24-Carat Gold Aston Martin DB7 - Web Exclusive

Oct 24, 2008

There's nothing standard about this unique Aston Martin DB7. Even the world's most famous secret agent wouldn't stay incognito in this 24-carat gold and platinum-leafed supercar from luxury customization company, Alchemist.

The day after the new James Bond movie Quantum of Solace premieres in London, Alchemist will showcase its one-off Aston Martin at MPH - The Prestige and Performance Motor Show at London's Earls Court.

And with seven diamonds embedded in the bodywork, it is said to be a jewel among the 200 supercars that will be on display.

Alchemist's creative director, Jacques Blanc, said: Forget the everyday optional extras offered by car manufacturers, this is the King Midas of customization and the gold standard of luxury.

Apart from being a dramatic publicity stunt, we're not really sure what purpose this car serves. You certainly couldn't use it regularly since you wouldn't want to leave it parked anywhere.
