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.

To this day, Johnson still has fond memories of this car and the dominant era for his team; “Those Sierras were the best Touring Cars on the planet, and we were completely and totally on top of our game.”

Short of winning the Bathurst 1000, there’s probably no better race to take your first race win than an event with as much historical significance in Australian racing as the Sandown 500 – and that’s exactly what Cam Waters and Richie Stanaway did in 2017.
Starting from pole, the young dynamic duo were the in-form drivers for the weekend and ultimately won the race by only 6-tenths over a fast finishing Scott McLaughlin to have their names etched in the record books alongside Australia’s most illustrious racing royalty.
