Amalgam’s Latest Model Collection Recreates Iconic Le Mans 24H Race Cars

While us common folk may balk at the idea of paying five figures for a model car, there’s no denying the incredible attention to detail that goes into each of The Amalgam Collection’s offerings. Less miniaturized imitations than they are perfect, pint-sized replicas, some are even adorned with the same damage that their inspiration accumulated over the course of a race.

For its latest collection, Amalgam has partnered with Le Mans organizer Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) to create a series paying tribute to the 24-hour endurance event. In doing so, the model specialist can now build cars from throughout the race’s nearly 100-year running, with everything from early open-topped Bentleys and Bugattis to recent hybrid hypercars like the Porsche 919. As such, you’d be hard-pressed to find a stand-out offering amongst the lot; they’re all exceptionally historic vehicles. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the more notable recreations, such as the weathered Porsche 917k (winner of the 1971 Le Mans), the 1963 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type, or even the Ferrari 375 Plus that took the top spot back in 1954. Comprised of both 1:8 and 1:18 scales, you can buy pieces from the collection starting at $968.

Purchase: $968+
