Amalgam Collection, the architects behind some of the most fastidiously designed and energetically-priced diecast replicas of motorsport’s most legendary cars, is currently developing a 1:8-scale, ‘race-weathered’ example of the Porsche 917K that won the Daytona 24 Hours in 1970.
Yes, ‘in development’, so the images above are actually of the 1:18-scale model currently up for grabs in the collection’s online store (we’ll update those as and when new images are released). And yes, ‘Amalgam’, so there will only be five examples of the race-weathered 1:8 example up for grabs – three of which have already been assigned – with each costing a mortgage-straining $15,595 USD. Or about the same as a decently-specced Ford Fiesta. At a time when disposable income is at a premium.
