This superb Aston Martin DBR2 is the last of seven made by our vendor over the years, the other six all produced to special order for a distinguished client base. Only two real DBR2s were made by Aston Martin for racing purposes and this is a half-scale model of the one driven to victory at Goodwood by Stirling Moss in September 1959.
Finished in Almond Green with green leather seats, it has a hand-made aluminium body with opening boot and bonnet over a bespoke tubular steel chassis coated in grey. The car is powered by a 24v electric motor on a cast aluminium transaxle with a dash-mounted speed control dial and floor-mounted forward/reverse gear shift. It has an electro-magnetic braking system, fully independent front suspension and working headlights with their own separate battery under the front bonnet. Both batteries can be recharged using a domestic three-pin plug connected to an onboard charger.
It measures 7ft long (215cm) x 2ft 6” wide (80cm) x 18” high (46cm) and comes with a miniature buff logbook and 1959 tax disc. We are not sure of the exact weight but two people can lift it fairly easily. The craftsmanship and the attention to detail are exemplary and the model is in ‘as new’ condition, being in perfect working order.
A marvellous gift for any child, it would also make a wonderful ornament in any man cave and would sit well in any car collection.
