Our Finest Events
Our partnerships continue to mature with some exciting new developments and opportunities for 2024 in the pipeline with the likes of Alan Thornton, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, INDYCAR and Ferrari, to name a few. Here are a couple of outstanding events we participated in.
The standout moment of the year was the sale for a staggering $90,000 of a unique model of the 'Tailor-Made' Ferrari 812 Competizione that we created and donated for auction at the Ferrari Foundation Charity Gala in New York City in October. The model attracted the admiring glances of F1 drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc, as well as Chief Designer Flavio Manzoni, before fetching $90,000 in the auction. All proceeds will be used to fund the education support projects that are the focus of the New York based Ferrari Foundation’s charitable activities.
Earlier in the year a specially commissioned NTT INDYCAR SERIES 1:8 scale model decorated in the livery of the 2023 Detroit Grand Prix, sold for $50,000. Setting at the time a new record for an Amalgam model sold at auction, it raised substantial funds for local charities: Belle Isle Conservancy, Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan, Detroit Public Safety Foundation, Detroit 300 Conservancy and Pope Francis Center.
Our collaboration with photographer Mitch Payne bore rich fruit this year, resulting in a series of exotic composite images of our models. Captured in Mitch's East London Studio, his shoot showcases his dramatic signature style, often with an abstract injection of shape and colour. The phenomenal quality of our models shines through, challenging the viewer to differentiate model from reality.
Our Finest Events
We were present at many of the most iconic and exclusive races and events across the globe this year. From Retromobile and Goodwood to the Ferrari suite at Le Mans during their historic victory, we were there with our models proudly on display. It was an extraordinary year for us, as we continue to create and extend partnerships with some of the most important events and the strongest brands in the world.
Our deep relationship with Ferrari brought us to Corse Clienti events, and ultimately the Finali Mondiali at Mugello.
McLaren offered us a personal invitation to an exclusive dinner at Nobu Miami, where we presented three 1:18 scale models of the MCL35M, each one signed by Lando Norris and Zak Brown.
Meanwhile, in China, we partnered with DrivePro and THE RAKE magazine to present "Fiorano - Road to Glory", a display of 30 iconic and exquisite model cars representing Ferrari’s history, giving the invited guests an unforgettable experience.
