Similar to the Evanta Motor Company's previous project with Aston Martin, this DBR1 model is special on multiple levels. One, it's a 1:1 scale reproduction of the vehicle that Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to win the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans. Two, the model is handmade and features an impressive level of detail: the DBR1 body shell comes with accurately upholstered seats, four 16-inch Aston Martin wire wheels wrapped in Dunlop race tires, a machined aluminum gear knob and gear lever, and full dashboard finished in textured satin and equipped with Smiths gauges and period switches. (It even comes with a replica of the Le Mans trophy.) And finally, the entire model is presented in the style of an AirFix Kit, with the full-on parts tree packaging. There's only one in existence, and it's scheduled to be auctioned during Goodwood Revival weekend at the Goodwood circuit in the U.K. via: Autoblog
