It's not black, so I wouldn't consider it. That, and a small matter of budget.
extremely rare Summilux 35mm f/1.4 AA chrome USD$750,000.00 (https://www.setadelstudios.com/collections/lenses/products/leica-35mm-summilux-m-f1-4-aa-silver-chrome-aspherical-prototype-11873-lens-1-1)

Get in fast before someone grabs it :)

Edit: Compared to the most expensive Leica ever sold to date, reportedly the 'O' series serial #122 sold for USD$2.97m (https://www.dpreview.com/news/6706951465/the-most-expensive-camera-in-the-world-1923-leica-sells-for-2-97m-at-auction) in 2018, this lens is a bargain!

Right KoFe..... they do from time to time have reasonable things at god prices....so I keep checking them ... but they do also have the exotic way overpriced stuff

Alex has very nice cameras and lenses, and he's very good with returns/exchanges. He used to go to camera shows, but he hasn't had a table for awhile. Obviously most sales are online. This is a draw to his e-store and I take it that way. Wouldn't be surprised if this lens sells to an overseas buyer ;)

It'll sell. There is a sufficient number of wealthy people around to pick up this thing.

The lens caps are not in matching chrome, so I will pass up this great deal.
By the way, I bought my Hologon from this camera store!

The lens would be a perfect SLOB companion for this:
