Our final release for 2016 is the 1:18 Scale Erebus Motorsport V8 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG driven by Lee Holdsworth during the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship Season. The 2013 season saw numerous changes occur in the V8 Supercars Championship with the new Car Of The Future regulations opening the door for Betty Klimenko’s Erebus Motorsport V8 to run three Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG’s in the category after purchasing Stone Brothers Racing. Lee Holdsworth was joined by Tim Slade and Maro Engel to form the foundation drivers for the V8 team with each car carrying a different major sponsor and really looking the goods.
Holdsworth’s Irwin backed challenger would be right up there with the best liveries seen for the year and the 1:18 Scale replica of that car is certainly no different in the looks department. Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, high detail and faithfully replicated livery, this is a great model of a car that ultimately didn’t last long in the Championship with Erebus switching to running Holden Commodore’s at the start of the 2016 season. Available in a very limited edition of only 300 pieces with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, this model shouldn’t be missed when we make it available from 12 Midday WST Tomorrow, Friday December 16.
