Tata, an Indian millionaire group, presented one of the most expensive cars in the world, three years after launching the cheapest car, the Nano.
Using the same prototype as the Nano, this version was covered with gold and precious stones, valued at $ 4.5 million, where the company used 80 kilograms of 22 carat gold, 15 kilograms of silver, and precious (such as diamonds, pearls, rubies or emeralds) and semiprecious stones.
“We want to pay tribute to the 5 000-year history of the jewels in India. To design the car, we used 14 jewelry techniques,” said Gaurav Khanna, a spokesman for the jewelry company that belongs to the group Goldplus Tata.
Today, the original Nano is still one of the world’s most economical cars costing $ 2,900, but sales are still low (about 1202 units in August) due to security breaches.
