• 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. This scale model of the DB5 is scheduled to be unveiled at the Top Marques in Monaco, at which time, we’ll probably be hearing some fellow with deep pockets make what can only be described as a purchase done solely for the love of art.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I don’t think that it needs a video. When I saw this masterpiece and saw those formed wire it tells the story on its own. I really appreciate it!

I will appreciate this car more if they have provide a video on how this masterpiece has been done. However, I think this is another result of talented craftsmanship!

What a lovely piece of art! Can you still remember the wire Lamborghini? It is also expensive as this one. I wonder who’s going to buy this kind of art.
