1:43rd scale white metal model of the Aston Martin DBR3, mounted on base with outer box, handbuilt in England exclusively for mimodels.
The Aston Martin DBR3 was a sports racing car built in 1958 as an alternative to the DBR1, using a different engine and front end setup. The car was very short lived and eventually converted into a DBR1.
It competed only once, and unsuccessfully at that. Despite the best efforts of Stirling Moss, the car failed to finish in the Daily Express Trophy race held at Silverstone on May 3rd 1958. The new engine proved to be unreliable and prone to overheating in comparison to the older, yet more thoroughly understood engine in the DBR1. The DBR3 can be recognized by the unique bonnet bulge.
