MOSCOW, April 3 (RIA Novosti) - A Porsche 911 plated with real gold and worth an estimated $600,000 was stolen on Friday afternoon in the southeast of Moscow, a police source said.

The officer said that the owner of the exclusive vehicle had decided to sell the car and found a client via the Internet. The client arrived to take a look at the "Golden Porsche" and after two laps of test drive on a parking lot near the Volgogradskoye highway sped off in an unknown direction.

"After waiting for him to return, the owner turned to the police for help," the source said.

According to the owner, he used some 20 kg (about 45 lbs) of real gold to upgrade his car, which had an initial price of $120,000.
