For owners of Ultimate and Super Series cars, we offer a bespoke/tailor-made service at 1:8 scale, customizing a model to perfectly match the specification of your car. Every detail of your car’s specification is replicated on the model, including the license plate and the interior finishes, right down to the colour of the leather stitching.

Our close relationship with the McLaren allows us to access paint and other key options and specification data so that we can match everything to the exact specification of your car. We will in short create a model for you that is a perfect representation of the precious original in every detail. Placed in your home or office it will be a wonderful attractive display and an ever-present reminder of a much-loved possession.

To discover more about the opportunity to have your car modelled please email our expert sales team or connect with your local sales agent.

You should do the 600LT!
We do harbour intentions to build eventually every McLaren at scale, though our focus for the time being is on the Ultimate and Super Series cars. If the demand for a 600LT is clear though, we'll definitely be encouraged to build it!

Thank you for your kind feedback - we are extremely proud of the work our artisans do.
We are definitely serious with our pricing - the work we do is not an inexpensive process! Our models are what they are because we follow a similar approach to that of Richard Mille and his wristwatches: we make the best model we can with no effort or expense spared. There is a law of diminishing returns when it comes to model-making, so it takes us much more time and investment to make a model each little bit closer to perfection. The development of one of our 1:8 scale models can take up to 5000 hours and so, when we set prices for each model, we not only have to cover the costs of the initial development, but the build and much more besides (like acquiring the data, getting the licenses from the relevant manufacturers, building the tooling, etc).
We understand this isn't always achievable for many customers but this is why we are attempting to increase our 1:18 scale range and introduce new concepts such as our new Sculptures range at lower price points. Plus, we have introduced flexible payment methods which, although in an early stage of testing for us, is proving popular with our clients, which is a great sign. I hope this gives you a deeper insight into why we do what we do.
