We cannot remember just how many times we have banged on about how the Tata Nano is the cheapest car on the market, but all that is about to change. No, there is not a new vehicle that is about to take that crown away from the small Indian car; instead there is to be an even more expensive model. The shock is that it will cost more than a Bugatti Veyron.
The Tata Nano will cost about $2,500 in India and a new updated version is heading stateside for around $7,000. However, there is to be a special edition that will set you back a cool $4.6 million. So what will that extra few dollars give you? Well, as you would expect it has been encrusted with precious gems and gold to help celebrate the Gold Plus stores 5,000th anniversary, which Tata has gone into collaboration with for this project.
The powertrain would have had to be upgraded so that it can cope with the extra weight from the 22 karat gold, which weighs in at a staggering 176 pounds. There is also another 33 pounds of silver and 10,000 gems to dazzle anyone that dares come close to you. For the life of us we cannot think of anyone who would want to own such a motor, you will just be bringing even more attention to a car that is associated with cheapness?
You have to admire Tata as a company, because not only have they been able to corner a market because of them having the cheapest production car on the planet, but also the fact that they can also make it one of the most expensive as well.
