Gentlemen I have no words.. I am tempted to tag this as NSFW as this is porn.
Here I present to you a one of a kind hand made 1:1 scale model of the 1959 Aston Martin DBR1

It's a model of the Aston Martin DBR1/2 that Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to a Le Mans win in 1959. The awesomeness: it is a 1:1 scale model on a parts tree. Yes, as in a life-sized, 20.8-feet long and 11.3-feet high, weighing between 1,100 and 1,320 pounds.

The 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 components and frame assembly

Each part is labeled and has an AirFix-like guide number attached



this one of a kind collectors piece comes with an authentic signed aston martin cap by both drivers salvardori and shelby.

Totally handmade in the style of an AirFix kit, there is only one of them and it headed to auction during the Goodwood Revival weekend at the Goodwood circuit in the UK. The auction guide price is £20,000-£30,000 (that's $31,286-$46,929 U.S. or €24,998-€37,497).


For those who want to drive a 'real' one, you can contact the Evanta Motor Company. They are able to supply the DBR1 as either a bare rolling shell or a fully road legal car which meets all the standards. Where "Each car is built to exacting customer specification. Whether you wish a modern ECU powered engine or an age related vintage offering we are able to cater for both palets".


The motorcars bespoke tubular space frame chassis is fitted with only new or fully reconditioned parts. With a limited slip differential to maximise power, adjustable coil over suspension and disc brakes (a tandem braking system with a choice of servo assist can also be utilised). A bespoke loom is hidden around the chassis and the original spec Lucas lights and dash equipment are used for that "period finish".




The Interior is fully customizable any way you want it with an endless list of choices and the engine and gearbox options are also open to customization, the Aston Martin DBS straight six being the popular choice.



Body options are a one piece GRP or kevlar shell. Or hand crafted aluminium panels over superlegerra framework.
