McLaren F1 LM model even Lewis Hamilton would desire

Think of an incentive that could push Lewis Hamilton to keep up his winning stride. If you could think of an incentive worth $4 million, you have to think of the McLaren F1 LM, being promised by McLaren CEO Ron Dennis for winning two Formula One World Championship titles. However, we could dwell on this forever what it is like to squeeze in the finest driving machine ever built for the public roads, but UK-based Amalgam Fine Collection sells what has to be one of the most detailed model collectible cars of this 1/8th scale McLaren F1 LM. The engine cover can be opened, showing off the intricate detailing on this stunning model and its hard to believe if this is actually a model. It is accompanied by the book “Driving Ambition” written by Doug Nye in conjunction with Ron Dennis and Gordon Murray, telling the whole story from conception to realization of this iconic car. Priced at $5,300, Gordon Murray will sign the book, along with the certificate of authenticity that accompanies each model.
