Amalgam Reveals Ferrari SF1000 Collection with “Obsessive Attention to Every Detail”
The Amalgam Collection is proud and honored to reveal its 1:8 and 1:18 Ferrari SF1000 scale replicas. The SF1000 name of the car references the fact that Scuderia Ferrari celebrated their 1000th grand prix in 2020.
Amalgam’s Ferrari SF1000 collection of models are each handcrafted and finished by the artisans at the company’s workshops. Development of the models was with the co-operation and assistance of Scuderia Ferrari regarding the unique matt finish of the paint, material references and access to the original CAD design of the car. The first prototype model has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams at Ferrari to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
“We tend to be obsessive in everything we do,” says Sandy Copeman, Amalgam’s director of brand. “We have an inbuilt desire to replicate and capture beautiful designs.”
The SF1000 was driven by four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and serial race winner Charles Leclerc in 2020. Originally designed for the 2020 Championship alone, the SF1000 will compete for the Scuderia in both the 2020 and 2021 seasons after the FIA and teams agreed to extend the technical regulations in response to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 66th car built by Scuderia Ferrari to take part in the Formula 1 World Championship, the Ferrari SF1000 was revealed on 11th February at a closed Ferrari event at the Romolo Valli Municipal Theater in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The name reflects the fact that the Scuderia have taken part in a thousand Grands Prix after the ninth race of the season, which originally was scheduled be to be at the Belgian Grand Prix until the Covid-19 pandemic interrupted the season before it even began. Instead, Ferrari’s 1000th race was the Gran Premio della Toscana Ferrari 1000, held at the marque’s very own Mugello circuit, a fitting tribute to Formula 1’s longest serving team. The Maranello outfit made its Formula 1 debut on 21 May 1950 in the second ever championship Grand Prix at Monaco and is the most successful in the sport with 16 Constructors’ titles, 15 Drivers’ and 238 Grand Prix victories. (Statistics correct as of the end of the 2020 season.)
“Our relationship with Ferrari and all of the manufacturers is on a patron and artisan basis,” adds Copeman. “We work with original CAD designs and hi resolution photographs to ensure a superior level of detail. We 3D print, machine and handcraft each component using authentic materials where possible and finish each part with real automotive paint. Our mission is to create a model that represents the car as accurately and perfectly as possible. There is no limit on how long we take to make each part and create each detail. We know it is finished when it’s right. We always want to take each model to a higher level. That is what drives us. We keep on exploring and finding new ways to make even more perfect models that capture the real car.”
