The Amalgam Collection produces classic and modern-era Grand Prix racing-car models in 1:18 and larger 1:8 scale. Yes, they are larger models and all appear to be correct down to the smallest detail. For example, this 1:8 scale 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic — of which only four were ever produced — was created from the original vehicle using a digital scanning method. That car is owned by fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Bugatti Automobiles also helped with the correctness of the various components and color. The Bugatti sells for $15,000, but other 1:8 models are priced in the $10,000-$18,000 range (which can be paid in four installments). View the collection at
