A Lamborghini Or A Picasso? What Would You Hang On Your Wall?

It may seem like an odd question, but if you’re Richard Moriarty who was tired of having his 1974 Lamborghini towed because the engine kept stalling, you’d choose to hang the car on a wall in your new home. And even with the engine removed and repurposed as a coffee table, the whole hanging operation still required the use of a 70-ton crane to lower the 1,000 pound car through a skylight to its final resting place.

The car currently hangs over a solid glass staircase (this guy’s got taste!) and actually connects to the home’s electrical system so all the lights in the vehicle can still be operated. Since he only paid about $60,000 for the car in the first place, his unique piece of art is actually considerably more affordable than a Picasso would be. And as you can tell, it gets him a lot more publicity.
