The Ferrari 458 Italia would have been Ferrari’s next great supercar if not for a problem that has forced the company to recall the vehicle . But despite the problems that the 458 comes in, it hasn’t stopped Amalgam Fine Model Cars from releasing a 1:8 scale replica of the supercar.
The scale model, which was built with the input of no less than seven-time F1 world champion, Michael Schumacher, is an intricate rendition of the real-life supercar – minus the adhesive problems, we hope – down to the car’s supremely detailed interior and overall look.
The models are available in three colors – red, yellow, and black – and according to Amalgam, can be personalized to a customer’s individual specifications. So, if you don’t have the money to purchase the real deal – not that you should given the cars are currently being recalled – you can scoop up this scale model that comes with a staggering price tag of $5,000.
