A 1:1 scale model of Aston Martin’s 1959 Le Mans winner to go under the hammer

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 collectible 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. Evanta Motor Company Brought out; 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 baby will 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 will surely make many people go green with envy.
