Amalgam 1:18 Ferrari F50

A mid-modern classic from Ferrari comes to life in 1:18 scale from Amalgam, welcome their version of the Ferrari F50.  This example is 100% sealed and executed in resin.  Love the detailing, we’re sure you’ll agree.  The price to own one is set at $793 US.  No word on alternative colours, question Amalgam here.

About the Ferrari F50…  “So called to celebrate the Scuderia’s fiftieth birthday, Luca Montezemolo stated that only 349 examples would be produced, one less than they thought they could sell. This alludes to the desirability of this limited-edition supercar, which was the next in the series post-F40, this time powered by a 4.7 litre V12 engine that was based on the 3.5 litre V12 unit used in the 1990 Formula One contender piloted by Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell. As such, the F50 was the closest machine to a road-going Formula One car that Ferrari had built to date.

A purist, track-inspired approach fused supreme engine performance with a car bereft of power steering, power-assisted braking and ABS brakes. However, the chassis construction made full use of complex composite materials and Formula One inspired construction methods, not to mention aerodynamics. The F50 features a removable hardtop so that its passengers are able to experience some of the thrills of the Formula One driving experience.”

    For that amount of money, they still got the rear wheels wrong. The face of the rear wheels should be concave and different from the front.

    I’d say the most striking view of the real F50 is the view from behind with its wide seethrough mesh. Apparently 793$ are not enough to have an F50 in 1:18 scale with a nice thin mesh on its back to provide a nice view of the engine, gearbox and rear suspensions. The rear lights don’t look that good on photo 7/11.

    Poor effort for an almost $800 model, rear wheels are completely wrong as the rear set should be a deep concave shape, no rear mesh effect to view the engine, embarrassing.
