Although I do not know of an Amby model, you can get the Tata Nano's scale model at most Tata Motore authorised showrooms like Prerna or Concorde in Bangalore city.

And for Ambassador only 1:43 scale is available (in whole globe). You can find one made by centy toys in toy shop like saphhire and in local toy shops too. Internationally I think Ixo has Ambassador in their model list.

IXO actually does have a diecast of the Hindustan Ambassador with badging et al, they also have an entirely different model shipping as the Oxford. There was a small discrepancy with the light & fitment which was discussed on this forum, with regards to my model - LINK BACK to first pictures.

Damn; I need to get an SLS AMG and a 458 Italia, both in 1:18.

Shipping to Canada is horrid; eBay can't do less than $75 shipped for either car.

Yeah thats about right. I suggest you get the Elite 458 as quickly as you can as the prices are getting higher by the day.
