Amalgam has developed a 1: 8 scale model of the Ferrari SF1000 racing car. Among other things, a miniature copy of a real car received a 1000th GP livery.

With the start of the 2021 Formula 1 season starting this month, scale model makers from Amalgam have unveiled a very special 1: 8 Ferrari SF1000. A replica of the real car received the only livery from the 2020 Grand Prix della Tuscany. , with which the car performed on the Mugello circuit – ultimately this is the thousandth race for Scuderia.

For those with little understanding of the history of Formula 1 racing, the car will be painted burgundy instead of the famous Rosso Corsa red.

There is a very good reason for this, as the unique color represents the 125 S, the first car to win an F1 race for the Italian racing giant. After the first victory in 1950, it took Alberto Ascari another season to win the world championship.

“It is an honor and pleasure for everyone at Amalgam to copy such an iconic car for Ferrari,” said Sandy Kopman, Amalgam Brand Director. “Ferrari shares our passion and commitment to excellence and attention to every detail.”

The scale model costs 9,096 dollars. and yes, this is far from your average mid-range model that you can buy at your local store. In addition to handcrafting and finishing at the Amalgam workshop, Scuderia Ferrari also played a role in checking the paintwork of the model and even in the CAD design of the car. In addition, several engineers from the Italian Formula 1 team were tasked with ensuring the exact continuity between the model and the real racing car.
