I’ll Be Pimped… A MINI Cooper Adorned With a Million Swarovski Crystals!


The characterization “bling-bling” is definitely an understatement for this Cooper. Dubbed “American Icon”, the glittering MINI is the work of CrystalArt and it’ll be on display at the upcoming National Stationery Show, May 20-23, at NY City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. It features over one-million Swarovski crystals in 50 different shades of color. Each crystal was scrupulously hand placed and it took four people 6 months to complete. The designs on the car portrays American scenery and symbols including The Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore etc. The total cost of the “American Icon”? A crystal and a dollar… -More Images after the jump

Great idea, disappointing execution...
They took 2 beautiful things - a MINI, and crystal, and produced an amazingly expensive example of tackiness.

I'm sure many will be dazzled, however...

What an expensive piece of corny junk. It's like a shrunken redneck truck. Tasteless.
