Most expensive model car: Lamborghini Aventador

A 1/8th scale model of a Lamborghini Aventador built with gold, platinum, carbon fiber and diamonds by Robert Guelpen, a German car model specialist, is set to be auctioned in New York later this month; it was valued at ($4.7) million - setting the new world record for the Most expensive model car, according to World Records Academy

  The Guinness world record for the most valuable model car is a Bugatti Veyron Diamond Edition that retails at £2 million ($2.9 million), weighs approx 7 kg (15 lb) and is made in 24k gold and platinum with a diamond front from 7.2 carats (1.44 g; 0.05079 oz)and took 2 months to finish.

  Guinness World Records also documented the world record for the smallest powered car, set by Nippondenso of Kariya, Japan, which created a motorized model of Toyota's first passenger car, the 1936 AA sedan, which is 4.785 mm. (0.188 in.) long, 1.730 mm. (0.068 in.) wide and 1.736 mm. (0.068 in.) high.
   In case you're wondering, the model's probable selling price of $4.7 million is more than 10 times the price of a brand new Aventador.

  The price of materials alone for the world's most costly model car is well over 3 million dollars. A portion of earnings from the auction will be donated to charity.
