Honda Odyssey gets a Jewel Paint makeover – bling-tastic bad taste rules

Hondaodysseyjewelpaint

This Honda Odyssey with Kyoto Opal Jewel Paint can probably grab the title as the most bleeugh car in the universe. It’s been coated with 70,000 carats of synthetic gemstones called Kyoto Opals combined with a new material called Jewel Paint, with a street price of around $80,000 – and that’s for the paint alone. Eat your heart out Mr and Mrs Swarovski.

 Kyoto Opal is a new material, created using gemstone synthesis technology developed by Kyocera, based on the same quartz grains as natural opal. By coloring Kyoto Opal artificially, a diverse range of hues can be produced. In addition, a variety of cuts can be achieved, overcoming the cracking and chipping that occur in natural opal.
