If you are among those who think the real estate bubble burst a while back, you may want to reconsider. An apartment in Hong Kong has just sold for almost $57 million big ones, casting a limelight so bright the owner may have a sunburn from the glare. The property is believed to be the most expensive property in Asia, by square foot.
According to AP, the apartment is a duplex suite, featuring five bedrooms, an aroma spa center, fitness room, outdoor yoga gym and grand harbor views. The new homeowner will have bragging rights to the exclusive address, located in the hills of Hong Kong’s main island where the who’s who list begins. The square footage is approximately 6,158-which translates to an astounding $9,200 per square foot of property. Even the wealthiest of New Yorkers would stagger at that cost.

Let’s forget for a moment that the front-end of this luxury Jaguar looks like it has been blown up like a piece of bubble-gum and appreciate how awesome the effect is. It is truly unfortunate that this 1952 Jaguar is not made any longer; it is so classically gorgeous and was ahead of its time.
