1:1 scale model of an Aston Martin DBR1

Click any image to enlarge
The British Avanti Motor Company has created a tribute to both the Aston Martin DBR1 which won the 1959 Le Mans race as well as the plastic models of our youth by creating a 1:1 scale model of the car. The parts of the model are mounted on a huge frame just like the smaller parts of model kits.

The scale model is going to be sold in auction this September and it is expected to fetch in the neighborhood of $40,000.
