Holden VF 1:18 New Releases

The following models have been released and are able to be purchased now.

These models are both 1:18 scale.

2017 HOLDEN VF COMMODORE SSV REDLINE II SPITFIRE GREEN

2017 HOLDEN VF COMMODORE SSV REDLINE II SPITFIRE GREEN

B182717B $195

Our new 1:18 SS-V Redline model have been produced in die-cast (with fully opening parts), which should be welcome news for many die-cast model car collectors. Additionally, the models will have numerous features including, faithfully replicated interiors, nicely replicated 19” staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.

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.

1971 SANDOWN 250 HOLDEN TORANA LC GTR XU-1 PETER BROCK

This model is due for release next week and we have some available now.

 

1971 SANDOWN 250 HOLDEN TORANA LC GTR XU-1 PETER BROCK

1971 SANDOWN 250 HOLDEN TORANA LC GTR XU-1 PETER BROCK

A87166 $250

This model is limited to 852 so will sell out quickly.

Brock qualified his #45D XU-1 fourth on the grid, lapping in 1m24.9s, 3.5-seconds slower than the pole time of Allan Moffat’s factory XY GT-HO. The Bryan Byrt entered XY of Bob Skelton and Phil Barnes was second fastest with Brock’s teammate Bond qualifying third and joining him on the second row of the grid. But this race would prove to be one of survival rather than speed, especially given the pair of factory Falcons of Moffat and John French were out within eight laps and several Torana drivers found themselves in troubles with gear selector problems. Brock found himself as one of these and pitted within just a few laps to try and get the issued rectified. In the end he actually completed a large portion of the race stuck in top gear after a few pit stops to try and sort the issue proved no good.

“The problem I had with my car was really quite minor,” he reported post-race in his magazine column of the time. “Something was out of balance in the engine causing the gearshift rod retaining clips to crack due to vibration. It was a point which didn’t show up until the third or fourth lap of the race when I had the first of five or six pit stops.”

Brock also had a lucky escape around one-third distance when the Byrt Falcon of Skelton had a wild lose through the high-speed Causeway in front of him when a rear wheel came adrift and folded itself under the big Ford; the Torana pilot locked up all four wheels to ensure he didn’t become part of the accident scene! While Bond went on to win by five laps of the John Harding Ford-entered Falcon of Murray Carter, Brock eventually finish sixth overall and fourth in Class D after his delays with 121 of the 130 laps completed. Torana XU-1 drivers filled six of the top nine outright finishing positions with 25 of the 37 cars classified as finishers on what was a very good day’s work for Holden in the pre-Bathurst lead-up race.

This 1:18 Scale model will be produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, interior and undercarriage along with beautiful finishing throughout. Coming in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, it forms part of the Biante Peter Brock Collection and is one that shouldn’t be missed.

Please be aware that our stock will not arrive until after Bathurst.

1991 TOOHEYS 1000 HOLDEN VN COMMODORE SS GROUP A CROMPTON / JONES

B182706H $250

This model has been released and is available now to purchase.

We only have a couple left and there was very few made.

Following on from the very popular Allan Grice/Win Percy #16 car, we have the #7 sister car  to complete the set. Although similar in many ways to the #16 car (with the HRT specific tooling featuring engine bay, boot, undercarriage, wheels, and interior details), the Crompton/Jones car additionally has it’s own unique parts. This car carried not one, but 2 racecam cameras. One in the conventional location attached to the roll cage in the cockpit, and one smaller version recessed into the passenger side headlight!
During development of this model we have been careful to be as precise and accurate as we can in replicating these features to allow our collectors to take the time to spot and admire these little differences across our VN range. We hope you get as much satisfaction with this as we had in developing it!
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, boot, racing interior and a beautifully replicated livery, this is a must have limited edition collectable for Holden, HRT and Bathurst 1000 fans.

Please note this model is limited to only 400 pieces so be sure to get your order in quick.
