Car Company Creates A Life-Sized Model Of The Rare 1959 Aston Martin
Evanta Motor Company has created a tribute to designer Ted Cutting and drivers Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori with this 'AirFix' style replica.
If you wanted to buy an Aston Martin DBR1, you'd need a few million dollars- there were only 5 ever built, and valuations put the 1959 Le Mans winner at over $10 million. For those without that kind of spare change, a slightly cheaper version is now on the market for less than $50,000. UK based Evanta Motor Company has created a life-size 1:1 model of the legendary Aston Martin DBR1 racing car. Created as a tribute to Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori, the drivers who helped guide the DRB1 to the 1959 Le Mans win, and the DBR1's chief designer Ted Cutting–who all passed away earlier this year–the model was hand-made with extraordinary attention to detail, just like the real-life version.
