Golden Audi R8 super car: It’s a gold rush in Dubai

Seems like it’s a gold rush in Dubai! While everything has turned plastic in California and elsewhere in the world, Dubai can afford the glitzy nod to hark back to the gold rush era. It surely comes as no surprise to spot a golden Audi R8 super car in, you know where. There’s all sorts of flashy stuff out there in Dubai that all eyes and radar can detect, but what sets this Audi apart form others is its stealth-like matte finish. The new monochromatic finish definitely calls for extensive staring at the vehicle. That’s a tantalizing blend of making us believe that such things do exist and I’ve been thinking a lot (lately) how it feeds on extravagant fantasy.
