AMALGAM INTRODUCES CELEBRATORY FERRARI SF1000 ‘1000th’ GP COLLECTION
On the 13th of September 2020 the most famous team in Formula 1 celebrated their 1000th grand prix. It was an astonishing achievement signifying 70 years of total commitment to the world’s premier motor racing series. Amalgam are excited to reveal the full Ferrari SF1000 Tuscany Grand Prix series, having perfectly captured the car that celebrates Ferrari’s unique achievement in its deep blood red livery at multiple scales. The impressive replicas of both Charles Leclerc’s and Sebastian Vettel’s unique SF1000 cars are presented at 1:8 and 1:18 scales, alongside a miniature nosecone at 1:12 scale.
AT 1:18 SCALE
At the smaller 1:18 scale, limited edition variants for both Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel have been announced. Only 500 models will be built for either driver version as Amalgam continues to set the quality benchmark for this scale, recognised amongst high-end collectors worldwide. The prototype model was the result of over 800 hours of development, which only concluded once Ferrari’s design and engineering teams were satisfied with the accuracy of representation. Every model is supplied with a special certificate booklet celebrating Ferrari’s 1000th Grand Prix. The edition of Leclerc car is currently available to purchase, with the first Vettel editions available soon.
AT 1:12 SCALE
We are delighted to be offering precise miniature recreations of the SF1000’s nosecone for both drivers, which in particular showcase the traditional hand-painted style of the #16 and #5 numbers of Leclerc and Vettel respectively. Requiring over 500 hours of development, the 1:12 scale nosecone measures nearly 18cm wide and comes in its own acrylic display case, perfect for exhibition. These models can be removed from their mounting frame which itself is inspired by the storage racks in the real Scuderia Ferrari pit lane garage.
AT 1:8 SCALE
At the flagship 1:8 scale, the sample model involved over 2500 hours of development, and each subsequent production model has taken around 250 hours to cast, fit, fettle, paint, decal and build. The finished pieces measure over 71cm long and were built using original CAD designs and paint codes supplied by Scuderia Ferrari. The production run is limited to just 50 pieces.
