While I was doing research for the article on Swarovski Car figurines, I found that since the production of ‘Ultimate Corvette featuring Swarovski Crystals’ there have been other automobile and motorcycle figurines embellished with Swarovski crystals on the Franklin Mint web site!  There is a complete article about the Swarovski Corvette here on the Kristall Buzz.

Ultimate Swarovski 1993 Duesenberg Car

Swarovski 1933 Duesenberg


The Ultimate 1933 Duesenberg Twenty Grand featuring Swarovski Crystals is a Limited Edition car, with only 100 Swarovski Duesenberg units produced.  This Swarovski car has approximately 12,000 hand-set crystal stones.  At the Franklin Mint web site, it had a retail price of $1495.  While it appears to be sold out there, I did find a couple on ebay at the original MSRP: Swarovski Duesenberg on Ebay**.





Ultimate Swarovski 1966 Shelby Cobra Car

Swarovski 1966 Shelby Cobra


The Ultimate 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C featuring Swarovski Crystals is a Limited Edition car, with only 100 Swarovski Shelby Cobra units produced.  This sparkly Cobra has over 6,000 hand-set Swarovski crystal stones.  This dazzling card is available at the Franklin Mint web site at $1295 or the purchase price can be broken down into 3 lower payments.





Ultimate Swarovski Harlely Davidson Motorcycle

Swarovski 2006 Softail Classic Harlely Davidson


The Ultimate 2006 Harley-Davidson Softail Classic with Swarovski Crystals is a Limited Edition motorcycle, with only 100 Swarovski Harley Davidson units produced.  This Swarovski motorcycle also appears to be sold out as the Franklin Mint web site indicates that they are accepting backorders.  This Swarovski Crystlized motorcycle has over 3900 hand-set Swarovski crystals.  If an interested individual wants this item, I’d suggest this Swarovski Harley Davidson on Ebay**, which is still at the original MSRP of $995.



**I do not know the Ebay sellers and am not vouching for them.  Interested buyers should thoroughly check out any seller they are considering to do business with. The links were provided for reference only.

The Franklin Mint web site is one that I’ll have to bookmark and watch for future dazzling Limited Edition car and motorcycle figurines decorated with thousands of Swarovski Crystal stones!  I wonder which Swarovski car or Swarovski motorcyle will be next?

One of my clients asked me about purchasing what she called the Swarovski Corvette. I did some detective work and finally found the Swarovski Corvette she was asking about.

The Swarovski Crystal Corvette is a limited edition die cast model Corvette bejeweled with approximately 5300 hand-set Aurora Borealis Swarovski crystals. This brilliant, sparkly sports car is a limited edition piece, with only 500 units produced. The Swarovski Corvette is available exclusively through the Franklin Mint. The Swarovski Ultimate Corvette is 1:24 scale.  One web site indicated a December release date, just in time for the holidays, and pre-orders are presently being taken at the Franklin Mint site. This limited edition has a nice price tag of nearly $1300 which can be made in 3 easy payments to the Franklin Mint.

Swarovski Crystal Embellished Model Corvette available at the Franklin Mint

For Swarovski Crystal collectors who may be interested in a cheaper Swarovski car, Crystal Exchange America does have several different ones available on their web site: Swarovski Limited Edition Porsche 356, Swarovski Porsche 911, and Swarovski Porsche Caymen . The Swarovski Porsches are typically in the $400 – $800 range. And if the Swarovski Porsches are still too pricy for a car gift, there’s always the Swarovski Old Timer Automobile which normally sells in the $125 – $200 range.
