Amalgam Reveal The Michael Schumacher Collection

Amalgam Collection, makers of the finest scale models in the world, has today revealed three ways to display their ‘Schumacher Collection’ built to honour the man widely regarded as the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time.

Exhibiting all the refinement and taste they are so well respected for, Amalgam is now offering up three quite different formats to display these exceptional models:

  • Option 1 – Model Collection ($53,000 USD / £39,725 GBP / €48,865 EUR): The models mounted on five standard Amalgam Collection carbon composite bases
  • Option 2 – Plinth Collection ($70,000 USD, £52,400 GBP, €64,455 EUR): The models mounted atop five silk black pedestals to be viewed at eye level
  • Option 3 – Wall-Mounted Collection ($87,000 USD, £72,500 GBP, €89,175 EUR): The models mounted on five carbon composite panels, together creating a stunning wall display. Limited to just five sets, these beautiful wall displays are indeed works of art. 10% from every sale of the Schumacher Collection Wall Display goes to the Keep Fighting Foundation. Each model is accompanied by a Giclee printed image of Michael selected from the Motorsport Images Archive. The complete display measures 3.06 metres (120 inches) wide by 2.17 metres (85 inches) high.

The five models comprising the Schumacher Collection are what we have come to expect from Amalgam, accurately and perfectly detailed scale replicas of each car, precisely as it appeared on track to take Michael another step along his glorious journey:

  • 1:8 scale models, measuring over 55 cm / 21 inches long
  • Over 12,500 combined hours of development
  • Over 1500 hours of build time
  • Thousands of precisely engineered parts: castings, photo-etchings and CNC machined metal components
  • The models were built using original design data and paint codes supplied by Scuderia Ferrari

SCHUMACHER

Sandy Copeman, Founder and Brand Director of Amalgam, said: “From the start, Amalgam Collection’s collaboration with Ferrari was turbocharged by the extraordinary success of Michael Schumacher and the Ferrari dream team of Ross Brawn, Jean Todt and Rory Byrne, that supported him to a record series of championship wins. It was a dominance of F1 the like of which we’d never witnessed. We are privileged to honour Michael Schumacher with this collection that captures each of the beautiful Ferraris, that took him to a series of five World Championships”.

SCHUMACHER

Michael Schumacher is deservedly regarded by many as the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time. The first driver to achieve seven FIA Formula 1 World Championships, and the first German to win one at all, he was at times controversial, but always a genius behind the wheel. Schumacher was noted throughout his career for his ability to produce fast laps at crucial moments in a race and to push his car to the very limit for sustained periods, particularly in difficult, wet conditions. He played a key role in bringing Benetton their only ever Constructors’ Championship title and in ending Ferrari’s biggest ever 16-year wait, by taking the Constructors’ Title in 1999. Schumacher proceeded to win five successive Drivers’ titles in a row, a record that seemed until recent years unlikely to ever be beaten. 2002 remains a stand-out year for the German, finishing on the podium in every race and winning the title with a record six races remaining. Schumacher also possesses the highest number of fastest laps with 77 and the largest number of Formula 1 hat-tricks (achieving pole position, the race win and the fastest lap) ever recorded, with 22. Further proof of his extraordinary abilities, if any were needed, are his 15 consecutive seasons with at least one Grand Prix victory.

His 91 wins, 64 further podiums and 1,566 career points, from just 306 race starts, are all further testament to his extraordinary driving ability. No matter how successful future drivers may prove, Schumacher will always maintain pole position on the grid of Formula 1 history.
