Super-sized plastic car kit gets turned into a sculpture

A few weeks ago, we heard about an obscenely wealthy man who purchased two Aston Martin One-77s with the purpose of using one for his own driving pleasure and the other as an enormous art decoration in his house.

While we cringe at the mere thought of having a $2 millon-dollar supercar idly hanging on a wall and collecting dust, we do have a suggestion for our wealthy friend and opt instead for this DRIVE IN wall art that’s being sold by a company called JELLIO for a ‘paltry’ $2,500.

So what if it’s not a car? It’s actually a pretty cool concept, which takes those plastic car kits of yesteryear and supersizes them to become a limited-edition 44” x 44” sculpture.

The limited edition sculpture even pays homage to the chrome heavy hot roads that were prevalent back in the 1950’s, which pretty much guarantees it a ton of attention by itself.

Don’t get us wrong; an Aston Martin One-77 that’s hanging on a wall is guaranteed to be the center-of-attention. But we’re afraid that not everybody will appreciate that work of art, especially if they see themselves sitting behind the wheel one.

Not bad at all. I mean there are a lot of puzzle collectors out there and some DIY dudes, this will be something that is cool to have as a project alone or with the kids at home. It’s seems safe for the kids anyways. At least they wont be able to drive it away if you leave it at home.

Some of the rich people are insane, instead of using their money into something more valuable and noble they spend it into some stupid things.

@ Gelathagath - why are you jealous? well last time some rich man from middle east bought 10 of these one-77, maybe this car does have something.

well that was an nice wall decoration, but it looks kinda expensive.
