1972 Bugazzi Custom Coupe

 George Barris (Batmobile from the 1960s TV series) built the car you see above: a Bugazzi, which started out as a 1972 Lincoln Mark IV.
it's been slathered in thirty coats of pearl lacquer and trimmed with 24-carat gold-leaf, hand-applied pinstripes. Up front are two lanterns where the headlights would normally go. Inside, you'll find gold, suede upholstery, Persian rugs, Italian doorhandles mounted on Italian marble slabs, 
a television, and a back seat wet bar. 
There were but 12 built, and not only were they bought by celebrities and the owner of the Mustang Ranch.
