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.

This replica cost $5,000? Wow! Isn’t that too much price for a small toy car or collector’s toy car like this? The price cost a fortune.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen pictures of random Ferrari’s sitting on the side of the road engulfed in flames. Given the rarity of the brand versus conventional vehicles, I would have to say that there is a disproportionate amount of these things that have been torched. It’s a load of crap.

That replica really cost a lot, though the design is very intricate and stunningly the same from the original.
