About This Product: As a team with one of the richest histories in Australian motorsport, Shell V-Power Racing Team / DJR Team Penske will be celebrating a milestone moment from the past with their liveries at the 2018 Sandown 500 Retro Round.
Their #12 and #17 2018 Ford FGX Falcons will race featuring a special one-off retro themed livery based on Dick Johnson’s Shell Ultra-Hi Racing Ford Sierra RS500 which he drove to win the 1988 Australian Touring Car Championship - with 2018 marking the 30th Anniversary of the achievement.
The 1988 season was a particularly dominant one for Dick Johnson Racing, with Johnson and his then teammate John Bowe taking victory in eight of the nine rounds. It was Johnson’s fourth Australian Touring Car title, with Bowe finishing second in the points for a Shell 1-2.
Johnson, now co-owner of the front-running Virgin Australia Supercars outfit Shell V-Power Racing Team, has fond memories of that era.
“Those Sierras were the best Touring Cars on the planet, and we were completely and totally on top of our game,” said Johnson.
“Seeing that classic livery on these cars is very special and brings back many great memories. It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years, but amazing to relive those fantastic times and see that livery back on track.”
Don’t miss this awesome retro themed #17 Falcon driven by Scott McLaughlin and Alexandre Prémat in 1:43 scale which is scheduled to be produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality sealed body die-cast with clear windows, detailed interior and will be presented in a clear display case.
This model will be produced in a limited edition.
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.
