There's a 1/8 model of the Rolls Royce Cullinan coming soon, made by Rolls Royce themselves.  Honestly, it makes Amalgam look like Norev.  Opening everything, working lights operated by remote control, and each one takes 450 hours to assemble.  It really is the Rolls Royce of scale models (sorry).

Details at Pistonheads, with the expected cynicism in the comments.  Around 15k if anyone is interested.

A Beautiful model,i love it(but not the price) i would say it would be a option or a tick on the invoice sheet for a new buyer of the real car so they don't have to get out of their seat to see the new Roller LOL. Very nice though. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

I saw a video of this model on Instagram quite a while ago and just assumed it was made by Amalgam.... For all we know it still might be!

To be honest the Cullinan doesn't look too bad in the right spec in person and if I was rich enough to own a 1:1, I'd almost certainly buy a 1:8 version, especially with all those features 😎

I quite disagree. Maybach is the ugliest in my opinion. I think it is quite elegant and balanced. When I look into Maseratis, Benltelys, Lamborghinis or any other luxury SUV (except Land Rover, but they are different story) I don't have desire to buy anyone of those. Simply, it is a wrong story. Doesn't follow the rest of a line up. However here, yes that is a natural model in a line up. It bring luxury and convenience. Easier to step in and get out, more space inside for tall people. . .

I saw 3-4 so far and only ones that I considered to be not nice were modded ones. In factory set up it looks quite nice to me.
