Amalgam Alfa Romeo’s 8C 2900B
Several factors make a car special – beauty, rarity, performance, racing achievements – and Alfa Romeo’s 8C 2900B tops the scorecard on all of them. This terrific 1/8th-scale Amalgam model recreates the works car that Clemente Biondetti drove to Mille Miglia victory in 1938, with amazingly detailed engine beneath the louvred bonnet – even the tiny labels on the cam covers are reproduced – and every sweep of the curvaceous body from pert prow to tapering tail are accurately modelled. A beautiful model of a sensational machine which will remind me of the few glorious hours when I was allowed to drive the priceless real thing.
