$10,000 sounds like a lot for a model, and truth be told, for the non-wealthy, it IS a lot of money. However, when you take into account the detail and man-hours that go into crafting this piece of work, it's understandable why it would cost so much.

This Bugatti Chiron engine replica is made by Amalgam and took over 2,500 development hours and 220 build hours to create. It is constructioned mainly from pewter and stainless steel, and measures in at 18 inches long and 9 inches high.

This is the first model engine that Amalagam has built since the early 2000s, and to ensure that no stone was left unturned, they worked closely with Bugatti's engineers to make sure all parts appear exactly how they should.

Everything from the real engine is represented here, including part numbers, barcodes, hose clamps, and even four scale turbochargers. The total number of parts needed to create this beauty? A mind boggling 1,040 individual pieces.

  • I heard of this manufacter, they do model cars like pagani and do the model in the same specifications of the real one so the owner can have it in their trophy wall. I think they're about 5k.

  • I know i might sound stupid, but this being an exact replica of the engine...Would it work? If you put gasoline in it?

    • I thought it too when I was a kid and saw the 1/12 scale engines. I don't think it will work, for example, the spark plugs obviously don't work and The wiring too.

    • I am talking about just starting the engine...well if you replace them with miniature spark plugs won't it work? Because as far as i know exact replica means exact replica so there should be moving parts as well.

  • Surely if you found spark plugs to fit and wired it up it should work
