    Wonder how much it would cost if it went on Google Play Books? Will need this huge Samsung Tablet to view it all though.

    That's by some margin the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen, and I've seen at least four things.


    Love it though.

    Just a tiny bit bigger and they could have turned the book into a fully functional car. Seems like a lost opportunity.

    I love how obscene it is. £200,000 for a book... though to be fair, you can choose the leather colour

    It may not represent good value, because it does not seem to feature 3D pop outs. Perhaps they had problems getting those to have functional opening doors and bonnet lids.

    This is a $250,000 book, and today I will tell you all about its quirks and features. :p

    Seriously though, according to the website buying the top edition also gets you a factory tour, club membership, an evening with Derek Bell and a stay in a posh hotel. So that's where all that money goes to...
