In 2010 HSV announced a special limited edition version of their performance Maloo R8 to mark the 20th Anniversary of the nameplate after its debut at the 1990 Sydney Motorshow. The limited edition ’20 Years of Maloo R8’ was announced with special features including the unique 20 inch Black and Chrome wheels (which were also seen on the GTS), ‘Vector E-vents’ and hood scoops along with a raft of other technological upgrades. With only 100 editions planned for the market, this limited edition performance ute available in a range of remarkable colour options was a fitting way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary milestone for HSV.
The 1:18 Scale replica of this model is an exceptional collector’s piece. Produced in sealed body resin the first thing you notice upon inspection is its significant weight and quality of craftsmanship. The body lines are beautifully replicated on this model given the way it has been produced with the joins between the panels looking as realistic as possible. Little features haven’t been overlooked including the impressive badge work, the metal etched grille in the front bumper assembly along with the metal etched side skirt vents, the hood scoops, side vents and the black and chrome wheels are all really nice highlights.
Despite being a sealed body model, no shortcuts have been taken with replicating the interior of this model. Upon looking through the clear windows you can see a very high attention to detail right down to the seat trimmings, dashboard instrumentation and logos.
This livery pays homage to the famous 1977 Ford 1-2 victory of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond’s 1977 Ford XC Falcons. The 1977 race is arguably one of the most famous victories in the history of the great race with Moffat Ford Dealer Team XC Hardtops forming up down Conrad Straight for the now iconic to footage.
The following models in 1:12 scale have just been announced and are available now to preorder.
All models are sealed body resin and priced at $475.
Preorders close 23/2/18 and require a phone number.
As is standard with the Biante 1:12 range, there will be numerous features worth noting with these models. They include using injection moulded glass housings for added strength and accuracy, photo etched parts, detailed brakes, wheels and we have also included the hamburger camera on the roof along with GPS tracker on the boot. Despite the models being produced in sealed body resin (in order to maintain an affordable price point for collectors) there has been no expense spared in replicating the interior cockpit. The interior detail includes full decoration, faithfully replicated seat and painted interior characteristics along with fabric seat harness and window netting.
It’s also important to note that these models will be produced with the rear wing as a separate piece to avoid damage during shipping. Once removed from the packaging, the separate rear wing easily sits in the two designated anchor points on the boot to complete the look of the model.
