The Holden Racing Team without doubt holds a special place in the heart of many red-blooded Australian motorsport fans.
From 1989 to 2016, HRT raced a variety of famous Commodores across Australia and on occasion, internationally. With the iconic Holden lion and helmet motif ever evolving and sprawling down the sides of their cars, they were the all conquering, unmistakable Holden factory team for a long time and boast a storied history.
Part of that history includes the time the team, along with the entire V8 Supercars category, visited the United States of America to hold their first (and only) championship round in the country at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas for the Austin 400.
To celebrate the milestone round in the USA, HRT updated their #2 and #22 VF Commodores driven by Garth Tander and James Courtney to feature an 'Aussie-Made' livery which incorporated the Australian flag on both the roof and rear quarter panels of both cars which combined perfectly with their striking season livery.
The team was there to 'fly the flag' for Australia and show America the power of the then new VF Commodore which would soon be exported to the USA. Holden's VF Commodore in fact dominated the Austin 400, winning all four races across the round.
The HRT cars weren't on the winners sheet that weekend, however, this livery certainly looked like a winner and we're excited to finally be replicating these cars in scale model form.
Both the #2 and #22 models have been produced in high quality sealed body die-cast with clear windows, detailed interiors and will be presented in a clear acrylic display case featuring presentation finishing in an exclusive limited edition of 234 with an individually numbered graphic base.
Our 1:43 Twinsets are really special collectors items and look incredible and this one will be no exception. It's a must have for fans of Holden, this iconic team and 1:43 scale collectors.
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.
For any other questions relating to Shipping, please visit our Quick Help / FAQ's section here.
Product images used on our website may be of a real car photo, model car photo, mock-up, render, illustration, prototype or production sample and are used for display purposes only.
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.
