Denmark: The world's most expensive cars rev up for Gumball 3000

Copenhagen saw the streets lined with the world's most expensive cars as Gumball 3000 started on Saturday. Many of the esteemed guests arrived by luxury boat to the Copenhagen Opera House where they were welcomed by a performance from rapstar Eve. Guests then got to bid on the first lot of the Gumball and Christie's charity auction - aiming to ride away behind the wheel of a unique automobile.

Over 120 exotic cars stepped on the gas to make it to the event, including a replica of Batman's Tumbler Batmobile commissioned by the members of Saudi Arabia's Team Galag and made by Parker Brothers Concepts, who already construct vehicles for a reality television series called Dream Machines about expensive, notable cars. The 'Glamouflage' Lamborghini V12 took a striking position on the car stage, highlighting the event's characteristic for concept cars.

With the cars set to take a 3000 mile trek across 13 countries all the way to Denmark to Monaco. There are seven stops en route in Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Austria and finally rests at the distinguished Monte Carlo. Every year the route for the Gumball 3000 car rally changes course. The entrance fee for participants of the car rally was an exorbitant $120,000 (€92,421), while car fans with an eager eye for deluxe or zany automobiles and their affluent drivers could do so for free.

Maximillion Cooper is the founder of the Gumball 3000 brand, who as a British entrepreneur and creative director, transformed his love of cars in 1999 into the most prestigious car rally in the globe. A former model, he is also a fashion designer and an avid racing driver.
