Scaled replicas of sportscars with an electric motor is hugely popular with kids but will you shell out £15,000 ($25,000 approximately) to buy one as a Christmas present for your child? The answer to it might be yes when you find out that it is a scale replica of a 1907 Silver Ghost AX201 and is actually made by http://luxurylaunches.com/tag/rolls-royce/ rather than a toymaker from China. The original Silver Ghost won Rolls-Royce the ‘best car in the world’ tag back in the 1920’s and a real full-sized 1907 Silver Ghost will be worth somewhere near £30 million ($50 million) currently. Coming to the scaled replica, the attention to details is absolutely stunning and the meticulously crafted EV for kids even boasts a ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ mascot for its tiny aluminum hood.
This scaled replica of 1907 Silver Ghost was in fact sold at Bonham’s Goodwood Revival sale at the weekend for £15,000. It has a top speed of 8mph and gets its power from a 24-volt electric motor. The car also features pedals for accelerator and brake, rack-and-pinion steering, fully working headlights, a hand brake, and bulb horn. The front seats can also be removed so that adults can fit into this pint sized replica and have some fun.
