Swarovski stones and crystals can make anything precious., even if it is a modest 1961 Vespa scooter. A factory in Munich has created the most valuable Vespa in the world. It is not the scooter which is valuable in itself but the Swarovski stones that have made it unusual and unique piece that you can own. A total of 150,000 Swarovski stones and crystals have been used to adorn the silver Vespa.
Rudolf Probst, the spokesman of the company who have turned the scooter into a work of art said that it is our way of paying tribute to the legend of Italian Vespa. The company specializes in fabric finishing but has gone out of the way to create this masterpiece. The spokesman explained while talking to DNN-Online.
The Vespa of the 1961 vintage is in running condition and a license for the same has been obtained for Europe. But according to the authorities at the TUV the surface of the artwork is deemed to be dangerous and hence can not be authorized to ply on the roads. In any case the company is very happy with the results and have already commissioned another project similar in nature. This time they have taken up a car and are decorating it with stones.
