P88 Luxus?

So I saw this gun go to auction and never expected it would bring $2,750 plus fees. I've never heard of a P88 Luxus and looking the picture it doesn't appear to be a factory job. The nickel on the slide is not good. The gold pieces look fake. The grip screw gold appears painted and you can see the black behind it. Did someone just screw himself big time with this purchase or am I missing something?

Agree that gold is hideous and gaudy. The slide I don't mind though. I prefer the standard finish but wouldn't kick this one out of bed if it had standard hardware. Though there looks to be a strange wavy line on the slide serrations but could just be the lighting. Def not worth the premium price or fetched. Must be a high rolling gangster who bought it.

I actually like the contrast between the black, gold, and nickel.
