Celebrating Lamborghini Past and Present: Amalgam Unveils New Countach And Revuelto Models

Famous for making the most perfect large scale model cars in the world, Amalgam Collection is proud to add two handcrafted models to its already extensive Lamborghini portfolio – the seminal Countach LP400, and the all-new Lamborghini Revuelto.

Officially licensed by Automobili Lamborghini – and continuing a longstanding partnership going back 15 years – each 1:8 scale Amalgam model takes over 400 hours to hand-build and assemble by a small team of expert craftspeople from thousands of precisely engineered parts, to perfect the most intricate of details.


Lamborghini Countach LP400

The Countach, alongside the Miura, sits at the very core of Lamborghini’s legacy. Developed in 1974, the LP400 was designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, who designed a ground-breaking car that captivated audiences from its launch. It was the first car to pioneer scissor doors and introduced the ‘cab forward’ layout, pushing the cabin ahead to house a powerful mid-mounted engine.

The LP400 was the first generation of the Lamborghini Countach and boasted a 4-litre V12 engine, which was uniquely positioned lengthways – giving the model it’s ‘LP’ title, meaning ‘Longitudinale Posteriore’. The design transition from prototype to production was very minimal, with only some enhancements in styling for improved cooling, including larger air scoops and vents, and conventional headlights, while retaining its sleek silhouette. Between 1974 and 1978, only 151 LP400s were built.

With options to display it in its original and striking Giallo Fly yellow hue or in an equally captivating Rosso Red, Amalgam has meticulously recreated every intricate detail of the Countach, both inside and out. This includes scale-size switches to operate the doors, headlights, front compartment and rear engine cover, as well as utilising thousands of castings, photo-etchings and CNC machined metal components. At over 50 centimetres (20 inches) in length, each 1:8 scale model is built using the finest quality materials and is a beautiful recreation of one of the world’s most iconic cars. The Lamborghini Countach helped define the design DNA of the Italian marque’s super sports cars that followed, including the all-new Lamborghini Revuelto.


Lamborghini Revuelto

Launched early last year, just before the 60th anniversary of the marque, the Revuelto became the first HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) hybrid super sports car produced by Lamborghini.

Lamborghini’s Revuelto sets a new standard in performance, technology, and driving enjoyment. Its powertrain, boasting a total of 1001bhp, merges a cutting-edge 12-cylinder engine with three high-density electric motors and an innovative transversal dual-clutch e-gearbox, offering an unparalleled thrill on the road.

Now, owners of the all-new Revuelto can enhance their experience with a very special opportunity to commission a superbly detailed bespoke 1:8 scale model of their car. Every exterior and interior feature will be accurately replicated and every single visible aspect, including even the smallest details will all be perfectly reproduced – including the colour of the stitching on the seats, the license plates and the brake calipers. In addition, thanks to a long-term collaboration with Lamborghini, Amalgam have full access to the brand’s paint codes, colour samples, and every personalised detail to ensure their model matches their full-size counterpart.

Measuring at over 56cm (22 inches) in length, the 1:8 scale model is the perfect size to comprehend the entirety of the Revuelto at a glance, while including every fine detail of the design.

Sandy Copeman, Founder of Amalgam Collection, commented: “It’s a pleasure to unveil the Revuelto, the latest Lamborghini addition to the Amalgam Collection. The Countach LP400 and the Revuelto are both extremely special cars, demonstrating the very best of Lamborghini’s spectacular design and equally extraordinary engineering.  At Amalgam, we take great pride in our commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail and are delighted to continue our longstanding partnership with Automobili Lamborghini to bring these iconic vehicles to life as perfect large-scale models. Whether you’re a collector or a Lamborghini enthusiast, our models offer a unique opportunity to own a piece of automotive history.”

The Lamborgini Countach LP400 model is available to purchase now through the Amalgam Collection website. The Lamborghini Revuelto model is available to pre-order now with a 50% deposit, and with commissions being produced later this year. It is available to both Revuelto owners and all enthusiasts.
