$200,000 Model Cars
Bonhams is Offering a Carved Ruby Dragster Model Car with a Gold Engine

For anyone who loves model cars, this $200k hand-made dragster by Luis Alberto Quispe Aparicio will definitely make you drool. This car has been modeled after the Green Black Prudhomme Dragster that was driven by Don ‘The Snake.’ The model car is made from hand-carved ruby with gold accents, obsidian tires, a rock crystal windscreen and a gold Chrysler 390 engine.

This one-of-a-kind model car comes with a price tag that could purchase a condo, and is most definitely not something normally seen on someone’s shelf. This extravagantly designed model vehicle is not only visually stunning, but it’s also an important part of racing history, since the actual car was one of the best known in the drag racing circuit in the 1960s.
