Holden VF Com­modore in 1995 Tooheys 1000 win­ner’s liv­ery


Model Cars is ex­cited to an­nounce the very first re­lease in a fas­ci­nat­ing new range for col­lec­tors, called the Biante Mod­ern His­torics se­ries. This bril­liant se­ries fo­cuses on repli­cat­ing iconic Aus­tralian race­car liv­er­ies from the past on mod­ern, con­tem­po­rary rac­ing cars with the first edi­tion of this range be­ing the 1:18 scale Holden VF Com­modore fea­tur­ing the fa­mous Cas­trol liv­ery, as raced by Larry Perkins and Rus­sell In­gall to win the 1995 Tooheys Bathurst 1000. Yes, our cover car!

1970 Ford XY Fair­mont GS


Grand Sport Rally Pack was a fac­tory op­tion avail­able on a range of mod­els, from the XW to XC. By tick­ing a box on the or­der form, cus­tomers could add sev­eral ‘sporty’ fea­tures to their new Fal­con with­out fork­ing out for the GT. The fea­tures in­cluded GS side stripes and badg­ing, GS in­signia on a three-spoke deep-dished steer­ing wheel, woodgrain ac­cents, GT dash speedo, tacho, odome­ter, oil, wa­ter, and fuel gauges and stain­less steel wheel cov­ers. All you have to do to or­der your 1:18 ver­sion, in Elec­tric Blue with a Grand Sport Orange stripe, is go to www.clas­s­ic­car­lecta­

Given that it’s the 20th an­niver­sary of their Bathurst 1000 win, it seemed fit­ting that the first model would repli­cate Larry and Rus­sell’s 1995 liv­ery, an ab­so­lute clas­sic among rac­ing en­thu­si­asts. This land­mark diecast model is based on Biante’s pop­u­lar cur­rent Holden VF Com­modore V8 Su­per­car, which fea­tures fully open­ing parts and nicely repli­cated de­tail.

As an added bonus, this model comes with a Cer­tifi­cate of Au­then­tic­ity signed by both Larry and Rus­sell and it has been pro­duced in a strictly lim­ited edi­tion of 1002 pieces. So don’t miss out. Whether you’re into build­ing fan­tasy ‘Code 3’ mod­els, or sim­ply a diehard fan of clas­sic race cars and their liv­er­ies, this is a must-have col­lectable. See your lo­cal Biante stock­ist or visit Biante on­line at for all the de­tails.
