The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the most beautiful modern-day supercars and is amongst our top five dream cars here at Unfinished Man. The car is a bit expensive for the average Joe but fear not, the good folks at Amalgam Fine Model Cars have created an affordable version of the car. They’ve produced an incredibly detailed 1:8 scale model of the 458 Italia.
The car looks amazing and the pictures can easily be mistaken for the real car. It took engineers at the company 3,500 hours to create the master model and then 3,500 hours are spent on each production scale model. The doors can be opened to show the beautifully detailed interior and the car is placed on a carbon fiber base with a clear acrylic dust cover. The 1:8 scale Ferrari 458 Italia measures 23.6 inches (60 cm) and only 199 hand-made models will be produced. The cars come in three exterior colors; red with tan interior, yellow with black interior, and black with black interior.
Because of the high level of craftsmanship and because this is a Ferrari, it will cost you $5,644 plus shipping at the Ferrari Store. Still not a bad price for an exotic Ferrari, even though you can’t drive it.
