Amalgam Honors Lewis Hamilton with a 1:4 Scale Model of His Mercedes W11

Dec 8, 2021

To label Lewis Hamilton’s array of accolades as impressive would be a major understatement. As one of the most decorated Formula 1 drivers in the sport’s history, the knighted speedster currently sits at the helm of the league’s all-time win category with 103 of them and most recently won the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix no less than five days ago, serving as his second consecutive championship out of 7 overall. Taking inspiration from his win in 2020, Amalgam is paying homage to the renowned racer’s Mercedes-AMG W11 that he drove in the Portuguese Grand Prix with a meticulous, quarter-scale model.

Put together with assistance from Petronas Formula 1 Team, who supplied authentic paint codes and CAD designs, this model boasts the authenticity we’ve come to expect from Amalgam. Individually, each 49-inch model garnered over 450 hours of painstakingly thorough attention upon its assembly, totaling up to a grand sum of 4,500 hours to craft overall. While Hamilton was not the only driver in the race to take advantage of the W11’s powerful specs, he surely secured his spot as the most successful participant to put them to the test, ultimately breaking Michael Schumacher’s all-time leading win record that very same race. Regardless, Amalgam is also constructing a handful of other quarter-scale models that embellish Valtteri Bottas and George Russell, respectively.

Currently labeled as “Under Development,” this meticulously crafted model is limited to a mere seven pieces and is listed to sell for a whopping $34,943. While you cannot officially get your hands on this rarity just yet, you can register your interest in Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes-AMG W11 quarter-scale model through Amalgam’s website.
