Biante Website Releases - Wednesday, September 18th

This Wednesday we are proud to be releasing these three new models for Ford fans...

FORD FGX FALCON SUPERCAR
1973 BATHURST WINNER RETRO LIVERY

B18F18C 1:18 Limited Edition of 498 pieces
B43F18C 1:43 Limited Edition of 250 pieces

Biante Model Cars are very proud to present the Ford FGX Falcon Supercar in the famous livery of the 1973 Bathurst-winning XA GT in both 1:18 and 1:43 scales.

After the amazing response to the 20th Anniversary 1971 Retro FGX which quickly sold out, there was high demand from collectors asking for another version. Together with the fact we did the '68 and '72 versions in the VF Commodore, it was only fair Ford got a second edition!

Similar to the 1971 version, we’ve tried to include as many little details as possible to celebrate the original XA release (GT badging and blue two-tone to name a few!), but also honour the FGX as the book end to the Australian Falcon.

There’s something special about the way the simple 1970s' liveries look on the modern race cars and the 1973 factory Ford paintwork is no exception. It pays homage to the famous Bathurst win while still keeping to the unmistakable FGX lines.

The 1:18 features the standard opening doors and bonnet while the 1:43 version will be closed as per our normal FGX Supercar range. Together with the usual excellent detailing and stunning paintwork, these models should not be missed.

Both of these diecast models have been produced in exclusive limited editions based on order numbers and come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Additionally, we’re proud to announce that Allan Moffat has signed the certificate for the 1:18 version and it will form part of the Biante Allan Moffat Collection.

BR18307H
1:18 FPV BF GT
MENACE WITH ORANGE STRIPES

Limited Edition of 260 pieces

Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:18 Scale Ford Performance Vehicles BF GT in the rare Menace colour scheme.

Originally released in October 2005, the FPV BF 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 FPV BA GT, there were a number of notable differences on the new versions. The BF GT Series could be identified by their revised front bumpers, fog lights, ‘jewel-effect’ tail lights and twin exhaust outlets.

Mechanically there were slight differences between the two but the exterior of both the GT and the GT-P were a sight to behold. Both versions sat on 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels (although there was a slight variation in the design of the two) and featured eye-catching ‘BOSS 290’ graphics on the bonnet and GT / GT-P side stripes which added a real presence to the look of the car. The sticker kits worked very well in tandem with the array of bold colour options, they were unmistakably a modern Australian muscle car with clear influences from famous Ford GTs of the past.

Produced in high quality sealed body resin, the 1:18 FPV BF GT is a finely crafted model. Despite being a sealed body 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 ‘Menace’ metallic purple paint job together with the orange stripes strikes an impressive stance and it will be a beautiful model to display.


Limited numbers of these three items will be available to purchase online at biante.com.au from 12:00 midday (WST) Wednesday, September 18th.
