India’s “Goldman” & his gold wrapped luxury cars

Indians and their love for gold is something that is discussed around the world. We are one of the largest consumers of this metal and it is often used as a status symbol. Gold is often used as ornaments and jewellery but you wouldn’t think about a gold car until and unless you are in Dubai. We have seen several images of rich people from Dubai where they have plated their cars with gold. Well, to our surprise, we found that someone was following a similar trend in India too. Sunny Waghchure is known as “Gold Man” beacuse of his love for Gold. He is from Pimpri-Chinchwad region near Pune, Maharashtra and has a collection of cars that get Gold wrap.

Mercedes-Benz E Class

The first car on the list is a Mercedes-Bnez E-Class luxury sedan. Sunny has got the whole car wrapped in gold. The sedan seen here in the images belogs to an older generation. The E-Class sedan is one of the popular models from Mercedes-Benz in India and the version seen here in the image was actually launched in 2012.

Audi Q7

Audi Q7 was once the flagship sedan from the manufacturer. We now have the current generation Q7 available in the market but, the version Sunny owns is previous generation one. This is a full size SUV and still has a lot of road presence. Sunny decided to wrap this full size SUV completely in Gold. It is a popular SUV among Bollywood celebrities in India.

Jaguar XF

Jaguar XF is a mid-size luxury sedan and it rivals with cars like Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Volvo S90 in the segment. Just like the Mercedes nd Audi, Sunny has wrapped this luxury sedan in Gold as well. It comes with several features like retractable AC vents, pop up rotary gear knob and so on. The sedan seen here in image was bought back in 2017.

Audi A3

Audi A3 was an entry level sedan from the German car manufacturer. It was discontinued from market when the BS6 emission norms were implemented. It was offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. Sunny had bought this sedan when it was initially introduced in India. Given his love for gold, it is highly likely that he would have got this sedan wrapped in Gold as well. Although no pictures of the wrapped sedans are available online.

Land Rover Range Rover Vogue

Along with the cars that we have mentioned above, Sunny also owns a Range Rover Vogue. This is an older generation Vogue and just like Audi Q7, this is also a popular SUV among celebsrities in India. In the picture the SUV is not wrapped but, we are once again assuming that he would have done that on this vehicle too. Modification on a vehicle talks a lot about the personality of its owner. In this case, Sunny’s love for Gold is what is reflecting on the cars. Some of you might like it while some may find it very odd.
