ART MEETS SPEED WITH THE NEW FERRARI GT3 RACER CREATED BY AMALGAM COLLECTION

The world-renowned artisans at Amalgam Collection have unveiled for the first time their most recent development at 1:8 scale: the Ferrari 296 GT3..



The world-renowned artisans at Amalgam Collection today exhibited their most recent piece of modelmaking art at 1:8 scale. The powerfully functional and technically virtuosic Ferrari 296 GT3 is certainly one of the most exciting designs to emerge from Maranello in recent years, and Amalgam’s model does full justice to this extraordinarily beautiful car. Following the global release last week, after a deep examination of all aspects of the prototype model by Ferrari's design and engineering teams, Amalgam are releasing a video taking a deep dive into the details of the 57 centimetre (22 inch) long replica.


Limited to an edition of just 199 pieces, each model is the result of 3000 plus hours of skilled design and development.The basis of the model is the original CAD data for the 499P shared with Amalgam by Ferrari, 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 standard specification Limited Edition represents the 296 GT3 in the launch specification, finished in its deep, rich and iconic Rosso Imola paint. The model features openable doors, allowing close examination of the interior, including the Bosch monitor and control console, along with every minute detail, down to the individual stitches in the car's racing harness.


Drivers, teams and sponsors of Ferrari GT3 cars can also commission a superbly and deeply detailed model replicating every aspect of their car’s specification through Amalgam Collection’s exclusive Bespoke Team Livery service. Sandy Copeman, Founder and Brand Director at Amalgam Collection, explains: “Utilising our close relationship with Ferrari, we have access to detailed specification data enabling the most faithful representation of each client’s car in all details. From the livery design and sponsor decals on the exterior, right down to the harness and the material of the steering wheel, every visible aspect of a specific race car will be perfectly reproduced in miniature.”



Production of Amalgam’s Ferrari 296 GT3 is limited to 199 pieces. The model is priced at £13,400 in standard Rosso Corso livery, but can also be ordered in a bespoke configuration—which allows you to specify everything from paint finish to interior details
