These Amalgam miniature Le Mans racing cars make our mouths water
Amalgam Collections, creator of the finest miniature cars, recently teamed up with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), organizer of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and we think you can see where it’s going. Amalgam is renowned for recreating delicious miniature cars with exceptional attention to detail. The partnership with Le Mans opened the doors to new scale models of the most iconic cars in the racing series.
Amalgam dives into the archives of Le Mans for its new collection. Worth mentioning is the Bugatti Type 57G tank. It won Le Mans in 1937 and Bugatti made only three Type 57 tanks. The third car won Le Mans, while the second car won the French Grand Prix in 1936. However, the No. 1 tank won mysteriously disappeared after its debut at the Paris Auto Show in 1936. You can tell this story to your friends by showing off your exclusive 1937. Bugatti Type 57G. Amalgam sells this model in a 1: 8 scale for $ 18,500.
Yes, Amalgam creations don’t come cheap, but you’ll be hard pressed to find similar toys with the same attention to detail. Meanwhile, the Amalgam Race Weathered collection includes a Porsche 917K in Martini livery, winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1971.
The car looks as fresh as the day it won Le Mans, with personal injury and dirt on the road from a photograph taken by Rainier Schlegelmilch Giclee. Amalgam will include a copy of the actual image with every purchase, with prices starting at $ 19,952 for a 1: 8 scale rendition.
Of course, no classic Le Mans collection is complete without a Ford GT40. Capture the hearts and minds of racing enthusiasts and moviegoers in 2019 sports drama Ford vs. Ferrari, Amalgam was inspired by the victorious GT40 in 1969, the same car driven by Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver to the checkered flag. With prices starting at around $ 15,000, this 1: 8 scale GT40 is 20 inches long and is probably the most affordable way to own a vintage Ford GT40.
Amalgam’s latest Le Mans collection also includes vintage Ferraris, Jaguars, Aston Martins and McLarens. And if you are in the mood to buy a new Ferrari, you can ask Amalagam to create a replica of your Italian stallion.
