About This Product:
Authentic Collectables are proud to present this stunning Holden VF Commodore featuring a very special Holden 600 Race Wins Celebration Livery by renowned motorsport designer Peter Hughes.
Since Holden won their first Australian Touring Car Championship race in 1969 at the hands of Norm Beechey aboard a Holden HK Monaro GTS 327, 599 more championship race wins have followed, with the 600th win claimed by Shane van Gisbergen at Wanneroo Raceway during the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship.
To commemorate this historic milestone, Authentic Collectables reached out to Peter Hughes to help us design a celebration livery to produce as a limited edition collectors model. Hughes, a GM Automotive Designer for many years and the man behind too many famous Holden liveries to mention, was the perfect person to design this model with us.
"When asked to create a celebratory livery for Holdens 600th championship win, my immediate thoughts were channelled to all the famous cues used on decades of winning factory Holdens," Hughes said.
"The iconic black rear/white front draws inspiration from early Holden Racing Team years and splitting those elements is the flowing red Racing Lion in all its historic glory."
"This is complemented by the VF type cropped lion on the hood giving the design even more of a factory feel. Red details tie everything together, finishing off a simple yet very dynamic livery, symbolising power, performance and success. I wish this car had raced, it just screams Holden Motorsport from any angle."
The stunning Holden livery also features numerous small details which have been incorporated into the design. The 600 race wins on the doors and windows are obvious, while the roof also features a bold 600 wins graphic which incorporates the 3 main model nameplates to have won - Monaro, Torana and Commodore along with the 1969-2022 dates signifying the years of the first and 600th win. Another interesting detail is the last names of the top 10 drivers with the most Holden race wins listed on top of the boot lid. A final touch that also had to be included is the Australian flags on the rear quarter windows!
As many keen Holden followers would know, the 600th win came aboard a ZB Commodore, but to celebrate the achievement of winning 600 championship races overall, we opted to use the VF Commodore due to it being the most successful race winning Holden model, taking out 108 of those 600 wins while also being the last widely recognised 'Australian' Commodore.
Don’t miss this model which has been produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors in a limited edition of 1500 pieces with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, signed by Peter Hughes.
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.
To find your local Authentic Collectables stockist, please click here.
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.
