This bonus gallery is dedicated to the finer things… like this 1:18 resin-bodied model of the famed (not to mention extremely scarce) Aston Martin One-77. The real thing tags in the multi-millions range; this curbside model will set you back around $500.00 – and every penny is on display atop a hand-finished alcantara-topped display base. The details are stunning, and the model’s almost as rare as the car it’s patterned after. Only 77 pieces in each of three original Aston colors will be made (including this Villa D’Este Blue, Matte Black, and Frost White); a follow-up run of only 40 more, done in an as-yet-unnamed color or colors, will follow. Then the mold will be retired, and the series capped.
Rare, hand-finished, and sealed, these beauties aren’t for everyone – but that’s exactly what makes them so desirable to those who love this part of the hobby. Read Marshall Buck’s full review of this latest Tecnomodel in the Spring ’12 issue of DCX – and enjoy this gallery for now.
