About This Product:
The Wheels Car of the Year for 1988 saw the VN Commodore break into new territory for Holden. It brought back the larger size clearly demanded for Australia's favourite car, but also retained excellent performance from the-then-new American sourced Buick 3.8 litre V6. On top of this, it also did it all at a very reasonable price point for the recession bound late 80's and early 90's.
Clearly though, Holden wasn't resting on their laurels after the VN burst onto the scene and made such an impact in 1988. The first iteration of the second-generation Commodore was also the first Commodore model to feature a utility fully integrated into the line-up - The VG ute. Together with the Executive, S, Berlina, Calais, and longer wheelbase Statesman and Caprice VQ's, it provided the general public with a stunning new range to pick from.
March 1989, however, saw the most exciting model announcement of the lot - the incredibly tough SS, a bang-for-your-buck V8 brute that redefined Holden's V8 performance. Ushering in an entirely new 165kw electronic fuel injected (EFI) version of the much-loved Aussie V8, the SS blew everything else into the weeds for the day.
The EFI system wasn't the only feature the SS boasted. It also included new cylinder heads, new higher performance tyres and brakes, limited slip differential, unique sports cloth trim, four-spoke steering wheel, and integrated fog lights that were built into the new aggressive body kit.
Initially available in only Phoenix Red and Atlas Grey with an eye-catching SS decal and stripe kit, it was a combination that turned heads everywhere, and still does to this very day.
Authentic Collectables are extremely excited to announce the VN SS Commodore in iconic Atlas Grey. Without doubt, one of the most requested models that collectors have been waiting very patiently for.
Replicating the original base level Series 1 version featuring a manual gearbox, this model is scheduled to be produced in 1:18 Scale die-cast with fully opening parts and high detail designed directly from genuine 3D scanned data. As with all our releases in 1:18, this model will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Please place your pre-order at your local stockist or register your interest for it online here to be notified exclusively when this model is released.
Numbers will be strictly limited so don't miss this iconic car in high detail, scale replica form.
For Future Release Model Cars:

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.

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.
