Liberace's gold Cadillac goes up for sale

August 27, 2013 12:00 AM

Have you ever wanted to own a car that was truly over the top? Then you may want to turn your attention to a 1931 Cadillac Golfer's Drop Head Coupe that was once owned by the legendary performer Liberace and will go up for auction in September. 

The Cadillac is certainly an eye-catching vehicle. It features an exterior body that is covered in 23.75-carat gold leaf, with platinum silver door handles on the outside and solid gold on the inside. White leather seats accent the metallic body, and many aspects of the controls, including the steering wheel, are also a pure white color. 

Much of the car repair that was designed to makeover the Cadillac was done in the early 1970s by its owner. Since then, the vehicle has changed hands multiple times and was even on display in Germany for 12 years. Now it is leaving a private collection and could command more than $100,000 in the auction. 

While there is no definitive proof that the vehicle once belonged to Liberace, the dazzling array of features certainly seems like something that would fit in with the famously glamorous musician. The car will go on the auction block at a Barons sale Sept. 17 in Surrey, England.
