Amalgam Collection Perfectly Replicates Ferrari’s 2024 Le Mans Winner

Amalgam Collection, makers of the world’s finest car models, has today unveiled 1:8 and 1:18 scale models of the Scuderia Ferrari 499P, celebrating the racing machines that triumphed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 10th and 11th June 2023. The models capture the victorious #51 car piloted by James Calado, Antonio Giovinazzi and Alessandro Pier Guidi, and the #50 car that claimed Hyperpole in the hands of Miguel Molina, Antonio Fuoco and Nicklas Nielsen. The perfectly replicated, super detailed, limited edition 1:8 scale models, have been created for Scuderia Ferrari and their partners, but are also available to Ferraristi. The winning #51 car has also been developed by Amalgam as a ‘kerbside’ model at the smaller 1:18 scale.

Each 1:8 scale is the result of over 4000 hours of skilled design and development, and 400 hours of work per individual model. The basis of this development is original CAD data for the 499P shared with Amalgam by the engineers at Gestione Sportiva, but there remained much for the team at Amalgam to achieve. Exercising all their outstanding skill and artistry, the team set about reworking the CAD before 3D printing and hand working hundreds of patterns.

Moulds were made, and every part was cast in prototyping resin, then fettled and fitted, painted and assembled into these impressive artworks. Every visible detail of the car has been captured and perfectly replicated. The limited edition model is available adorned with the livery of the victorious #51 car or its #50 sister car, and are strictly limited to just 199 pieces. Every 1:8 model features openable doors and a removable engine cover, allowing close examination of the car’s tight and purposeful racing interior and every minute detail of the F163 twin-turbocharged 2,992 cc V6 power unit.

The 1:18 scale project is a direct continuation of the previous intense research and development process the artisans at Amalgam have been through to create the 1:8 model, necessitating a further 800 hours of work. Working from the same CAD data, Amalgam’s engineers follow an identical process to the larger scale model, with the same intense commitment to capturing the essence of each car. The resulting prototype model only received approval from the designers and engineers at Gestione Sportiva once they were fully satisfied with its accuracy of representation.

Sandy Copeman, Founder of Amalgam Collection, commented: “We were delighted to see Ferrari triumph at Circuit de la Sarthe. After a 50-year absence from the top step at Le Mans, it is an incredible story that fully illustrates the passion, engineering prowess and technological capabilities in Maranello. We’re proud to be able to work with Scuderia Ferrari immortalising this incredible moment with our editions of 1:8 and 1:18 scale models.”
