What would you do with $13,000? Perhaps you would buy the most practical car possible for that price? Maybe you’d buy a sports car? Or maybe you’d embark on an ambitious trip around the world? Alternatively, you could spend $13,000 on a 1:8 scale McLaren Senna from Amalgam Collection.
The British company is responsible for some of the most spectacular, and expensive, scale models on the planet and has just released its latest model for the Senna. It may cost just as much as a decent hatchback but there are probably some people out there who will buy it without a second thought.
Amalgam Collection first built a 1:8 scale model of the McLaren Senna in 2018 and priced it at $8,324. The company has returned for 2019 with a new-and-improved Senna scale model which is delivered with a special remote that control various vehicle functions.
A small model for people with big bank accounts
For example, a simple press of a button on the remote can open the left or right door. Additionally, there are buttons to operate the interior lights, headlights, reverse lights, and to lock and unlock the doors.
With the exception of the remote, the latest McLaren Senna model from Amalgam is virtually identical to last year’s model. Consequently, it is extremely detailed and mimics the real thing absolutely perfectly. Heck, in these images, it would be easy to mistake it for an operational Senna that laps circuits for a living.
Sadly, it is a little out of our price range. Perhaps we’ll just have to get the $17 McLaren Senna from LEGO instead…
