The Born This Way singer is getting around New York City in a custom made luxury 24 carat gold wheelchair.

The New York Post reports that Gaga commissioned Ken Borochov of the luxury brand Mordekai to create a one-off wheelchair for the diva.

“I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen,’ Ken told the newspaper.

With only a week to create Gaga’s wheelchair, Ken used tufted calf leather to fashion its plush leather seat, with the wheels and hardware 24 carat gold plated.

The chair can also go into a full recline position.

On Tuesday, photographer Terry Richardson posted a picture on his Twitter account of the singer sitting in her new transportation.

Last month, Gaga also tweeted an extreme close up of the chair, revealing she had named it ‘Emma.
She underwent surgery after being diagnosed with synovitis – a severe inflammation of joints – and a tear in her right hip.

The singer was forced to cancel the final 21 dates of her Born This Way Ball tour due to her condition.
