New Model Tooling Announcement: The Billion Dollar Baby - 1:18 Scale Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series

Authentic Collectables are very proud to announce our first road car die-cast model that we are developing for Australian collectors in 1:18 scale, the Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series.

Dubbed the ‘Billion Dollar Baby’ when it was first launched in 2006, the Holden VE Commodore was an executive car that arguably represented Holden in Australia at the absolute peak of its powers and we’re excited to now be bringing you this iconic Commodore in scale model form.

This 1:18 scale model range will be produced in die-cast with fully opening parts and high detail with immaculate finishing throughout and like all our model releases in this scale, each version will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Development on the new tooling for this model is reasonably advanced and we currently expect the first models produced from it to be released in the first half of next year (2022) should everything progress as planned and without unforeseen interruption.

We’re initially announcing two colour variations of the 1:18 scale SS V that we intend to release first, the striking orange ‘hero’ launch car in Ignition Metallic and every car looks good in black so Phantom Metallic will be the 2nd colour option produced in this new range.

More colours will be announced and produced in due course.
