V8 SUPERCAR COTF
#1 DRIVERS: CRAIG LOWNDES / GREG MURPHY
1996 AMP BATHURST 1000 WINNER RETROSPECTIVE LIVERY
LIMITED EDITION OF 600 PIECES
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to announce the second edition in our Biante Modern Historics series. This series focuses on replicating iconic Australian race car liveries from the past on modern, contemporary racing cars with this edition being the 1:18 Scale Holden VF Commodore featuring the famous livery raced by Craig Lowndes and Greg Murphy to win the 1996 AMP Bathurst 1000.
While a trend has developed in recent years of top tier V8 Supercar teams occasionally racing with historic tribute liveries at particular events, the theme of replicating historic liveries on modern body shapes has been going on behind the scenes for a long time. Many enthusiasts and collectors across Australia have found themselves wondering what some of the famous liveries of the past would look like on modern cars, with some even going as far to produce their own fantasy “code 3” model cars among a variety of other creative mediums. This is a passion that Biante have admired from afar for quite a long time and are now proud to bring this interesting concept to the wider collector market.
This model featuring the iconic HRT livery from 1996 uses our current Holden VF Commodore V8 Supercar tooling which features fully opening parts other than the boot and nicely replicated detail. It will be produced in an exclusive limited edition based on pre-orders received and it’s one that shouldn’t be missed.
