You’ve probably heard about Daria Radionova’s super-sparkly car by now. You might have even been blinded by it while driving round Knightsbridge.
The 21 year-old Russian student has had her 2011 Mercedes CLS 350 covered in hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals. It took two months of 12-hour days to get the ‘unique’ look.
Daria says: ‘It has only just been finished and everywhere I go people stop to have a look at it. It gets lots of attention from people walking by and in cars. Sometimes I think they might crash.’
Now don’t start thinking the student’s only into flashing her cash around central London – she has a good heart. She posted a video of a Moldovan animal charity she’d visited on her Facebook yesterday, explaining she was going to sell off the car for charity today.
She writes: ‘Just wanted to share with you the video I have recorded few years ago about homeless pets in Moldova…and tomorrow my Baby Mercedes will go to an auction and the money I will give for charity.’
If you can cover the cost of £25,000 worth of car AND hundreds of thousands of crystals then get bidding!
