A London-based Russian business student took the phrase "bling, bling" to another level when she encrusted every inch of her Mercedes' exterior in Swarovski crystals.
Daria Radionova, 21, paid laborers to apply 1 million crystals by hand to the 2011 Mercedes CLS 350.
"I love it!" she enthusiastically said via email. But apparently not enough to keep it. She's selling it on eBay less than a month after commissioning it. The auction ends Thursday; the current highest bid stands at £154,600, or about $248,000.
"I wanted to create something special and to help homeless pets by selling the item in an auction," Radionova said. "I will give a part of the sale to Manchester (Dogs' Home); it was burned down a few weeks ago, and to a Moldova dogs home," she said.
Radionova didn't disclose exactly how much will go to charity. The Daily Mail reports she'll donate 10 percent.
