The detail on these replicas is exquisite.
Amalgam Collection has released its latest scale model replica, and this time, the subject is the engine and transmission of the Ferrari Daytona SP3.
What you see here is a 1:4 scale replica of the F140HC engine with its seven-speed gearbox, which collectors and enthusiasts can now add to Amalgam's existing scale model of the car itself. This company prides itself on intricate detailing, and nowhere is that more evident than in this powertrain model.
Since the subject is so special (Ferrari's most potent combustion engine to date with 829 horsepower), Amalgam will produce just 599 examples of the replica.
"The Ferrari Daytona SP3 Engine and Gearbox is one of the most exciting new models we will launch in 2023," said brand director Sandy Copeman. "It may well be the last of Ferrari's naturally aspirated power units, and we are delighted to be working alongside the design and engineering teams at Ferrari to capture this piece of modern automotive history and deliver it at 1:4 scale."
To ensure millimetric accuracy, the model is based on CAD data supplied by Ferrari. Once received, Amalgam developed patterns for every visible area of the package, scaling down the data for a perfect match. Molds for individual parts were then made and filled with metal, carbon fiber, and rubber, while many other parts were CNC machined.
Amalgam says it took more than 3,500 hours of development to create, and the first prototype still needed to be signed off on by Ferrari. But once it was accurate enough, production could begin. Over the course of 325 hours of casting, fitting, adjustment, painting, and assembly, the end product measures 17 inches in length and 7 inches in height.
For the serious Ferrari fan, this is a fantastic accompaniment to the company's numerous other models of Maranello-made machines, including the Ferrari F1-75 single-seater. For the truly passionate, Amalgam will even make a scale model of your exact Ferrari.
Of course, none of these models come cheap. The Daytona SP3 Engine and Gearbox scale model costs a scandalous $15,250. Alternatively, you could just get a Lego model of the entire car.
