Amalgam Collection even worked with the Ford Archive and Heritage department and Gulf Oil International to replicate every detail as accurately as possible, and the result is a stunning recreation of one of Ford’s most important race cars.
Amalgam Collection will only build 199 examples of the 1:8-scale Ford GT40 but is planning to build a smaller 1:18 version. The company is already accepting orders, but demand is so high that orders require a 100 percent deposit of £10,350 ($14,165). That may sound like a lot for a model car that will sit on your shelf, but Amalgam Collection builds some of the most stunningly detailed scale models in the business – each model takes over 4,000 hours to build by hand. Despite the high asking price, Amalgam Collection says the first two batches have sold out.
