About This Product:
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.
Development on the new Commodore began in 1999 and over the course of 7 years of design, engineering and testing, over 1 billion Australian Dollars was spent to make it the largest and most expensive Holden ever developed.
Couple that expenditure with the 3.4 million kilometres of testing carried out on the project, the new VE was an Australian designed and developed model that would not only replace the popular outgoing VZ Commodore series for the brand, but go on to win much acclaim world wide and sell over half a million units in its various forms both domestically and internationally during a lifespan ranging from 2006 to 2013.
The VE was not only a winner on the road but on the track too. The foundations of the VE helped Holden motorsport claim 103 V8 Supercar race wins, including multiple Bathurst 1000 victories and series championships to have the model sitting in 2nd place on the all time winning model list behind its eventual VF Commodore replacement.
This is a car that was not only beautifully designed, but commands a tremendous amount of respect and will in time, likely be viewed as an iconic piece of Australian motoring history, especially now the Holden brand has sadly been retired.
Authentic Collectables are very proud to present the high end sports variant of the VE Commodore, the SS V-Series in Ignition Metallic in model form for the first time which has been produced in 1:18 scale die-cast with fully opening parts and high detail. It comes in an exclusive limited edition of 1200 with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
For Future Release Model Cars:
We have A LOT of future release model cars listed on this website and it's not uncommon for these items to take anywhere between 6-18 months to arrive.
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.
For All In Stock Products:
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.
Yes we ship internationally.
Shipping rates are calculated during the checkout process based on what you're ordering and where you're shipping it to. Add the items you want to your cart, and go through the checkout process to view the rates. You can see the shipping rates prior to final payment for the order.

Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
