Three years after launching what it called the world’s cheapest car, Indian manufacturer Tata has unveiled a gold and jewel-encrusted Nano in Mumbai as a tribute to 5,000 years of Indian craftsmanship.

Thirty craftsmen using traditional skills were involved in the creation of the bejewelled vehicle using 80kg of 22 carat gold, 15kg of silver and it is inlaid with 10,000 semi-precious stones and gems. All that makes this Nano worth around $4.7 million (RM15 million)!

Unfortunately, all that glitter is not for sale. Bhaskar Bhatt, chairman of the Tata Group, said that the unique creation will be kept as a marketing tool by GoldPlus Jewellery.

Aat least it won’t be causing distractions on the road with all that bling!
