This week Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present two great new models; the FPV GT-P in Rapid Yellow in 1:18 scale and the 1:12 Red Bull Racing Australia Holden VF Commodore driven by Jamie Whincup to win the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
1:18 FPV BF GT-P
LIMITED EDITION OF 360 PIECES
Released in October 2005, the FPV BF Mk I GT series consisted of the GT and GT-P variations. Both variants were powered by 5.4-litre Boss 290 V8 petrol engines with either six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Compared to the previously released BA GT, there were a number of notable differences on the new versions, including revised front bumpers, fog lights, ‘jewel-effect’ tail lights and twin exhaust outlets.
Produced in high-quality sealed body resin, the GT-P is a finely crafted model. The interior detail has been expertly replicated which can clearly be seen through the clear windows and the exterior lines are very sharp. The exterior finishing and colour of this model is a real standout too. The Rapid Yellow paint job and Black sticker kit work so well together and it will simply be a beautiful collectors model to display.
1:12 HOLDEN VF COMMODORE
V8 SUPERCAR COTF
RED BULL RACING AUSTRALIA
#88 DRIVER: JAMIE WHINCUP
2017 VIRGIN AUSTRALIA SUPERCARS CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER
LIMITED EDITION OF 100 PIECES
Whincup’s 2017 season across the 26 races yielded four wins, two pole positions, 15 podium finishes, 18 top fives and 22 top 10s with a 100 percent finishing record across the championship. His victory gave Triple Eight Race Engineering its eighth Supercars Drivers' Championship in 10 years, but importantly its first as the factory racing team of GM Holden.
As is standard with our 1:12 models, there are numerous features worth noting, including injection-moulded glass housings for added strength and accuracy, photo etched parts, detailed brakes and wheels, the hamburger camera on the roof and the GPS tracker on the boot. Despite the model being produced in sealed body resin (in order to maintain an affordable price point for collectors) there has been no expense spared in replicating the interior cockpit. The interior detail includes full decoration, faithfully replicated seat and painted interior characteristics along with fabric seat harness and window netting.
This model has been produced in an exclusive limited edition of only 100 and is presented in deluxe packaging along with a commemorative flyer and numbered Certificate of Authenticity. It’s an amazing collectors piece and one that shouldn’t be missed.
