1:1 Scale Model of a 1959 Aston Martin

Aston Martin DBR1/2

Take a look at the real work of art. It’s a model of the Aston Martin DBR1/2 that Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to a Le Mans win in 1959. Produced by Evanta Motor Company it’s a 1:1 scale model on a parts tree – as in a life-sized, 20.8-feet long and 11.3-feet high, weighing between 1,100 and 1,320 pounds. “Totally handmade in the style of an AirFix kit, the entire DBR1 bodyshell is included, as well as bits such as accurately upholstered seats, four 16-inch wire wheels with Aston Martin knock-offs, a Mota Lita steering wheel and a cap signed by Shelby and Salvadori. Each part is labeled and has an AirFix-like guide number attached as if you were were really going to pore over the instruction sheet for assembly.” There is only one of them and you can see it on auction during Goodwood Revival weekend at the Goodwood circuit in the UK. The auction guide price is $20,000-£30,000 ($31,286-$46,929 U.S.). Take a look!
