Maisto Swarovski Lamborghini Murcielago
I stumbled across this awesome collectors car several years ago and ever since it's been in my dreams. This scale model car from Maisto has been covered in thousands of clear Swarovski crystals.
This Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 has been created in 1:18 scale and is decorated in an eye watering 7,000+ Swarovski Crystal Elements, the majority of which appear to be clear crystals. I can spy a few jet black crystal elements in the photo above though.
This isn't a toy car per se and is suitable for collectors aged 14+. It's a faithful reproduction of the full size Murcielago only with some added bling. The recommended retail price is £995 but given you get 7,000 Swarovski crystals for that it works out as great value for money. It's the perfect gift for a petrol head.
