The 3D model provides a high level of detail, right down to stitches in fabric. Aston Martin uses a high-definition projector in a dedicated room to enable designers to interact with full-size computer generated images of the car.

When it comes to the full size sculpture, the clay is coated with a product called Dynoc, which has a metal like texture to match the car's finished bodywork. Aston Martin uses a 3D printer to create objects like steering wheels and alloy wheels, which are used to make the model as realistic as possible.
