If you love collecting Le Mans victors, but you can’t really buy out the original all the time; auctions are too fierce at times. But if you enjoy auctions anyway and prefer a collectable over the real deal, then this is the way to go. This time around, the Aston Martin DBR1/2, which Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to Le Mans victory in 1959 gets a scaled reincarnation. Brought out by Evanta Motor Company, the 1:1 scale model has been created to its original size; it is 20.8-feet long and 11.3-feet high, and weighs between 1,100 and 1,320 pounds.
Hand made using an AirFix kit, the entire DBR1 comes with 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. This one-of-a-kind babywill go under the hammer at the Goodwood Revival weekend at the Goodwood circuit, UK. Estimated between £20,000 ($31,300) and £30,000 ($47,000), the person who bags this beauty is surely going to make many people go green with envy.
