In the luxury automotive world, there are a few things that would cost you a fortune and won’t serve any purpose. Another non-functional addition is this1:4 scale Bugatti Chiron engine replica, which is an object art. For this model, Amalgam collaborated closely with Bugatti to recreate the supercar maker’s 1,500 HP 8L 16-cylinder W engine that seems as if pulled out from a real Bugatti supercar.
If you whip up your magnifying glass, you’d find the realistic numbers, barcodes, and even hose clamps. Amalgam said this miniature engine took 2,500 hours to develop, and packs some 1,040 parts and requires 220 hours to put them together. Most parts of this model are crafted out of pewter and stainless steel, and it measures 18-inches long and 9-inches tall.
The 1:4 scale Bugatti Chiron engine and gearbox is the first engine model Amalgam has made since the early 2000s. Previously, the company made a highly detailed 1/4 scale of Ferrari 049 engine that powered the F1-2000.
For those who are interested, the initial edition can be secured by pre-ordering it for $10,000 on Amalgam’s website. However, there’s no word on the delivery, but Amalgam did say that “the model is scheduled for completion in January 2018.”
