After a really long time I wanted to do a post about the most expensive things (I did one way back in January on what to do if you have extra money to spend), rather than my usual bargain hunting posts. I figure that one really should be aware of all the really expensive things in life in order to understand that a lot of people really have money to burn! So to start off with, the most expensive….
Dress, is a dress of Marilyn Monroe that in 1999, fetched over $1.26 million at a New York auction. Monroe wore the dress to celebrate John F. Kennedy’s 45th birthday at a spectacular party in Madison Square Garden when she sang “Happy Birthday”. She had supposedly been sewn into the skin-tight dress for the occasion.
Car is The Bugatti Veyron 16.4. This is the most powerful, most expensive, and fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a proven top speed of over 400 km/h (407 km/h or 253 mph). The car is built by Volkswagen AG subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles SAS and is sold under the legendary Bugatti marque. It is named after racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm. The Veyron features a W16 engine-16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders and costs, hold your breaths…. $1,700,000.
Home, will be the 27-storey skyscraper being built in Mumbai by Mukesh Ambani, the richest person in India. The the world’s largest and costliest home will cost about two billion dollar, according to Forbes magazine. The only present day home to even remotely compare to this is the high-rise property currently on the market, the 70 million dollar triplex penthouse at the Pierre Hotel in New York, designed to resemble a French chateau, and climbing 525 feet in the air.
Dessert is the “Frozen Haute Chocolate,” a $25,000 chocolate sundae created by Serendipity 3 and Jeweler Euphoria of New York and . The new dessert is made from a blend of 28 cocoas from all around the world and is infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. It is topped with whipped cream, more gold and a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for $2,600 a pound. It even comes with souvenirs, an 18K gold bracelet with a carat’s worth of diamonds that rests at the base of the goblet and a gold spoon set with white and chocolate-colored diamonds.
So we took care of food, clothing, shelter and transport in our most expensive post. Any other most expensive things you want to share (information about)?
