This week we have two hot new HSVs to tempt you with, our 1:12 GTSR in stunning Spitfire and the 1:18 E3 25th Anniversary GTS in crisp Heron White.
1:12 HSV GTSR
LIMITED EDITION OF 220 PIECES
Biante Model Cars are very proud to release the Spitfire GTSR in the centrepiece 1:12 scale.
The menacing GTSR boasted the most powerful LSA V8 HSV had ever offered, with a massive 435kW of power and 740Nm of torque to back up its head-turning looks. Everything about the GTSR screamed high-performance. The stance is lower, meaner and more muscular than ever before, with wider front fenders to house the all-new, forged 20" "SV Panorama" alloy wheels.
This model has been produced from the genuine HSV CAD data for superb accuracy and detail, from those sensational alloy wheels in Hyper Dark Stainless to the HSV Aeroflow Performance rear wing, produced as a separate piece to avoid damage during shipping.
As with all Biante 1:12 scale models, the GTSR has been produced in high quality sealed body resin in very limited numbers based on pre-orders and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and premium packaging.
1:18 HSV E3 25TH ANNIVERSARY GTS
LIMITED EDITION OF 402 PIECES
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:18 Scale Holden Special Vehicles E3 25th Anniversary GTS in Heron White.
The E Series HSVs was introduced in 2006 on the back of the new VE Commodore range, with the E3 versions released in 2010. In 2012, HSV announced a very special edition of the E3 GTS to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of HSV. It featured special lightweight, 20-inch forged-alloy wheels, “Vector” bonnet scoops and side vents, larger six-piston brakes, unique seat embroidery, exterior badging, sill plates and an EDI start-up screen. It was limited to only 125 units and retailed at $84,990, only $2,000 over the standard GTS, a very attractive price considering all the upgrades!
The 1:18 scale replica of this model is an exceptional collector’s piece. Produced in sealed body resin the first thing you notice upon inspection is its significant weight and quality of craftsmanship. The body lines are beautifully replicated with the door and panel gaps as realistic as possible. The model includes a number of very nice features including the badge work, metal etched grille in the front bumper assembly along with the metal etched side vent, the hood scoops and the new wheels are presented extremely well.
Upon looking through the clear windows you can see a very high attention to detail right down to the 25th Anniversary seat trimmings, dashboard instrumentation and logos. You can even clearly see the HSV EDI logo on the start up screen such is the level of detail.
The 1:18 Scale E3 25th Anniversary GTS is a must for all local muscle car fans. With only 402 produced and featuring a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, don’t miss out.
