While you can’t judge the taste of covering a car in a layer of gold vinyl, you wouldn’t actually even dare to think about doing it in this case. We’re talking here about Riyadh Al-Azzawi – an undefeated kickboxing world champion, so he can actually do anything he wants to his car – I won’t be the one judging him.
With a record of 47 bouts, all won and holding to his world champion title since winning it in 2008, Al-Azzawi is an Iraqi fighter that knows how to attract a crowd – he displayed his newly gold covered £200,000 Ferrari 458 Spider while training at a local gym in Kensington, London. And if you wonder how much the makeover cost – it was a mere 4,000 pounds. A good way to make a bang for the buck.
And if you’re still judging his taste from the comfort of your homes, you should not that although looking strikingly goldish now, the 458 Italia Spider keeps its pace as one of the best supercar sin the world, with its roaring 4.5-litre V8 engine, good for 562 bhp and a 0-100 km/h sprint of 3.4 seconds.
Al-Azzawi’s kickboxing history starts at the age of 13, with six home championships, two Arabic titles, two British and one European. He moved to claim the world one in 2008 and never let go after – with 47 wins and 35 knockouts.
