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.classiccarlectables.com.au
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.
