HOLDEN VFII COMMODORE MOTORSPORT EDITION 2017
LIMITED EDITION OF 420 PIECES - RELEASED JULY 2019
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the stunning 1:18 Scale 2017 Holden VF Commodore II Motorsport Edition in Nitrate Silver.
To celebrate the last year of locally built Commodores, Holden introduced the Motorsport Edition range to the public. They consisted of the ‘Magnum’ - an SS V-based ute, the ‘Director’ - a Calais V-based sedan and the ‘Motorsport Edition’ - an SS V-based sedan. The latter being what we see above.
The Motorsport Edition sedan added the Magnetic Ride Control system (a feature previously only given to HSVs), together with some suspension, brake, and wheel upgrades. The other major area of difference was the exclusive cosmetic package which featured an embroidered dash, a black painted roof, red or black driving light surrounds, red or black mirror scalps, new red-lined alloys, unique badging, unique decal set, individual vehicle numbering, and a special build option code ‘KOM’. Which of course stands for King of the Mountain — a reference to both Peter Brock and the fact Commodore won the Bathurst 1000 24 times.
Similar to our previous 1:18 Heron White version, the Nitrate Motorsport Edition has been produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, featuring a faithfully replicated interior, authentically replicated staggered wheels with road tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round. It will also come with the optioned larger rear wing as a point of difference.
It’s an exceptional model of a car that will one day be considered an absolute classic and one for the history books.
As with all Biante 1:18 scale models, these have been produced in a limited edition and will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
