It's said these 24k gold plated springs were originally fashioned for a customer in Dubai, who wanted his Ferrari F430 Spyder to stand out among the emirate's patently ungilded supercars. Now, H&R Springs, which came up with the plating process, is offering the springs for a premium of 2,000 euros over the cost of stock springs. You just know the next car to sport these will probably be worth a quarter of their value.
