element palazzo

Not all rides need to be powerful to be bold. Some are bold just for their design and, in the case of one RV that recently sold in Dubai, for being the world’s most expensive.

That’s the claim being made for the 40-foot-long eleMMent Palazzo, from Austrian company Marchi Mobile. It sold for a purported asking price of $3 million. That is somewhat understandable considering its outside is supposedly covered in gold.

The Rs 18 crore palace on wheels sold in Dubai

Yahoo India5 August 2014

The world's most expensive mobile home has gone on sale in Dubai for $3 million, approximately INR 18 crores.

The humongous, 40-foot-long eleMMent Palazzo from Austrian company Marchi Mobile is covered with gold and comes with a ton of luxury features, including a 40-inch flat screen, a pop-up cocktail lounge, a fireplace, a master bedroom, and underfloor heating.

But it is still a lot of money for something that could be considered a lot of ugly – at least on the outside. It looks like one of those creatures of the deep caught on camera during the raising of the Titantic. To drive something this hideous you need to have some deep pockets.

However, as your mom used to tell you (unless she was really shallow) beauty is on the inside. That’s where the element Palazzo shines. It comes with its own, as CNN describes it, “portable, push-button, pop-up rooftop terrace.” It also features a pop-up cocktail lounge, a fireplace, a master bedroom, and underfloor heating.

The amazing vehicle could also cater to any multi-millionaire or global superstar on the road. It's also available in white (shown here).
