Amalgam launch the stunning Ferrari 275 GTB/4 at 1:8 scale

May 20th, 2014

Introduction of the Ferrari 275 GTB/4 series at 1964’s Paris Auto Show marked the beginning of an entirely new lineup of Ferrari road cars. The series was comprised of open and closed body styles, but now the coupe’s look was clearly separate in character from the convertible’s. The closed Ferrari 275 GTB had an aggressive new berlinetta body. The ‘4’ designation was derived from its revised cylinder heads with four camshafts that boosted its horsepower to 300 at a heady 8000 rpm.

This stunning car is modelled precisely and accurately at 1:8 scale and features opening doors, hood and trunk.
