About This Product:
The FGX Falcon was Ford’s weapon of choice competing in the Supercars Championship between 2015-2018 for four seasons and powerhouse teams such as PRA/Tickford Racing and DJR Team Penske enjoyed significant milestones with the model.
Competing largely against the extremely strong Holden VF and ZB Commodore packages, the FGX was a true battler and will forever be remembered as not only the last Falcon ever raced in Australia, but also the final Falcon championship winner.
Across its racing lifetime, the FGX won 45 races, 61 poles and 124 podiums in addition to 2 championship titles and 2 Sandown 500 wins. While a coveted win at the Bathurst 1000 was never achieved by the model, it still claimed 3 podium finishes and perhaps one of the greatest laps ever seen at the mountain with Scott McLaughlin’s 2017 pole position flyer.
McLaughlin and Mark Winterbottom were the two gun drivers during the FGX era, winning a championship each racing the model while stars including Chaz Mostert, Fabian Coulthard, David Reynolds and Cam Waters also enjoyed success.
The FGX Falcon will forever be a celebrated race car in the history of Australian motorsport and Authentic Collectables are proud to present this special collectable scale model. The DNA of FGX Celebration Livery celebrates the racing achievements for the FGX in the premier category of Australian motorsport, featuring a livery on this edition by respected motorsport livery designer Tim Pattinson.
“When I was asked by the team at Authentic Collectables to design a livery celebrating the achievements of the FGX, I had plenty of potential ideas come to mind and couldn't wait to get started. There's been some great core elements to build on from the Falcon racing history” said Pattinson.
“The Falcon is such an iconic part of Australian motorsport and with the FGX being the last of its kind, I wanted to design something that was unmistakably Ford. The blue colour scheme, the Falcon graphic and Falcon FGX elements all work together to make a stand out livery and hopefully, a great model for collectors”.
Tim has created a vast portfolio of fantastic race liveries over the years and he has nailed this design. The model will be an incredible addition for Ford fans and collectors.
This 1:18 scale model has been produced in high quality die-cast with detailed interior and opening parts in a limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the livery designer, Tim Pattinson.
