The love that car enthusiasts possess for automobiles is unparalleled. No matter the size of the car, if someone is a true automobile enthusiast, they also love scale models of cars as much as the real ones. If you are one of those hardcore automotive buffs and want to have something cool on your shelf, here is a list of some of the most well-built diecast scale models of popular cars that you can get.
The first car on this list is none other than the hypercar from the Italian supercar maker, Ferrari. The Ferrari LaFerrari, although launched over a decade ago, still looks like something that belongs in the future. It was launched as the brand’s flagship limited hypercar and it still remains the last Ferrari hypercar until the next one arrives. This 1:18 scale model’s doors, bonnet, and engine compartment can also be opened up to have a peek inside the car.
Porsche 918 Spyder
Next up is another hypercar scale model, and this one is from the legendary luxury carmaker Porsche. The Porsche 918 Spyder was the hypercar from Porsche that beat the Ferrari Laferrari and McLaren P1. It was showcased a decade ago but still remains one of the fastest cars in the world. If you truly love Porsches, then this is the car to get.
The McLaren P1 completed the “holy trinity” of hypercars alongside the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. This model was also a limited-production hybrid hypercar introduced in 2013. The actual car features a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine combined with an electric motor, delivering a total power output of 903 horsepower. Sadly, this scale model does not come with the same power, but it does have similar looks. We believe that is good enough for a scale model.
Another one of the top hypercars in the world is Bugatti’s Chiron. The model was introduced back in 2017, and despite being a few years old, technologically and mechanically, no car has even come close to what this car represents. The Chiron is the successor to the iconic Bugatti Veyron, which held the record of the fastest hypercar ever for decades. The original Chiron costs around Rs 19-23 crore, but if you do not want to spend that fortune, you can definitely get yourself this beautiful scale model.
1965 Chevrolet Corvette
The 1965 Corvette is a classic American sports car that is widely regarded as one of the most iconic and beautiful vehicles ever produced. It features a sleek and aerodynamic design with sharp lines and curves, and the real car is powered by a potent 327 cubic inch V8 engine that produces up to 365 horsepower. But sadly, there are no real ones in the country to buy. So, if you would like to give yourself a chance to own one of these beautiful cars, then you can definitely get this one.
Nissan R34 GTR
Next up are a few of the favorite cars from the popular Hollywood movie franchise, Fast and Furious. The first car is the legendary late actor Paul Walker’s iconic Nissan R34 GTR. If you are an OG fan of the FF series, then you definitely know what this is. Of course, this is only a scale model.
No list of cool cars will ever be complete without the presence of a Lamborghini, and the same goes for this list as well. The Lamborghini Aventador is one of the most popular models to come out of the Lamborghini factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The real model boasts a massive 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 and iconic Lambo scissor doors. This scale model also features those doors, but sadly not the real engine. Although it is still one of the coolest scale models that one can get.
Ferrari 488 Pista
Another one of the Ferraris on this list is the brand’s latest hardcore, track-focused supercar scale model – the Ferrari 488 Pista. For those who are unaware, the 488 Pista is the stripped-down, lightweight version of the Ferrari 488 GTB. The full-scale car is super limited and boasts a massive price tag of Rs 5 crore, but this scale model can be purchased for a fraction of that amount. It may not run as fast or be driven, but it will surely become a highlight on your shelf.
Mercedes G63 AMG
This one is for all the Mercedes G63 AMG or G-Wagon lovers. The Mercedes G-Class needs no introduction. It is one of those SUVs that has gained immense popularity across the globe and in India as well. A ton of celebrities in India have taken deliveries of the G Wagons, and if you can’t afford the real one right now, this scale model should do the trick.
Rolls Royce Cullinan
Last but not least, it is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. When it comes to SUVs, there is no other SUV in the world that can match the opulence of a Cullinan. Despite its small size, this scale model is one of the most well-built models and showcases the SUV in great detail.
