British scale car company Amalgam showed off its latest creation, a 1:8 scale Ferrari 296 GTB toy supercar. Like all Amalgam products, it features the highest level of detail and a small run of just 199 copies. This explains the impressive price of 12,062 euros.
The Amalgam craftsmen used original drawings of the 296 GTB to develop the model which took about three thousand hours to make. All parts were made of high-quality materials, and to select colors used Ferrari factory codes. The resulting copy was so accurate that it received official approval from the Ferrari CENTR Stile.
Drawing of the optics, carbon fiber inserts, and brake calipers exactly copy details of a full-size hybrid two-door. Opening the sliding doors, you can look into the interior, which has been designed down to the smallest elements — from the controls to the gauges on the dashboard.
Mini-supercars will be handmade, and the creation of each instance will take about 300 hours. In addition, Amalgam plans to release a smaller 1:12 scale model: perhaps its circulation will be larger, and the price will be low.
At the end of January, Amalgam put up for auction a whole collection of models, which are valued at several thousand euros. Among them — miniature SF90 Straddle, the price of which reached seven thousand euros, Bugatti 16C Galibi er, Mercedes-Benz F800, Nissan GT-R, and others. The auction will end on the evening of February 9.
