About This Product:
The Sandown 500 Retro Round is fast becoming a fan favourite event on the Supercars calendar with teams up and down pit lane celebrating the history of the sport with retro inspired liveries, team uniforms and more.
Team BOC’s 2016 retro inspired livery paid a nice tribute to the history of Brad Jones Racing with 2016 marking the 25th Anniversary of Brad Jones winning the 1991 AUSCAR Championship in the #8 VN Commodore - which was one of his whopping 5 AUSCAR championship titles, before moving onto NASCAR. Despite being a simple livery design, the 2016 version stays true to the original AUSCAR VN it was featured on with the large number 8 a key, striking feature - and numbers on the doors are always an awesome feature if you ask us!
Other than the wide selection of interesting retro liveries, the 2016 running of the Sandown 500 will perhaps be remembered most for the huge crash suffered by GRM’s James Golding on the opening lap which resulted in a safety car and eventually a red flag in order to make repairs to the tyre barrier such was the huge impact of the incident. Unfortunately for Team BOC, their day didn’t fare much better with wet weather affecting their strategy calls and a tyre puncture all combining to see them finish in 22nd place. Despite the disappointing finish, their 2016 retro livery was certainly one of the more bolder and interesting takes seen on the track that year.
Don’t miss this impressive model 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.

Alternatively, you can also reserve future model car releases online with us.

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.
