The $5 million Lamborghini Aventador
Something (besides the price) doesn't seem quite right.
Also, it's one-eighth the size of a regular Aventador, and you can't drive it.
Yep, this $5 million piece is the new record-holder for the world's most expensive model car. The, um, artwork -- worth about 13 actual, drivable Aventadors -- goes up for auction this month at houses in NYC, Beijing, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The winning bidder also gets a piece of wall stone from Lambo's building in Italy, a first-design drawing of the car and engine, a piece of the engine prototype and a raging bull badge made entirely of precious stones.
In case you think this is utterly ridiculous, I should note that I forgot to mention that the doors and trunk open, and the wheels turn. The doors open! Worth every penny if you ask me.

$5 Million huh, where are you going to drive this thing where some pebble won't put a $100k chip in the paint. This is ridiculous.
What is even more rediculous is your comment, seeing as it is a model and can't be driven anywhere unless you are a G.I. Joe...
That $5,000,000 model car is totally worth the money.
I understand in full what you are trying to say, but I disagree. Call me archaic, but there is something about buying, painting, and assembling a kit yourself. If I have a model on the shelf, I want it to say what I can and can't do as a craftsman instead of how much money I can spend.
I have no doubt some shiek in Dubai will whip out his checkbook and give it to his son for Christmas to play with.
Perhaps my sentiment didn't translate well enough. Let's try this again:
