More Aston-related goodies, including a new addition to your Scalextric stable
One-77 sculpture by Emmanuel Zurini £POA pullmangallery.com
Emmanuel Zurini always manages to do a lot with a little, using just a few carefully teased lines to create immediately recognisable sculptures of iconic trains, planes and automobiles. This bronze of the muscular One-77 is one of only eight produced – making it an even rarer thing than the One-77 itself.
1:18-scale DB4 GT engine model by CMC ¤116 cmc-modelcars.de
To anybody who appreciates good engineering, the straight-six of the DB4 GT is as wonderful to behold as the car itself, and that famous 3.7-litre unit has now been faithfully reproduced in model form by CMC. At one-eighteenth the size of the original, it’s the rare old engine that can be brought home without angering Management.
‘Super 8’ shirt by t-lab £27 t-lab.eu
Suzuka is one of the world’s most testing circuits, blending technically demanding sections with fearsomely fast corners. It’s also among the most easily recognisable with its figure-ofeight layout, which is crisply printed on this new t-lab shirt.
Scalextric GT3 Vantage £40.99 scalextric.com
The Nigel Hudson/adam Wilcox GT3 might have been pipped to the GT Cup Championship last year, but no car on the grid was more popular. The unusual paintwork – matt black with a brightly patterned rear – made it a real head-turner, and unsurprisingly it caught the eye of the people at Scalextric, too. Their version of the Aston has all the features common to their latest cars, including Magnatraction and working rear lights. Desirables is compiled by Chris Bietzk.
