Holden HZ GTS Aztec Silver Metallic

Buy it now before it gets away.

The HZ series was launched in October 1977 and was the final revision of the Holden HQ series.
The introduction of the Radial Tuned Suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes was a dramatic improvement, which brought remarkable advances in ride, handling and improved safety.
Holden had mastered Australian conditions better than any other on the road before.
The HZ was also the last of the traditional sized Holdens, until the smaller, lighter Commodore replaced it the following year in 1978.

DRIVER: JOHN ZAPPIA
2018/2019 CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON
HIDDEN VALLEY WINNER
ETA Q4 2019.

Biante Model Cars are very excited to present the 1:18 Scale “Zapsrat” HQ Monaro Top Doorslammer driven to victory by John Zappia during the Hidden Valley round of the 2018/2019 Championship Season.

Simply put, John Zappia is a drag racing legend in Australia. He (along with Zapsrat) is the most successful Australian Top Doorslammer champion by a big margin, a title he has clinched ten years running along with a list of other achievements which include; 2 x 400 Thunder Pro Slammer Champion, ANDRA Top Doorslammer 400meter ET Record Holder, and 400 Thunder ET Record Holder.

The 1:18 scale replica of this iconic Top Door Slammer is quite impressive to behold. It has been produced in sealed body resin with a removable front engine cover that reveals the impressive gear underneath that powers the record breaking dragster to extreme speeds. Other nice features include the Hossier wheels which include the raised logos on the sides of the tyres and excellent finishing throughout. The stance of the model is quite impressive and will display very well.

After the first edition sold out in record time last year, we wanted to make this second version available which includes the new updated livery and started the 2018/19 season with a dominant victory.

Produced in an exclusive limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity this is a model that shouldn’t be missed.

By the mid-1950s, Holden was well and truly established as market leader, but their design was looking dated.

In response, the wholly Australian-designed Holden FE was introduced. The FE improvements included longer wheelbase and wider track, a one-piece curved window increasing visibility.

There was also a new 12 volt electrical system, a hydraulically operated clutch and a slightly more powerful version of the well-proven ‘grey engine’.

Holden VF Commodore Motorsport Edition 2017 – Heron White

Holden VF Commodore Motorsport Edition 2017 – Heron White

B182717M $190

To celebrate the last year of locally built Commodores, Holden introduced the Motorsport Edition range to the public. They consisted of the ‘Magnum’ – a SSV based ute, the ‘Director’ – a Calais based sedan, and the ‘Motorsport Edition’ – a SSV based sedan.
The Motorsport Edition sedan featured all the fruit from the standard SSV Redline, but also added the Magnetic Ride Control system (a feature previously only given to HSV’s), together with some suspension, brake, and wheel upgrades. The other major area of difference was the exclusive cosmetic package which featured an embroidered dash, a black painted roof, red or black driving light surrounds, red or black mirror scalps, new red-lined alloys, unique badging, unique decal set, individual vehicle numbering, and a special build option code ‘KOM’. Which of course stands for King of the Mountain — a reference to both Peter Brock and the fact Commodore won the Bathurst 1000 24 times.

Similar to our 1:18 SS-V Redline models, the Motorsport Edition will be produced in die-cast with fully opening parts featuring, faithfully replicated interior, nicely replicated staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.

As with all Biante 1:18 scale models, these items have been produced in a limited edition and will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
