Aston Martin DBR1/2 1:1 Scale Model
This has the little boy in us going absolutely ape shit. Coming complete with leather upholstered racing seats, a real Mota Lita steering wheel, 16" wire wheels with Aston Martin knock-offs, dash board, replica of the 1959 LeMans trophy (which the real version of this car won) and a glass encased cap signed by Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori. If all that wasn't enough, it comes on a classic model tree à la the Revell model kits of yore. The one of a kind kit is to be auctioned off during the Goodwood Revival in September. It is expected to fetch somewhere between $30000 and $50000. We're busy trying to figure out how we can get a chassis and drivetrain into this bad boy.
