Despicable behaviour

The Aston Martin DB7 is a wonderful machine. OK, you can trace it's architecture back to 1975 via the Jaguar XJ-S, but it's achingly beautiful and it sowed the seeds for the current design language that permeates through the range today.

Why, then, would the unusual chaps at Alchemist think it was a good idea to gold- and platinum-plate a DB7? Is this the most expensive possible way to entirely ruin a car?

It looks like bits of it have been hand-painted with Humbrol after an accident. Fucking idiots.
