Too bad it's $9,500 each.  :no:


I wonder if they have some sort of take-4-and-get-1-free promotion... :mrgreen:

9,500 each is just ridiculous, this gives you the idea of how something branded just because it has a name printed somewhere increases it's value x times. Models are made by Amalgam which sell for 5,000 at expensive stores and you can get them for less than 4,000.

I thought about Amalgam when I read the original article (they didn't mention the maker). Kind of makes sense, since it's the most important maker in 1/8 high-end model cars. BTW, they had a GORGEOUS 250 GT California Spider at the Ferrari Store in Barcelona, made by Amalgam in 1/8 of course. So tempting (if I were rich) :mrgreen:

well, if the F1 LM really took more than 3.350 hours to complete, then I'd say 9.500 dollars is an extremely reasonable price, or actually, a complete steal...

3,350 hours to complete the prototypes, the actual model takes around 300...
