Story

Often hailed as the most beautiful production road car of all time, the sublime Jaguar E-type Series 1 stirred passions in automotive aficionados the world over when launched at the Geneva Salon in 1961. Based on Jaguar’s racing D-Type, which had won Le Mans from 1955-57, the E–type was powered by a 3.8 litre version of the proven Jaguar XK engine, developing 265 brake horsepower and providing a top speed of close to 150 miles per hour.

The monocoque chassis construction, using the engine itself as a structural part of the car within the front subframe, was also indebted to the racing D-type and resulted in a considerable weight benefit. With disc brakes fitted all around the car and the addition of a sophisticated independent front and rear suspension, the E-type was ahead of its time. Allegedly described by Enzo Ferrari as ‘the most beautiful car ever made’, the E-type became an iconic symbol of the 1960s and was particularly successful in the American market.

This perfect 1:18 scale Amalgam model of the Jaguar E-type Roadster has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Jaguar 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.
