You’ll need a microscope to admire all the minute details on Amalgam’s 512 BB LM

Believe it or not, this isn’t a real Ferrari 512 BB LM, but rather a product of Amalgam’s wizardry when it comes to perfectly miniaturising every single detail of history’s greatest automobiles. Take a look below at all of its 1:8 scale glory.

Looking at these crisp images, even the most scrutinising of Concours judges might have a hard time distinguishing between this pint-sized Ferrari 512 BB LM and the real NART #68 car that raced at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1979. Sharing practically nothing with the road-going 512 BB, the LM boasted an entirely new design developed by Pininfarina. Gaining an extra 41cm in length as the tail was elongated as far as the regulations would allow, the LM was a perfect blend of Italian engineering and muscle car styling. 

One cannot overstate Amalgam’s dedication when it came to shrinking every conceivable aspect of one of Ferrari’s greatest race cars. Handcrafted and finished in Amalgam’s workshop with the cooperation of Ferrari regarding the original finishes, materials, archive imagery, Amalgam even had access to super high fidelity digital scans of the original car to ensure utmost accuracy. If you still don’t believe us, take a look at the gloved finger lifting the rear clamshell. No, that is not one of the Almighty’s digits, that is a human hand. Available on the Classic Driver Shop for $14,237, it may be as much as a small hatchback, but it certainly has at least quadruple the attention to detail that any economy car has ever been subjected to.
