You know that saying, "it’s worth its weight in gold" – well never has it been more appropriate, for much of this 1958 Austin Healey’s delectable detailing is made of the stuff.

That’s right. 'Goldie', as the car is known, features gold-plated brightwork, as well as mink fur upholstery and ivory switchgear (Pimp My Ride 1950s-style, anyone?), and it could be yours for a cool $1 million. Around £600,000.
