White Gold Bentley Upstages Emirati Gold Mercedes – How Ungreen!

A gold Bentley, and white gold Mercedes. What’s next – a gold Rolls Royce?

In a glitz race to see who owns the most outrageous symbol of unrestrained wealth, a white gold plated Bentley sports coupe was  recently featured at a United Arab Emirates auto show. The car, which takes on a yellow gold hue when displayed under special lighting, is still “under wraps” as far as pertinent details go. These details include how much gold went into making this car, which represents the limits of ostentatious wealth representation of a region of the world – where the creation of the wealth is due to how much fossil fuels can be pumped or siphoned out of the ground – or seabed, as the case may be.

Outclassed? Abu Dhabi White Gold Mercedes

The car is said to be a Bentley model 66GTS sports racing coupe that is powered by a 626 horsepower supercharged engine and capable of accelerating the car from 0 to 62 mph in only 3.5 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 230 mph, which is not at all eco-friendly.

Unlike our previous white gold-plated Emirate job, a Mercedes Benz V 10 Quad Turbo sports coupe with a 1,600 hp engine that runs on bio-fuel, this gold plated pride of British engineering runs only on the refined black stuff that is said to be one of the causes of both global warming and climate change, and causing a “warmer future” for us all.

Putting these types of cars in their proper places, it doesn’t appear that many types of green or energy saving autos are popular in countries where fuel is still plentiful and much less expensive than in other parts of world. This includes a Saudi-Korean gas guzzling SUV, called (for want of a better name) the Gazi.

The Gazi -5 mpg?

This car, the Gazi,  which  is being “specially designed” to meet the driving demands of   wealthy oil sheiks, may itself one day be gold plated as well.

But in respect to this gold plated Bentley, whose value is yet to be announced, at least it might be possible to make this car in hybrid version, to be more energy and environment conscious.

But then again, it’s like the old saying at a Rolls Royce dealership when the sales representative tells a prospective buyer: “my dear fellow –if you ask how much petrol this car consumes, it’s simply not for you!”

I suppose this can be said for a 626 hp white gold Bentley and a 1,600 hp white gold Mercedes Benz Quad Turbo; even if the latter actually runs on bio-fuel.

    Dear Good Friend,
    This is Mr Frank. Nana ,from Takwa Village in Obuasi, Ghana- West Africa.
    Actually, I am traditional Chief here in Ghana governing the Village of Obuasi where I have many hectare of land of Gold, inherited by my grandfathers.
    We have managed to dig out about this 250 KG which I wanted to use your assistance to sell in your country. I will advise you to look for more buyer because we are try to expand our mining strategy, that means we are trying to purchase a mining equipment which will be more easier after selling this 250 KG
    We have been selling to people who sell out to foreigners but I have discover that they are cheating us, that was why I decided to look for Direct buyers or foreign partner who will assist me in the selling of the product so that we can go into a long business relationship.
    I wait to hear from you so that I can send you FCO which will enable us to move ahead.
    My regards to your family

    I guess what you are trying to say Meme is that gold plated cars are not making the best use of our planet’s resources.

    Real planet lovers are now former believers and continued defense and support of Climate Change’s unstoppable warming is hurting the planet as it divides environmental efforts and stalls progressive social reforms. The UN had allowed carbon trading to trump 3rd world fresh water relief, starvation rescue and 3rd world education for just over 25 years of climate control instead of needed population control. Obama blew off climate change in his Feb. speech and none of his thousands of consensus scientists raised a fuss over it. They were paid, they don‘t care. Real scientists would be marching in the streets. This IS after all the biggest emergency ever, unstoppable warming, not bad weather. Why are the scientists not leading this insanity, instead of the politicians promising to lower the seas with taxes? If climate change was true these scientists would be on every news cast and every front page and on every talk radio show. This was our Iraq War of climate WMD’s. System Change, not climate change.
