Togi is an Italian model car producer and the only manufacturer totally dedicated to Alfa Romeo models. Made in the curious scale of 1/23, Togi claims that this scale is best suited to faithfully replicate the details of the originals. Each of the models measures some 20 cm or 8 inches in length.
In 1957 Tonino Lorenzini, after having worked for several years for Alfa Romeo, officially founds Togi in Milan. Faithful to his passion for the "Biscione" cars and thanks to the friendship and affection with his ex-collegues, he creates towards the years a magnificent range of die-cast metal car models reproducing, apart from a few rare exceptions, ALFA ROMEO cars.
The Togi models range starts with the TURBO SPECIAL, racing single-seaters with original lines, and carries on with the GIULIETTA SPRINT, the 159, the fantastic GIULIETTA SS, the GIULIA BERLINA, the 2600 SPRINT, the DUETTO, the GIULIA GT JUNIOR, the MONTREAL, the CARABO, the 2000 BERLINA, the ALFASUD, the 1750 of 1930, the GIULIETTA SPIDER, the LANCIA LAMBDA of 1922 and the 164.
All the models are manufactured in several variations apart from the basic one, and the production is limited to a few thousands of pieces (in some cases a few hundreds) for each version. Common to all the models is the exclusive scale 1:23, the demountable wheels with the characteristical Togi key, the assembled or kit version, the hand-made finishings.
The continuity in the Togi tradition, in the respect for the original values, is assured in the future by FongalTogi, born in the artigianal die-casting company that for 40 years supplied the Togi company with most of the metal parts.
