Re: Db5 Aston Martin replica project 2013

Just let me get one thing straight. The Q car (the full sized car) featured in the photographs above is a replica??!!

If so I have just had my socks blown off! It is absolutely breathtaking!

and there lies the problem of today's replica and kit car market.

back in days of yore, the idea was to make the unobtainable affordable. these days you can buy 3 decent 'off the shelf' second hand cars for the cost of a replica cobra. things like the dax tojero or gardner douglas 427 can easy fetch £30-50.

so even the poor man's replica DB5 will invariably be another rich man's toy. and I don't have issue with that, i just wish the replica car market could return to a more affordable format.

the other issue is how happy aston are with this.

before anyone addresses that point, google what happened to the guy who was building himself a mercedes 300sl gullwing replica.... it's not a happy tale  ajb007/crap

Re: Db5 Aston Martin replica project 2013

There's no law in building one car. And it's 2017, nothing is cheap anymore.  It cost way more then 100,000us to build this. And if everyone could afford one, they wouldn't be special. My friend bought his in 1994 for $30,000can. Mercedes gullwing is also under a "art law" many of these laws had to be done before. Did Porsche shut down speedster replicas? Spyder replicas? Why didn't AC cobra stop Cobra replicas? GT40?  Just don't build a piece of junk, that makes the brand look bad. Have you seen the guy building the Ferrari GTO in NZ?  Anyways. My job is done here. On to the next project.

Unfortunately I'm not on instagram so I guess I'll just have to drool over what's already been posted.

Re: Db5 Aston Martin replica project 2013

wow, wasn't aware of this company in Bangkok - I may need to check them out when I go home to visit

Re: Db5 Aston Martin replica project 2013

It's not hard to sell bodies or build junk, if this company even exists

643

Re: Db5 Aston Martin replica project 2013


Whoa... I'd love to see some real-world pics of those. As you say, if they even exist!
