Story

Quite simply the most successful racing Bugatti of all time, the Bugatti Type 35 took the Grand Prix World Championship in 1926 after winning 351 races and setting 47 records in 1924 and 1925. The 35 proved to be particularly handy at the Targa Florio, winning the Sicilian race for five consecutive years from 1925 to 1929. The Type 35 was still so relevant in 1929 that William Grover-Williams drove one to victory in the first Monaco Grand Prix to be repeated in 1930 by Rene Dreyfus. This model is of Bartolomeo ‘Meo’ Costantini’s victorious stead as raced at the seventieth running of the Targa Florio in 1926, where Bugatti dominated with a 1-2-3 victory. A close friend of Ettore Bugatti, Costantini retired from racing at the end of 1926 and took over as full time racing team manager from Ettore himself.

This perfect scale model has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of the manufacturer regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings.The use of original CAD and supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, the prototype model has undergone detailed scrutiny by the manufacturer’s engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.

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.
