Amalgam has been crafting highly detailed scale models of Ferraris for decades. Its latest project is the Scuderia Ferrari SF21 Collection. This series consists of a 1:8 and 1:18 scale of the F1 race car and includes a replica of the SF21 steering wheel. The Ferrari SF21 1:8 scale and steering wheel are available for pre-order, and the 1:18 scale model is still in development. It is understandable considering the time it takes to create an Amalgam model.
These 1:8 scale models can take over 2,500 hours to develop and be approved by Ferrari before being sold. Then it requires another 250 hours to cast, fit, fettle, paint, and assemble. As a result, Amalgam is only producing 50 examples of each driver’s livery. The 1:18 scale Scuderia Ferrari SF21 is currently going through an 800-hour development phase. The steering wheel, while only a replica, does have working buttons, switches, and paddles. It was crafted using the original CAD data supplied by the Ferrari F1 racing team for precise, detailed accuracy. Amalgam will produce 99 examples of the SF21 edition steering wheel for each driver. With the holidays just around the corner, the Amalgam Ferrari SF21 Collection seems like an ideal gift for the hardcore F1 or Ferrari fan in your life. However, because these handcrafted models are of the utmost quality, expect to pay over $16K for the entire collection.
