I say real, the wire wheels give it away. Even photoetch has its limits.

Correctamundo! To be precise, a 1/12 scale MODEL of that car, custom-made (scratchbuilt).

Here's a photo where you can see the size of the model... note the coffee cup in the background:

Yup! That looks like one of Retrotoys 1/12 scale offerings-------IIRC, they also did a '57 Jaguar D-Type that was just as beautiful.

Island Collectibles sold those years ago..........unfortunately, they're long out of production. I'd love to see a plastic kit of a nice 1/25 '57 Aston Martin DBR-1 with the open wheel wells!
