Amalgam 1/8th Scale Model Cars – Very Detailed, Very Expensive

Amalgam 1/8th Scale Model Cars – Very Detailed, Very Expensive

Well they certainly don’t make Hot Wheels cars like this, do they? UK-based Amalgam Fine Collection sells what has to be some of the most detailed model collectible cars I’ve ever seen. Looking through the photos of this 1/8th scale McLaren F1 LM on their website it’s almost hard to tell it’s actually a model at times.

And if McLaren isn’t your thing, most other high performance sports cars appear to be available from the Ferrari Enzo, to Aston Martins, to the Bugatti Veyron. And the price? Well the McLaren model pictured above sells for £3,250, or just over $5,300, making it seem like a real bargain when compared to the real thing. (You’ve got to justify it somehow!)

    Wow! These are just cool! I'm not too proud to say that I was fooled. The price is a bit out of my range though and there's the issue with fitting in the front seat. I've got long legs.

    That is so wicked. The detail is amazing. It makes you wonder what other things they could have done in that time.

    These are pretty, but I'm always disappointed that these super expensive detailed models don't go all the way and miniaturize a working car engine, and brakes, leather seats, working windshield wipers, etc.
