Good news for F1 fans: Now get Max Verstappen's winning Red Bull RB16B replica
In a good news for those who are a die hard fan of Red Bull racing, Amalgam Collection is making available a 1:8 scale replica of Max Verstappen's championship-wining RB16B model. The company has earlier worked with Red Bull Racing to develop RB16B replicas of the car Verstappen drove at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, and the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix.
Additionally, a replica of the RB16B driven by Sergio Perez to victory at the 2021 Baku Grand Prix was also made available by the company. To create the latest Red Bull RB16B replica, the company provided CAD data about the RB16B to Amalgan, which helped it to perfectly replicate every single part of the race car, albeit on a smaller scale.
The process of replication of the model is said to have taken more than 2,500 hours of development while each example takes 250 hours to cast, paint, and assemble. And be it a 1:8 scale model, it doesn't come all that cheap. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix cars each cost $10,504 while the Turkish Grand Prix model costs $10,579.
