A 1:1 model of the Aston Martin 1959 has been created by Evanta Motors and incredibly enough the components of the model car are housed beautifully on a 6.35m x 3.30m parts tree.
It has been styled in the form of an Airfix kit and each component has a guide number. The 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 is considered an icon by motoring aficionados. This lifelike replica has been created to pay homage to its original drivers Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori and its chief engineers Ted Cutting. Salvadori and Shelby drove that car to a Le Mans win back in 1959. A hand crafted gem, it has been constructed in England. The kit is basically a giant model, the parts look like they are ready to be twisted off for assembling.
Apparently only one model has been manufactured and will be auctioned (the auction price is in the region between $31 300 and $47 000). The fantastic representation of the iconic vehicle weighs between 1 100 and 1 320 pounds. Pedantic attention to detail has been given to constructing this replica. It includes the body-shell, four 16 inch wheels, a Mota Lita steering wheel and a cap autographed by Shelby and Salvadori. Whoever gets their mitts on the 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 1:1 Scale Le Mans Replica is one lucky bugger. To keep up with the latest Aston Martin news, visit the Aston Martin Facebook Fan Page.
