Holden VF Commodore
Biante 1:1 Racing
2017 Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint
#8 Driver: Nick Percat
LIMITED EDITION OF 60 PIECES - RELEASED MAR 2019
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:12 Scale Biante 1:1 Racing Holden VF Commodore driven by Nick Percat at the 2017 Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint.
Everyone at Biante Model Cars were thrilled with the feedback we received when the Biante backed Nick Percat Holden VF Commodore was announced to the public in late March 2017. After a long association supporting and producing collectable scale models for Brad Jones Racing (and many other teams up and down pitlane), this was the first time a full Biante in-house designed and branded livery would be seen on a Supercar as part of a championship round.
After coming off the biggest crash of his career at the AGP due to a brake failure, Percat and his Biante backed Commodore were yet again in the race highlights for the wrong reasons at the Tasmania round. A wet track and atrocious visibility all combined when a racing tussle between Fabian Coulthard and Rick Kelly set off a chain reaction for essentially the back half of the field to create one of the biggest multi-car pile ups race fans have seen in recent memory, if not of all time. Unfortunately as racing goes, Percat was in the wrong place at the wrong time with this one and couldn't avoid being hit from multiple angles. While the race was ultimately awarded no points in the ensuing chaos, the unfortunate, yet spectacular racing incident will certainly be remembered by race fans for a very long time.
This 1:12 Scale replica of the Biante 1:1 Racing Supercar will be a really impressive size. It roughly measures over 40cm from front to rear, around 17 cm from mirror to mirror and around 12cm from wheel to roof. Other than the sheer beauty of the size of this model, there are numerous additional features worth noting. They include using injection moulded glass housings for added strength and accuracy, photo etched parts, detailed brakes, wheels and we have also included the hamburger camera on the roof along with 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.
It's also important to note that the model will be produced with the rear wing as a separate piece to avoid damage during shipping. Once removed from the packaging, the separate rear wing easily sits in the two designated anchor points on the boot to complete the look of the model.
This model will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with the number to be set based on pre-orders received and 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.
