Story

Ferrari’s contender for the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship was designed not only to consolidate the Scuderia’s 2017 strengths but also with the specific intention to improve overall performance on high-speed circuits.

In the words of Ferrari Technical Director, Mattia Binotto, whilst speaking about the SF71H at its launch, ‘If we take stock of what we did last year, in low-speed tracks we always did well while in circuits where the speed was higher we were suffering a little more. So aerodynamic development was sought in that respect….’ To this end, the SF71H was designed with a longer wheelbase, an evolution of bodywork design around the sidepods and a more honed rear-end. These improvements were joined by a much larger airbox opening, due to a repackaging of the cooling system along the centre of the SF71H. Driven by World Champions Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen, the SF71H took six wins in the 2018 F1 racing season and as many pole positions in qualifying.

This fine 1:18 scale model of the SF71-H has been handcrafted and finished in the workshops of Amalgam Collection using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from the drawing office of Ferrari. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.

Scale guide

Amalgam Collection occupies a unique place in the history of fine car models, fashioning unrivaled examples of the world’s most iconic and luxurious cars at scale.

At Amalgam Collection, models are created at a range of scales, with the primary focus on 1:18 and 1:8 models. This scale represents the ratio between the size of a model and its full-size counterpart. Put simply, the bigger the number to the right of the colon, the smaller the model car. The 1:18 scale models are approximately 25 centimeters (10 inches) in length.

How it's done

All Amalgam models beautifully and precisely capture the entirety of the original, and are impossible to discern from a real car in photographs. To create these perfect scale replicas of modern cars, CAD design, 3D printing, and CNC machining are combined with traditional machining and hand working techniques to create the most accurate and faithfully detailed models.

With regards to classics, digital scans of the original cars and around 1000 reference photographs are used to capture the precise shape and proportions of every part of the car including the chassis, engine and drivetrain. It can take over 4000 hours to develop a 1:8 scale prototype, and each subsequent model takes between 250 and 450 hours to cast, fit, fettle, paint and build.
