Viceroy hotel hosts Amalgam Fine Model Cars’ first Abu Dhabi display

November 20th, 2014

 

The F1 title decider between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at the Yas Marina circuit is the backdrop to our first event in Abu Dhabi.

We are showcasing four stunning 1:8 scale model cars; Ferrari LaFerrari, Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4, McLaren P1 and the Pagani Huayra in the Lightbox Gallery at the Viceroy hotel Abu Dhabi from Thursday 20 until Sunday 23 November.

It is no coincidence that this beautiful hotel has been chosen to spot light the LaFerrari model. As the hotel boasts 499 rooms, so this masterpiece of engineering will be crafted into only 499 limited editions in 1:12 and 1:8 scale models, just like the real car.

The Aventador LP720-4 celebrates Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary and we have created only 199 exact replicas in 1:8 scale of both the Roadster and Coupe with full exterior and interior detailing.

When opened, the doors of the 1:8 scale McLaren P1 model reveal the intricacies of this limited production plug-in hybrid supercar. Only 199 models are available of the successor to the McLaren F1 and each one can be fully personalised.

Pagani took inspiration from the Andean wind god to name their new mid-engined sports car, also known as project C9 and we have captured every fascinating detail of the Pagani Huayra in the 1:8 scale model.

 

We will be showing more of our fabulous model cars at the following events:

Abu Dhabi Ferrari World – Monday 24 November – Monday 1 December
International Property Awards in Dubai – Wednesday 3 – Thursday 4 December
Finali Mondiali Abu Dhabi – Wednesday 3 – Saturday 6 December
Ralph Lauren event in Kuwait Monday 9 – Tuesday 9 December

Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder at 1:8 scale

November 20th, 2014

 

Only ten Ferrari 275s offically came from the Ferrari factory in spyder configuration. These were all made for Luigi Chinetti who was Ferrari’s North American Importer at the time.

Chinetti recognized the need for an alternative to the luxurious 330 GTS and convinced Ferrari to deliver his own ‘NART Spyder’.

Chinetti first got the idea for the car at the Paris Motor Show when the 275 GTB/4 was shown. Ferrari at first denied his request to build a factory spider, but after talking to Sergio Scaglietti who manufactured the 275 bodies, Ferrari was finally convinced. Chinetti named the car after his North American Racing Team (NART) which contested all the top races in US and abroad.

This stunning car has been created in exacting detail at 1:8 scale by Amalgam Fine Model Cars.

Ferrari 60th Anniversary Beverly Hills 2014

October 16th, 2014

Ferrari celebrated its 60th anniversary in America on Sunday at Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The marque of the stallion took over the palm-lined street of gilded storefronts with a hugely impressive display of 60 cars, including some of its most significant race winners and what some insiders consider to be the most valuable Ferrari not currently on the market.

Among the highlights of the display, dubbed “Race Through the Decades: 1954–2014,” was a complete collection of all the special anniversary cars, including the 288GTO through to the LaFerrari, Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 275GTB/4, a number of Daytona and Le Mans winners, and this year’s Pebble Beach Concours Best in Show, a dramatic 375MM Scaglietti coupe.

Also parked in the lineup was what some think is possibly the most valuable Ferrari in existence, should it come up for auction. This yellow 1965 275GTB/C Speciale raced by Ecurie Francorchamps was one of three special-body 275s built for racing, this one featuring a voluptuously shaved-down roof that exaggerates the car’s proportions. It won the Le Mans GT class in 1965 and finished third overall. The owner, Florida swap-meet king Preston Henn, has had it since 1970. Henn, 83 and a former racer, was on hand as the car was fired up to the delight of the crowd.

Amalgam Fine Model Cars were proud to be a part of this illustrious event, with a show of world-class 1:8 scale replica Ferraris including; Ferrari 275 GTB/4, F40, 458 Italia, 458 Challenge and the stunning LaFerrari.

Ferrari California T at 1:8 scale

August 13th, 2014

The Ferrari California T epitomises the sublime elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity that have distinguished every California model since the 1950s.

The “T” in its name, of course, stands for “Turbocharged”. In fact the revised convertible is twin-turbocharged. The new twin-turbo V-8 features 3.8 litres of displacement. A pair of twin-scroll turbochargers, and direct fuel injection, helping it to produce 553 horsepower at 7500 rpm and 557 lb-ft of torque at 4750. Those figures represent a jump of 70 horses and a huge 185 lb-ft of torque over the old naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V-8, with both peaks hitting lower in the rev range.

The entry-level California T wears almost classically gorgeous sheet metal shaped by Ferrari’s hired pens at Pininfarina. Overall, the California T appears longer and lower than the car it replaces, despite carrying over nearly identical dimensions. The posterior has been toned down, thanks to a bevy of horizontal styling elements and a mean-looking diffuser that reduce the visual height of the rear deck.

Pininfarina has certainly used elements from the latest generation of the Ferrari line up. Overall the California T now looks as good going as it does coming.

This elegant Ferrari is modelled precisely and accurately at 1:8 scale and features opening doors, and full interior detailing.
