MEGA MONEY MODEL
There are car models. And then there is the Amalgam 1948 356A Speedster. For starters, it's big, as in 'uuuge thanks to its 1:8 scale proportions. All told, it clocks in at well over half a metre in length. It's also hand crafted and finished. Then there are the materials. The body is high quality polyurethane prototyping resin. That's combined with a range of real-world materials including natural wood, alloys, stainless steel, leather and pewter. It's even finished with Porsche-specified paints. All in, Amalgam says it takes nearly 400 hours to complete the model and the result is a quite breathtaking level of detail. That's just as well given the £8735 base price. You read that right, that's just the base price. More bespoke versions will break the £10k barrier. To find out more head for amalgamcollection.com.
