Continuing the Biante association with Red Bull Holden Racing Team they are very excited to announce models in 1:12 scale from the start of the season in Adelaide for both the #88 and #97 cars, along with the Bathurst-winning #97 of Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander plus the #888 of Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes.

Phone number must be supplied.
Preorders close 18th January.
All models listed here are sealed resin and priced at $500 each.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, which should be welcome news for many die-cast model car collectors. Additionally, the model has numerous features including a highly detailed engine bay, faithfully replicated interior, nicely replicated 19” staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented chrome detailing and outstanding finishing all round. It’s an exceptional model of a car that will one day be considered an absolute classic and one for the history books.
New announcement from Biante for that latest Allan Moffat Collection Model.

Ford Sierra RS500 – 1989 Inter-tec 500 Winner – #39 Allan Moffat / Klaus Niedzwiedz
As we all know Allan is now 80 years old and like many people his age, he is facing a battle with dementia. While Allan is happy, comfortable and being well cared for by family and friends, it is gradually becoming more difficult for him to work his way through signing each individual certificate for each model we release. With this in mind and out of respect and care for Allan we are announcing that this next release in Biante’s Allan Moffat Collection will be the final model that comes with a hand-signed certificate. In a very fitting end to this phase in the Collection we have chosen the car that, alongside Klaus Niedzwiedz, Allan drove to his final win in his final race, the 1989 Fuji 500-winning Ford Sierra RS500. Using our own diecast tooling with opening doors, bonnet and hatch we feel this will surely be a welcome and valued addition to the Allan Moffat Collection.
This however does not mean the end of the Allan Moffat Collection overall. There are still interesting items left to be produced and added to the Collection and we are working with Allan’s management on how best to continue the Collection in the most respectful way for both Allan and collectors of his very popular model cars.
This model is a faithful replication of its 1:1 counterpart and some of the features include fully opening parts, realistic interior, high quality paint finishing, pose-able steering and will be an exclusive limited edition of 804 with a numbered certificate. If you’re a Monaro fan or a classic Australian road car collector then this is another model that should be added to your collection.
