It is not often you get to see a Gold Ferrari in London.  That is exactly what I managed to spot on the weekend though.  Customised Ferraris are pretty commonplace in London, especially in highly affluent areas such as Knightsbridge in West London.

Recently the trend with the super rich has become to being as absurd as possible with your colour choice.  No longer is it just good enough to have a Ferrari.  A statement needs to be made to separate your super car from the next super car parked down the street.  What better statement than painting your car gold!  (Before you ask, unfortunately as far as I can work out, this isn’t Richard Baxter’s new car).


After a little detective work it turns out this car belongs to Iraqi Kickboxing champion Riyadh Al-Azzawi.
