An Aston Martin DBR1 childs car,
manufactured by Pur Sang, of Argentina, the PS-R DBR1 half-scale 'junior' prototype faithfully and accurately recreates the excitement and aura of the original. Pur Sang needs no introduction to those familiar with the world of Bugattis, the firm's Type 35 recreations being universally admired for their incredible authenticity and quality execution. Powered by an electric motor with rechargeable battery, the junior DBR1 is a meticulous recreation of the original and features a bespoke steel spaceframe chassis, fully articulated suspension, rack and pinion steering and twin braking system. Hand formed over a wooden buck, the aluminium bodywork features authentic wire rolled edges to the wheel arches, just like the original.
The seat covering is made of the original woven material, as used in the 1959 Le Mans winner, while the wood-rim steering wheel and original-pattern appliquéd instrument panel are true to its big brother's form. Tyres and wheels are faithful versions of the Borrani and Dunlop originals. The electrical system incorporates lights and an 'electronic exhaust' sound system featuring authentic recordings of the DBR1 engine's distinctive bark, 210cm long.
