The following models in 1:18 scale have been released and will be here next week.
This model is available as a single car or a twinset.
We only have one twinset left and 2 single models so if you want any of them grab them now.
Initial build numbers for the VN SS Group A were predicted to be 500 units, but the actual number fell short of that figure with only 302 cars eventually being made. Despite the main colour being the Durif Red, there were two rare models that were produced with the Durif Red paint job but were later sprayed a metallic black as part of a prize promotion for the 1991 Tooheys Bathurst 1000. The “Win one for you and a mate” promotion featured two VN Group A’s which featured a red racing stripe down the lower body, special Tooheys 1000 decals and a 1000V8 & 2000V8 NSW registered number plates, with the “1000V8” edition being replicated for this single model release.
As part of the 1991 running of The Great Race, naming rights sponsor Tooheys held a competition called “Win one for you and a mate” which featured two rare Metallic Black Holden VN Commodore SS Group A’s as the prize for a lucky punter and their best mate.
These special edition Group A’s were originally produced from the Holden factory line in the original Durif Red paint job but were later sprayed the custom Metallic Black and featured a red racing stripe around the lower body, special Tooheys 1000 decals and a 1000V8 & 2000V8 NSW registered number plates, both of which have been replicated to form this twinset.
The VN Group A mould is perhaps one of the finest examples of an Australian die-cast model produced by Biante. With standard features you would expect from us such as fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, interior, exterior and undercarriage combined with even higher detailed characteristics including fine seat flocking in the interior, raised “Goodyear Eagle” lettering on the tyre walls and authentic bonnet hinges and gas struts, this is an amazing limited edition twinset. We have even replicated the correct build numbers from the Holden factory for both of these VN’s on the dash!
This twinset will be produced with special edition exterior packaging with each model coming in its own Biante protective foam clam with them both contained within the one exterior box. One numbered Certificate of Authenticity will be included with each twinset based on the number produced. Ensure you don’t miss out on this rare 1:18 Scale Biante twinset by placing your pre-orders as soon as possible.
