Conspicuous consumption is a vice that wealthy Americans have down to a science, but it's safe to say that the richest members of the Middle Eastern elite have elevated it to an art.

The latest example that we've seen of said artistry is a Range Rover that has been elaborately festooned with coinage from some of the most oil-rich nations of the region. The work has been done by an outfit called Coins Car – we're hoping there's some witticism there that just doesn't translate into English – and has seen some 57,412 coins adhered to the surface of the SUV. Following the flag markers, we see that coins from Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia have all been represented, and with United Arab Emirates getting more real estate than the rest of the crew.

Scroll down for a 360-degree video look at the Coins Car Land Rover, or take a moment to browse the gallery of images plucked from the company's Facebook page.

        Not sure about the value, but if each one of those coins weighed as much as a standard US nickel (5 grams), that mod would add 633 pounds to the weight of the vehicle.

      Once you get past the "bling" of it all and then contemplate the technical aspect of the work, it becomes a remarkable work of art.

      This is just a showcase for a special occasion (and apparently a competition), the UAE National Day... wonder if it made first place...

      I think it is probably not that expensive for parts (coins) if it is in US pennies (1c), your typical paint job after an accident would cost more than this.

      Better a car covered in coins than a car bomb from the Middle East.

        I don't know why you got down voted for that face. At least that meme is better than any of BD's comments.

        First of all, the people of the middle east don't get your gas money. The Governments do and it's already cheaper than American soda, you want it for free ?!! I see a lot of American cars on the streets of the middle east and they don't call their drivers "car payers" yet you still use this stupid term " gas payer " as if you are special. We all pay for gas even in the middle east and at least we buy your **** back instead of paying for the military to invade other countries.

          How do you know what coutnry he/she lives in?? Assuming by your response you think they live in America or another country. If he/she lives in Europe or some place that buys oil there then your extra stupid on top of what you already are.

          @protovici I don't know if you get it or not but I don't care where he/she's from. I referred to the use of the term " gas payer money" as an excuse for people to throw their governments work on the whole people of the middle east or blame them for anything stupid they see over there. I used American as an example and suddenly I am to blame yet using Middle East in comments about specific incidents is OK..!!
