Each model of the Ferrari 250 GTO Limited Edition No.19 1:18 by Amalgam Collection is based on the 3705 GT chassis, as it raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 23-24, 1962, with Pierre Noblet and Jean Guichet at his wheel. Each model has been meticulously hand painted and detailed using a digital scan of an original 250 GTO and paint codes provided directly by Ferrari. Every detail of the dirt accumulated during the race is meticulously reproduced on the bodywork. All models are handcrafted and assembled by a small team of craftsmen. Over 800 hours were needed to develop the base model with parts designed by molding and photoengraving or precision machined.

With its incredible charisma, the 250 GTO is the ultimate expression of performance and style in the 250 GT series. It features a 2,953 cc Colombo V12 engine developing 300 hp coupled to a new fully synchronized 5-speed manual gearbox. Its body designed by Sergio Scaglietti is mounted on a 250 GT chassis, for a spectacular result of beauty. In recent years, original copies have repeatedly set auction price records. Some 250 GTOs currently hold value records with not less than $ 38.1 million recently for the 3851 GT chassis and $ 48.4 million for the 3413 GT chassis. Paying a little over € 1,000 for an exceptional 1:18 scale model no longer seems so exorbitant compared to these vertiginous prices …
