Ferrari has announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration with UK-based company Amalgam Collection to offer its customers a unique opportunity to get a matching scale model of their new Italian supercar at Ferrari dealerships. Ferrari’s options list is quite possibly the coolest thing, which usually includes things like carbon-ceramic brakes, carbon fiber inserts, and different performance upgrades. Amalgam Collection is famous for making some of the finest hand-made large-scale models, particularly at 1:8 scale. Set up in 1985, the Bristol-based brand started with making prototypes for architectural firms. However, it diversified into making high-quality car models in the ‘90s and started working with Ferrari in 1998.
“Of course, we’ve worked for years with Ferrari owners to craft replicas of their beloved vehicles, and we have a long history of working with Ferrari itself to produce exacting models for its own display and gifting purposes,” Amalgam Collection founder Sandy Copeman tells us. “In the past, commissioning and Amalgam replica of your exact car was something of an ‘in-the-know process. We wanted to offer the service directly to the customers.”
Amalgam Collection has announced that it will offer bespoke scale models for Ferrari Roma, 812 Superfast, 812 GTS, Portofino M, SF90 Stradale, and SF90 Spider, which customers can option during the ordering process at the dealership. Missing in the catalog is the newly launched Ferrari 296 GTB, which might be added later as the line-up is expanded in the future. They’ll be available in both 1:8 and 1:12 scale versions. While the company is known for its 1:8 scale models, it’s the first time Amalgam will offer models in 1:12 scale, which will be exclusively available only to Ferrari customers. Each model is exquisitely crafted out of around 1000 individual components hand-cast in prototype resin. The unmatched attention to detail includes intricately capturing all the exact details of customer cars. The models will even be finished in the same color with paint mixing codes shared by Ferrari. The mini-Ferrari replicas will cost anywhere between $4,200 and $7,500.
