Late in September in the build up to the Great Race, Garth Tander and HRT unveiled a menacing Star Wars: The Force Awakens livery to much fan fare which was the first activation of a collaboration between Holden and The Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand. The predominantly black racing livery featured the new character Kylo Ren and his lightsaber on one side of the car, and a First Order Stormtrooper on the other – Kylo Ren and the Stormtrooper replacing the iconic HRT driver and lion.

Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts other than the boot this limited edition model  features the full race livery as fielded by both cars on the Sunday.

Holden HZ GTS Sedan – Flamenco Red

This 1:18 Scale model has been released and we have one available for purchase.

The  model number is A73342 and it is priced at $250.

If you want it don’t hang around. Grab it now.

The HZ Holden was the last model released in the line of HQ-based Holden’s and is historically notable to enthusiasts for a couple of reasons.
The HZ was the first full sized Holden to feature Radial Tuned Suspension which was a far superior suspension system compared to previously seen examples in the motoring industry. RTS would not only dramatically improve the driving characteristics of the HZ but it also saw a shift in the Australian car industry in a far broader sense as it saw Ford and Chrysler later respond with updated suspension systems of their own.

The HZ GTS Sedan was undoubtably the flagship model of the HZ range but the Monaro nameplate and badges no longer remained which was an unusual move by Holden and a source of much confusion at the time. Despite the lack of official name, many felt that the GTS still had many Monaro-esque qualities including subtle detailing, front and rear spoilers, bumpers and sports wheels which all combined to make the GTS a pretty attractive package. Some reports suggest that the HZ GTS was one of the rarer cars produced during this era by Holden which could be attributed to the relatively short time frame the model was available to the market with production having ceased by 1980.

This 1:18 Scale replica of the Holden HZ GTS Sedan is yet another remarkable example of craftsmanship by Autoart. It features fully opening parts, beautifully detailed engine bay, interior, boot and undercarriage, lovely sports wheels and countless steps of decoration to achieve the overall high finish quality of the model.

This will surely be a popular model for not only Holden fans but for all historic Australian road car collectors.
