The Finnish company Awain presented a limited series of keys for supercars with precious stones. Each copy is made by hand with the involvement of watchmakers and engineers, and the most expensive is 500 thousand euros – more than the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster.

Awain founder and head Jalmari Mattila is a former autojournalist. He never liked the usual keys of supercars, as the plastic “blanks” looked like an insult against the background of elegant cars. Therefore, with the support of designer Leevi Markkuly and the watchmaker Joachim Jokela, a truly beautiful and luxurious key was created, as he believes.

Precious metals, precious woods, genuine high-quality leather and precious stones are used to finish Awain keys. The process of creating – from the initial design development to final processing – takes 100-300 hours. All operations are performed only manually.

The basic model of Quantum is decorated with 354 diamonds weighing 3.45 carats (0.69 grams), the average Serenity is already 1,250 diamonds per 20 carats (four grams). The price of these keys is 49 and 89 thousand euros, respectively.

The most expensive option is called Phantom and the price is 500,000 euros. It is decorated with diamonds weighing 34.5 carats or 7.1 grams. The body of each key is 175 grams of 18- or 24-carat gold.

Another company, Senturion Key, offers owners of expensive supercars to use a bracelet with a visible mechanism as a key. Outwardly, it looks like an expensive watch, and its price reaches 155 thousand pounds sterling
