No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is a 1:1 scale Aston Martin DBR1 model and yes, its on a tree just like you remembered when you were a kid. Only one will be made and it will go up for auction at the Goodwood Revival with an auction guide price of $31,286-$46,929. For all that green you will get a life size DBR1 model kit which will include four 16'' wire wheels on Dunlop race tires, a Mota Lita 15'' steering wheel, upholstered race seats, machined aluminum gear knob and lever, a satin black finished dash with Smiths gauges, a replica Le Mans trophy, and a cap signed by none other than Caroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori, the legendary drivers who took the DBR1 to the victory circle in 1959.
