Biante Website Releases - Wednesday, February 6th
It's a big week for 12 hour fans with the 2019 race yesterday, while tomorrow we'll be releasing the 2016-winning McLaren 650S GT3 in 1:18 scale. For custom car fans we have our final batch of the diecast 1:18 Ford XB Falcon "Black Interceptor".
The striking #59A McLaren 650S GT3 of Shane van Gisbergen, Alvaro Parente and Jonathon Webb triumphed at the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour claiming the marque's first major win at Mount Panorama and the GT3 model's biggest success. Any win at Bathurst is special, however victory at the circuit’s 12 Hour GT classic is fast becoming a ‘must-achieve’ on the resume of racing drivers all over the world.
Victory wasn't totally straightforward with the 650S grinding to a halt with Parente at the helm on Pit Straight on lap 101. Luckily he was able to re-set the car and resume, catching back up most of the time under the next Safety Car period. Later in the day van Gisbergen picked up a drive-through penalty for speeding in pit lane, again getting much of it back under the next Safety Car period.
Our 650S features opening doors to show off the fully-replicated race interior, while the twin-turbo V8 is clearly visible through the (sealed) engine cover. It is currently over-sold with very reserved numbers available on the website, so if you haven't already ordered one, don't delay when it's released tomorrow.
Meanwhile this stock of the beastly Black Interceptor Ford XB Falcon Hardtop is from our final production run with this tooling. After the last allocation from Autoart quickly sold out last year, once these are gone, they're gone. Featuring all opening panels to reveal the highly-detailed engine bay and interior of this iconic machine.
Please be sure to get in quick to avoid disappointment as we don't want you to miss out. They will be available to purchase online at www.biante.com.au from 12 Midday WST, Wednesday, February 6th.
