It is a very confused design, imo.
Even taking away the gold would not make it look good.
The overly-sized insect-with-Downs-Syndrome front end doesn't match the much more graceful and petít rear.
A sloppy chop of it in something that could barely be called red.

But I though gold was really good at absorbing heat.
Why wouldn't they make it out of gold?

doesn't gold block infra red or some other such electronic emanations, i thought EA-6B's had their cockpit canopy's lined with a thin film of gold

the wheels look photoshopped, throw some old school Borrani's on to complete the retro look

I love the front intake design. Not much else to love.

it reflects radar waves too.
The F22 and F16, among others I'm sure, use it too.

the reason you dont' make cars out of solid gold is gold is a very VERY soft metal.
Park the car in the garage for a month and by the time you go to drive it out the panels are all droppy ... think of a Salvador Dali painting of a Porsche

The Wal-Mart CEO bought a gold tacky looking Ferrari? Really? No I guess that fits.

this Ferrar is just painted in "gold" color, it isn't made of gold. And it's only a moke up, by now.
