Lamborghini Veneno or an Island: What Can You Get for $4.6M?
The Lamborghini Veneno was officially unveiled, with a starting price that translates into $4.6 million. You read that correctly. While that amount seems totally impossible for something with four wheels and a motor, the amount of research and effort to mold that carbon fiber around a spectacular V12 engine apparently all adds up to that astronomical amount. It got us thinking, what else could you buy for $4.6M? You’d be surprised: The World's Most Expensive Hotel:
If you are at the Geneva Motor Show, and a member of the press, chances are that you are NOT staying at the President Wilson Hotel. Even less likely is it that you would be staying in the Royal Penthouse Suite. At $52,000 per night, it is the most expensive hotel room in the world. With more than a few million to blow, it may seem like you could stay there indefinitely, but you could only really stay for 88 nights. Don’t worry; you’ll have $24,000 left over for some serious room service.
Peyton Manning's House:
What if you were interested in more permanent residence? How does the home of a professional athlete sound? Last year, the Denver Broncos acquired a new quarterback in Peyton Manning. The new Mile High QB then needed to acquire new Mile High digs, so he scooped up a massive seven-bedroom home on 3.37 acres of land. It even has an elevator. Price? $4.6 million.

A Really Expensive TV:
One of the best-kept secrets about Denver is how much warmer it is than people think. What a better way to take advantage of the nice weather than to sit outside and watch TV. A company called C SEED has created the world’s largest outdoor television. It has a 201-inch screen and was crafted with the help of Porsche Design. It is deployable, and accordions out. It also fetches $655,000, which means you can buy seven of these impressive units.
Ok, so since you are reading BoldRide, you may care about cars more than a nice TV or hotel room. How about a rare classic car? How about the most expensive movie car of all time? Well the original Batmobile from the Batman TV series recently fetched $4.6 million at the Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ.
A Floating Island:
Televisions, classic cars, and mansions– these all seem far too pedestrian. If you would truly like to enter a rarified club, you would need to own an island. Islands can go for as much as $10 million and are also permanent, so you may want to consider something more mobile. Orsos Island is a mega-yacht/floating island. With a price of $4.6 million, it will be 120 feet long, and have 3,300 square feet of livable space, but you’ll have to wait. Osros will not be completed until the end of 2013.
Perhaps you don’t have time for that. Perhaps, you only are interested in time itself. Well, the best way to tell time would be the Breguet et Fils precision watch. It was hand-crafted in 1814 by Abraham-Louis Breguet– known as the “Watchmaker of the Kings.” It was sold in August of 1814, and exchanged hands many times, eventually being sold by the Christie’s auction house in May of 2012, for the princely sum of $4.6 million.
World's Most Expensive Pizza:
All this talk of money is making us hungry. With $4.6 million, we could purchase a hell of a lot of happy meals. Then again, we’re trying to act like we have money, so we’ll opt for the $1,000 pizza from Nino’s Bellissima in Manhattan. The pie includes four types of caviar and sliced lobster tail on a bed of crème fraiche. Only the dough is cooked and the rest is applied cold. You could place 4,600 orders of the uber-pizza.
2013 Toyota Camry:
Eating expensive pizza would be a very fun thing to do as a millionaire, but what would be the most boring? Easy– buy a Toyota Camry. With a starting price of $22,235, you could buy 206 of these five-passenger family sedans. We would much rather have one Lamborghini Veneno.
