If a replica costs this much, we don’t even want to know the price tag the real thing carries.
This is a 1:1 replica of a Ferrari SF1000 steering wheel, and it costs quite a bit of money—enough to buy a decent secondhand vehicle, in fact. It has an asking price of a whopping $5,001 (more than P240,000), but Amalgam Collection says you pay for it via four interest-free $1,250 installments. And no, we don’t know what the stray $1 is there for.
Anyway, as with most things Amalgam, the attention to detail in this replica is incredible. The company says it was built using material specifications and original CAD data “supplied directly from the drawing office of Ferrari.”
The quality here shows: Every switch, dial, and button is exactly where it should be. Amalgam says this product “has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation,” so chances are neither Sebastian Vettel nor Charles Leclerc will find anything to complain about when it comes to the accuracy of this thing.
Too expensive? You’ll be glad to know that a smaller 1:4 scale model of the tiller is also available with a much more closer-to-earth price tag of $246 (almost P12,000). Just like the full-size version, it was built using official Ferrari specifications and reviewed by the carmaker’s engineers.
We’d kind of feel silly playing pretend with the smaller one, though, so we’d still opt for the 1:1 build given the money. If you want one, you might want to act soon as only 250 of these replicas have been built. If you’re looking to make a Ferrari fan’s Christmas this year, you know what to do.
