Corona and price increases

We have had the following information from Authentic but it will apply to all manufacturers.

 

“Our industry’s biggest tangible exposure is to the US dollar. Clearly yesterday was a little ground breaking, as the AUD fell below 60 cents against the USD for the first time since 2003 and as I type this, it has plunged to 55 cents.

This is going to have a tremendous impact on all models moving forward, both on those already announced, and those that will be announced in the future.

As the AUD began its decline against the USD, we have tried to hold model prices as announced, however, moving forward we will need to make price adjustments to mitigate the currency rate.

To give you some sort of context, when we started the company back in late 2017, the AUD was over 80 cents against the USD. In the first 2 and half months of this year, the dollar has dropped 12 cents, or nearly 20% and looks like it will continue to drop.

With no real certainty on anything at the moment, it’s too early to say where we will land on price, however, its important to let you know that the models that we said were in production at the moment will end up needing to be released at a different price point than announced. We will update you as soon as we have a fixed price on soon to be delivered models.

Kind regards,

William Hall – Director
Authentic Collectables”

 

No increases have been indicated as yet but we will advise you when we know anything further.

Scott McLaughlin’s pole in Race 19 of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship at Queensland Raceway was a special one given it was the 100th championship pole for DJR / DJR Team Penske in its history.
The team made its championship debut in the opening round of the 1981 season at Symmons Plains in Tasmania with Dick Johnson at the helm of his famous Tru-Blu Falcon XD, built after the disastrous ‘rock’ incident at Bathurst the year prior.

Johnson claimed his first championship pole position (and first race victory) that weekend, the first of 100 poles for the team, which became DJR Team Penske in 2015.
Fans of the team can now celebrate this historic milestone with this huge limited edition photographic print produced by Authentic Collectables in association with the team at V8 Sleuth.
This is an unbelievable print which features each and every one of the 100 pole position cars in the championship over the course of the history of the team including details about the car, driver, year and race where each pole position was claimed.
Measuring a massive 594mm X 1000mm, this print is 1 metre tall, printed offset in an individually-numbered limited edition on 250gsm matte paper stock and officially licensed by the team.
As an added bonus, we have also been given permission to replicate the ‘100 Poles’ poster that was used by the team to celebrate the achievement at the race which will be included with each print ordered – making this a very special collectable set.
This is the ultimate collector’s print for Dick Johnson Racing / DJR Team Penske and Ford motorsport fans.

Covering four decades, this official book captures the amazing history of Dick Johnson Racing and DJR Team Penske via the racing achievements of its individual race cars.
With nearly 50 cars profiled, the book follows on from the sold-out publication by the same production house documenting the history of every Holden Racing Team race car.
This book will feature all of the iconic Johnson team cars, starting with the Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD that Johnson drove at Bathurst in 1980, infamously colliding with a rock that had spilled out onto the circuit.
It features the famous Greens-Tuf Falcons and Mustangs, turbocharged Shell Sierras and Falcons as well as the current-day Shell V-Power Ford Mustang Supercars run by DJR Team Penske – and every car in between!
The team’s Bathurst and Championship-winning cars are included, each car’s racing history presented in a stunning layout along with a special focus placed on each car’s performances at ‘The Great Race’ at Bathurst.
A wide range of never-before-published photos will feature in this book packed with rare content.
This hardcover book will be produced in an exclusive limited edition print run and each copy will come with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson making it not only an official historic resource but a truly special collectable item.
Australian-made and printed in Australia via green printing methods, this book is a must-have for the collection of any Dick Johnson, DJR/DJRTP, Ford, Bathurst, motorsport, motoring or automotive enthusiast.
Currently scheduled to arrive in January 2020 (to ensure the full 2019 season and its cars are included), this book can’t be missed.
