This unique Mercedes was stopping traffic yesterday (Mon) after its owner had it covered in crystals. The diesel Mercedes CLS is thought to be owned by a Russian woman who lives in London. And she has managed to outdo the Arab playboys who drive around the capital by having her car covered in thousands of Swarovski crystals. The Mercedes was parked outside a restaurant on Basil Street, near Harrods in Knightsbridge.

The diesel CLS, with its license plate reading "BAII BYY," truly came alive when day turned into night, and London's lights glistened off the fancy Merc's body. There is no word regarding how much Radionova spent on the transformation (she reportedly used $33,000 worth of faux diamonds), but the Russian-born student did take offense to the Mail saying she paid "just" £25,000 (about $41,000) for the vehicle, stating on her Facebook page that "the car is worth more than 25k."

With the crystal-encrusted Mercedes' newfound fame, it's sure to be worth more than that now, and if Radionova ever decides to sell the car, she claims all proceeds will go to charity. But for now it appears she will just enjoy her creation, saying that, "If you have the cash, why not do it?"

And unlike a bedazzled iPhone, a glass-covered Mercedes makes a far bigger statement – and a larger cut out of one's wallet.
