Ever since their first car rolled off the assembly line in 1947, Ferrari has been an unmistakable symbol of power and wealth. Limited to those with far deeper pockets than most, owning one of Italy’s Prancing Horses is merely a fuel-injected fever dream to the average working Joe.
Now, thanks to a new licensing deal Ferrari has struck with Playmobil, that dream is closer to reality! Far from a stranger to the world of tantalizing transportation, the German toy manufacturer is adding the iconic Italian thoroughbred to an ever-expanding collection of cars that includes everything from the gull-winged Mercedes-Benz 300 SL to the compact Mini Cooper.
Kicking off this new arrangement, Playmobil has released its Ferrari SF90 Stradale. Crafted in 1/24 scale and measuring 27 inches long, the replica is Ferrari’s first official foray into Playmobil’s fleet of plastic cars — with more models set for the showroom soon. Encompassing all the authenticity of its real-world counterpart, the SF90 Stradale comes to kids and collectors in a beautiful coat of Rosso Corsa paint and features an engine cover that reveals the car’s turbocharged eight-cylinder engine.
Also included on the shrunken supercar are a host of bona fide details certain to be appreciated by automotive aficionados of any age. Made up of sleek, aerodynamic lines, the SF90 Stradale features a removable roof and windshield for easy interior access, an illuminated dashboard, a steering wheel, and enough space to comfortably seat the two included Playmobil figures.
Moving to the exterior, fans will find rear cooling vents, a front splitter, and genuine Ferrari rims complimented by an opening trunk, doors, and gas tank. To further capture the realistic look and feel of this new model, the SF90 Stradale also includes functioning headlights, taillights, and plenty of official Ferrari badging. This little luxury model will look great whether displayed on a shelf or speeding through your favourite sandbox!
Suitable for kids and collectors five years of age and older, the 43-piece Playmobil Ferrari SF90 Stradale also includes a number of extra accessories ranging from the aforementioned pair of Playmobil figures to golf bags, clubs, luggage, and more! A trio of AAA batteries (not included) are required to power the car’s light-up functions.
Priced at $79.99 USD (compared to the $518,000 starting price of the actual car) and available for purchase right now, this new model is certain to make a stunning addition to any collection!
