In what looks like too much Bling, this Mercedes SL was spotted in a recent overseas autoshow. A few months ago, an Audi A8 was made entirely out of Silver for the sheik in Dubai.. Is this something similar? I'd prefer mine in stealth black...

Implications - While many were hit hard by the recession, there is still a luxury class existent in society. This developing trend of blinged-out, luxe products signals towards the fact that businesses that have traditionally aligned themselves to a high income consumer should continue to do so. People still crave extravagance and just because there has been a dip in the economy, it doesn't mean that luxury doesn't live on. Stats for Diamond-Covered Mercedes SL Trending: Older & Buzzing
