How much for a chrome Lamborghini?

Bidding is over $225,000 for 50 Cent's car--and it's only chrome paint.

eBay

The last time we even thought about a chrome-covered car was last year, upon being blinded by a very shiny BMW . Silly us--we thought the trend might have begun and ended there.

A fully chromed 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago is being offered on eBay with just 1,414 miles on it. The listing says the car "has been the subject of numerous magazine articles" and "has had one celebrity owner," which BornRich identifies as 50 Cent. (Clearly Crave needs to update our reading materials.)

But unlike the Beamer, this one has only chrome paint, not the real stuff. That must be why it's going for the bargain bid of only $225,300 as of this writing.
