If King Midas were around today, this would be his car. Because the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4's V12 engine, which is capable of a top speed of 217 mph and producing 700 hp, isn't enough to turn heads, the team at Prestige Imports of Miami decided to wrap the Italian supercar in a silky gold. It took the team 70 days and an undisclosed amount of bullion to turn the stock white Lambo into this slippery gold-finished product, but they did note that the price tag was over $50,000 -- the almost half-million dollar car not included. Named AU79, after gold's name on the periodic table of elements, you could easily see the company also going with the name C3PO, but after watching the short films showcasing its abilities on the dance floor you can see why it deserves its own identity. Enjoy more looks at this glistening beast of a car after the jump.
