Aston Martin DB5 wire sculpture can be had for ’only’ £88,000

For £88,000, you can probably buy a pretty good sports car along the lines of an Audi R8 or anAston Martin V8 Vantage.

That or you can opt to make this purchase. The only problem is, while the latter is an Aston Martin, it actually doesn’t have a whole lot going for it.That being said, if you are one of those people that would shell out this much money on a work of art then this option may be the one for you.

Created by Swiss artist Dante, this DB5 sculpture is as rare as it gets - only 10 have been made - but it’s also quite a handful on the wallet. Scaled in 1:4 dimensions, Dante used a polished, piano black plinth for the base and even installed a lighting system, giving it somewhat of a sparkly glint anytime the lights are turned on.
