The luxury brands become hyper active during the Christmas season and often come up with lavish and even outlandish gift ideas. Goldgenie, based in London, is something of a specialist in creating luxury gifts and can practically gold plate anything. Golden watches and mobile phones have become common so this year they have brought out a men’s racing bicycle covered completely in 24 carat gold plating. It is the most comprehensive job of gold plating you will ever see as even the handlebar, spokes and chain has also been gold plated in pure gold. As a result it has not only become the most luxurious bike but the most expensive bike carrying a price tag of a whopping £250,000.
It is not only the most expensive bike but more expensive than a Ferrari and will surely give bragging rights to the owner. Its uniqueness and golden finish makes it a greater status symbol than luxury cars. Goldgenie has gone a step further and offered to bling the golden bike further and transform the bike into the ultimate once in a lifetime luxury gift. If the customer so desires they can embellish the bike further and encrust it with diamond and other precious stones. Frank Fernando, director of Goldgenie is confident of finding the potential customer who would be willing to go the whole hog and back the creation of the ultimate bike most lavishly finished.
The bike was taken out for a spin by Goldgenie near its offices in Westminster and it proved to be a real head turner. It has created a buzz and it seems its huge price tag is not a deterrent for potential customers. Mr. Fernando revealed that only one unit has been produced so far but additional orders are already coming in. The most popular gift items made by Goldgenie include gold-plated iPhones and Beats by Dre headphones studded with Swarovski crystals. They had also created a 24-carat gold replica of James Bond’s signature Walther PPK handgun. They also get very unusual enquiries like a 24-carat gold plated toilet including the seat and the commode and also a 24-carat gold vibrator.
