Well, you can’t afford the real thing, and chances are, you can’t afford the replica either. We’d all like to get behind the wheel of a 1960 Ferrari 250 California Spyder SWB, but let’s face it – unless a magic lamp falls out of the sky to grant us three wishes, there’s no way we could afford the real thing, and as it turns out, even a 1:8 scale replica.

The latest in Amalgam Fine Model Cars line up, the 1960 Ferrari 250 California Spyder SWB has been shrunk down to an intricately detailed 1:8 scale replica. Measuring in at about 24 inches, these models, made by a team of highly skilled model makers, took about 4,000 hours of work to design and create. Add to that another 350 to each individual model to finish and build, and you’ll realize why it costs so much.

Detailed right down to the last point, this replica also includes the engine bay, chassis, drive train, suspension and the cockpit. There are only 199 of these beauties being made, and each one comes with a signed certificate of authentication and a unique edition numbered plate on the base. You can place this on your desk for the not-so-small price of $6,555. To buy it now, visit the Ferrari Store here.

    I see, so it’s just just the road cars that are outrageously over priced.
