Ferrari The 458 Challenge also made it’s world debut at the Bologna Motor Show. This mid-rear V8 berlinetta is derived from the 458 Italia and is the fifth model used by Ferrari in its single-series racing programme. With the new 458 Challenge, Ferrari puts an exceptional combination of extreme performance, superb fun behind the wheel and unique driving emotions at the finger-tips of its sporting, professional and gentleman-driver clients.At 1:8 the model is approximately 60 cms (24 inches) long.  The model is extremely accurate and was developed using original data.  Each model is mounted on a carbon fibre base plate with a museum quality clear acrylic dust cover. Creating the master model took around 3,500 hours of work by a small team of highly skilled modelmakers. The master parts were then used to create moulds from which the components of each model of the limited edition of 199 were hand cast in prototyping resin. Each individual model then took around 300 hours more to finish and build. This model can be fully personalised to suit individual or team specifications. Made by Amalgam Fine Model Cars Ltd. for Ferrari. Outer package dimensions: 90 x 56 x 49 Weight: 22kg
