Evanta Motor Company puts its pedal to the metal with this model of the Aston Martin DBR1/2 that Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to victory in the 1959 Le Mans. A full1:1 scale suspended on a parts tree, the model recreates the original automobile precisely. The life-sized copy by Evanta Motor Company is 20.8 feet long and 11.3 feet high, and it weighs between 1,100 and 1,320 pounds. The one-of-a-kind car, displayed in the style of an AirFix kit, includes a Mota Lita steering wheel and a cap signed by Shelby and Salvadori themselves. Automobile admirers will bid on the car at Goodwood Revival weekend in the U.K.; the auction guide price is $31,286 — $46.929.
