The replica measures 78 cm in length, 40 cm in width and 24.4 cm in height. Details seen in a full-size car cabin have been mimicked carefully in the miniature. The tiny steering wheel features impeccably-copied cross-stitching, details of the iconic seat quilting and fluting have been mirrored in detail and the model car even mimics the lustrous wood veneers and plush carpets that characterise the original. In fact, the scale model allows for the doors and boot to be opened in the scale model.
