About This Product:
Authentic Collectables are very proud to present the 1:18 Scale Ford Performance Mustang GT 'Camostang' test driven by Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard at Queensland Raceway in 2018.
Everyone in Australian motorsport had eyes on Ipswich in November of 2018 as homologation team DJR Team Penske in partnership with Ford Performance and Tickford Racing wheeled out the newly developed Ford Mustang GT Supercar which was set to appear on track the following year to contest the 2019 Supercars Championship.
Featuring a distinct camouflage livery that was specifically designed to confuse prying eyes and hide some of the Mustang's distinct (but very legal) aero advantages and carrying the iconic orange #17, it was a memorable first outing for the car.
Both DJR Team Penske's Shell V-Power Racing Team driver's Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard took turns behind the wheel over the course of the day, cutting multiple laps and testing various different set ups.
“First of all, the car looks awesome. It’s going to be so good to see it in Shell V-Power colours next year,” said McLaughlin. It’s a great start. It did everything we could expect of a brand-new race car, and the balance feels pretty close to our current package. Having now driven it, I’m massively excited for the 2019 season to begin.”
At the conclusion of the test, DJRTP reported the Mustang ran faultlessly and managing director Ryan Story said he could not have been happier with how the day unfolded.
“To see Mustang on track for the first time is a great milestone, as we’ve been working on this project in earnest since November last year. It is a testament to everyone involved,” Story said. “It’s an encouraging start. The car looks fantastic, and both drivers reported that the car has plenty of promise. We couldn’t be more pleased with how things progressed today.”
Further testing was carried out at Phillip Island with the Mustang package later finalised and subsequently approved by Supercars to race in 2019.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Despite designing a better car and having it approved by Supercars, the new Ford Mustang was subject to various modifications in the ongoing 'parity' saga of 2019. Ultimately though, in the hands of talented driver's, it didn't matter and has been dominant since its debut, breaking records, winning back to back Manufacturers Championship's for Ford, Drivers Championship's for Scott McLaughlin, Teams Championship's for DJR Team Penske / Shell V-Power Racing Team and a Bathurst 1000 crown to cap off the cars remarkable success to date.
Don't miss this 1:18 scale model which has been produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior and fully opening parts in a limited edition of 1002 with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
For Future Release Model Cars:

If you're interested in ordering/buying these models then you have two options available to you:
Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:
If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.
Please note, all stockists are seperate businesses to Authentic Collectables, we are suppliers to them. Each stockist has different ways of how they accept pre-orders for future release models.

Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:
You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.
To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.
Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.
When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.
Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.
We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.
For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.
If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.
Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.
A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.
We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.
Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.

If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.
