Chris Gilmour creates ‘Goldfinger’ Aston DB5 using cardboardJune 17, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
It will make in the top 5 of world’s most famous vehicles. While you can think of many names, I would let you know, we will be focusing on the ‘Goldfinger’ DB5. This is one car that will grab attention, even if it’s not present in its original form. A tribute or a replica from an artist would mean extra attention, but what if the art is made with one of the cheapest building materials ever. Cardboard boxes, will it be able to justify the popularity of the car?
British Sculptor, Chris Gilmour has the answer to our question, who built a life-size version of the Goldfinger DB5 with nothing but unused cardboard boxes and he did a hell of a job. The car is exactly what it was and even sports all the Q-Branch modifications along with the same number plate. Such detailing can hardly be seen anywhere. Getting the straight and not so flexible cardboard into the shape of DB5 would have taken something special from Chris, but since now its made we know chris has something special.
Other than this very much famous car, he already has done an original Fiat 500 and a classic café racer, which are as awesome as this one. You should probably check his work out, there is lot to see which words can’t describe.
