Amalgam scales down with new 1:18 Ferrari collection

Advertorial: British-based model maker Amalgam is now creating beautifully-presented collections of cars at 1:18 scale, made to the same exacting standards that have made its large scale models famous.

Amalgam scales down with new 1:18 Ferrari collection

The sad reality of it is, most of us will never get the chance to own a real Ferrari in our lifetime – let alone a legendary 250 GTO. Thankfully we can always turn to Amalgam – a member of the Motorsport Network – to satisfy our innate desire for stunning Italian supercars with their insanely accurate scale models.

And the company's newest addition is arguably even more enticing than the rest.

Now available in 1:18 scale, you could own something like the stunning Ferrari 250 GT0 24 Hours of Le Mans Edition you see here.

While the new, smaller models retain Amalgam’s expert level of craftsmanship, it doesn't retain the four-figure asking price of some of its larger siblings. This particular example retails for $595, making it the perfect gift for any enthusiast.

‘The Monster’

Wearing the number 19, this particular model honors the 1962 250 GTO driven by Pierre Noblet and Jean Guichet at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which achieved a second overall finish and a first place class finish. It was the only front-engined car on display at the event, and earned the nickname "Il Mostro" (The Monster) just a year earlier thanks to its ill-fitting prototype body.

Similar to larger vehicles in the Amalgam range, each car is hand-crafted with high-quality materials. The model is now available for order on the Amalgam website, with more models being introduced as part of the "Ferrari at Le Mans" and "Ferrari Dream Cars" collections later in the year and into 2017.
