Description

This finely detailed model depicts the NART 250LM Ferrari, victorious at the 33rd edition of the 24 Heures Du Mans in 1965. The last Le Mans that the Italian stable would ever win, this North American Racing Team entry enjoyed a legendary win, beating the arguably favoured Ford GT40s, all of which retired before midnight. Piloted officially by Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory, it is fabled that a third, unrecorded driver, delivered a stunning stint in this car in the small hours of the morning. Ed Hugus, the first Shelby dealer, is thought to have jumped into the Ferrari in lieu of Rindt, who had gone missing in action from the le Sarthe track.

Contemporary reports suggested that he may even have gone to Paris for dinner! Gregory eventually took over at sunrise and the squad snatched eventual victory from the hands of Belgians Pierre Dumay and Gustave Gosselin, also racing a 275LM Ferrari. This leading car had suffered a puncture and had picked up resulting damaged bodywork, allowing the American drivers to claim the crown.

This fine 1:18 scale model of the Ferrari 250 LM has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.

Every Amalgam 1:18 scale model is supplied in a luxury black box with a protective outer carrying sleeve. Each model is mounted on a polished black acrylic base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The base holds a booklet containing the certificate of authenticity along with information and collateral material about the car. The model title and original branding is displayed on a polished stainless steel plaque mounted at the front end of the base.


Scale guide

Amalgam Collection occupies a unique place in the history of fine car models, fashioning unrivaled examples of the world’s most iconic and luxurious cars at scale.

At Amalgam Collection, models are created at a range of scales, with the primary focus on 1:18 and 1:8 models. This scale represents the ratio between the size of a model and its full-size counterpart. Put simply, the bigger the number to the right of the colon, the smaller the model car. The 1:18 scale models are approximately 25 centimeters (10 inches) in length.

How it's done

All Amalgam models beautifully and precisely capture the entirety of the original, and are impossible to discern from a real car in photographs. To create these perfect scale replicas of modern cars, CAD design, 3D printing, and CNC machining are combined with traditional machining and hand working techniques to create the most accurate and faithfully detailed models.

With regards to classics, digital scans of the original cars and around 1000 reference photographs are used to capture the precise shape and proportions of every part of the car including the chassis, engine and drivetrain. It can take over 4000 hours to develop a 1:8 scale prototype, and each subsequent model takes between 250 and 450 hours to cast, fit, fettle, paint and build.
