This $46,000 Car Key Is A Touch Extravagant

It isn’t very often that the keys to a car cost more than the car but this diamond-encrusted Mercedes-Benz key comes very close to the car’s sticker price.

This $46,000 Car Key Is A Touch Extravagant

Made by German company Selected Jewels, and so far only made for keys belonging to your relatively pedestrian Mercedes-Benz, it starts by replacing the standard plastic with a solid gold inset. Or platinum, if you’re being truly obscene. Then, just for good measure, 300 diamonds adding up to 3.14 carats are added.

While this ode to the Saudi Arabia flag is gorgeous, we’d be in the market for something a little more American. The colors on that key wouldn’t run, at least they better not, for that much money.
