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 1:18 scale which is scheduled to be produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors.
This model will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Please place your pre-order at your local stockist or reserve it online here to ensure you don’t miss out.

Reserve Model Cars Online With Us:
Alternatively, you can also reserve future model car releases online with us. Please click on the black 'Reserve This Product' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen and enter your email address. You will then receive an email from us when the product arrives and it will be reserved for 48 hours for you to purchase on a 'first in, best dressed' basis while stock is available.
We offer this free reservation option due to the amount of time models (usually 6-12 months) generally take to produce so you don’t have to pay us until the model arrives.
Books, Prints + Other Product Releases:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we do offer a paid pre-order option on our website and details about this 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.
