This Italian hairstylist has spent more than €80,000 covering her car in human hair. Maria Lucia Mugno holds the official Guinness World Record for owning the world’s hairiest car which took her more than 150 hours to complete. Today, Maria’s Fiat 500 is concealed in 100 kg of women’s natural hair that she acquired from India.

The 47-year-old draw inspiration from a bet, whilst she was working, when her friend challenged her to make a car that was entirely covered in real hair and thought that she wasn’t capable of completing the mission.

When this friend saw her finished work of art, he was completely shocked by what she made out of the car, and won the first Guinness World Record for it in the process. Who would have thought that a bet can cost you a Guinness World Record. Talk about the prize!

Maria’s car is still drivable, as she made it street legal and refrained from covering the engine in hair. She drives her car about once a week or sometimes even more if there’s an occasion.
Of course, this comes as a shock to many people who spot her, because it’s something strange, unusual and new vehicle.

At first, they think it’s a creature, an animal or even a very weird thing, however when they see it’s actually hair, it disgusts them. Nonetheless, they do understand that it took a meticulous process to construct and are amazed.

With one kilogram of hair costing €800, Maria calculated that she had spent €80,000 on the transformation of her car. Maria also has to ‘service’ her vehicle once a week in order to keep it clean and in a respectable condition. Talk about pimp my ride!
