Evanta-Aston Martin DBR1 1:1 Scale Model | £auction | www.evanta.co.uk
growing up as a boy, you probably has, one time or another, muck around with toy car assembly kits, or more commonly known as AirFix kit. now that you have all grown up, you can relive those days but in a much, much larger scale to set yourself apart from the boys. sounds good? then the Evanta-Aston Martin DBR1 1:1 Scale Model you see here is just the kit for you. based on the 1959 DBR1(2) that Roy Salvadori and Carrol Shelby drove to the Le Mans podium, this beautiful scaled model comes in a form of a large scale 20′ x 11′ AirFix kit (aka parts tree) consisting of the body shell, two upholstered race seats, a set of four 16-inch Aston Martin wire wheels wrapped in Dunlop race tires, an aluminum gear knob and lever, a complete dashboard, a Mota Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel, a cap signed by Shelby and Salvadori (in a box, no less), and a replica Le Mans trophy completes this awesome kit. actually, not true. the package is made complete by an assembly instruction sheet, guiding you in putting this piece of motorsport history together and thanks to its AirFix-style guide number, getting it pieced together should be, well, a piece of cake. already salivating for one? then head on down to Goodwood Revival weekend (September 14 – 16, 2012) at the Goodwood circuit in UK and be prepared to dive into an arm-raising routine when this beauty goes under the hammer, and there is only one available, so be ready for an epic battle for it.
