24 carat gold version of the two-wheel scooters. Available in yellow, pink and white gold, the 24ct version costs just £999 ($1,564) and weighs approximately 13kg. A full-charge, which takes only two hours, provides enough power to cover a 15 mile range at a maximum speed up to 9.3mph.
Amosu has created some of the world’s most expensive products including a the first and most expensive iPhone2 which was sold for £89,000 ($139,300), a Blackberry phone in solid gold and encrusted in diamonds sold for £120,000 ($187,900), the world’s most expensive suit which was sold at £75,000 ($117,440) and the most expensive champagne in the world valued at $1.8 million.
