In 2018 Steve and Dick Johnson launched plans to undertake a mammoth project to build a XD Falcon to compete in the popular Touring Car Masters series.

In 1980, the Tru-Blu XD Falcon that Dick and John French drove at Bathurst famously hit a Rock on lap 17 while leading the Great Race, making Johnson a household name. The car is synonymous with the success of Dick Johnson Racing and the TCM XD will fittingly make its debut in 2020, the 40th anniversary of DJR.

The spiritual home of the XD and DJR is Lakeside International Raceway, where the original ex-Police XD made its debut on 20 July 1980.

There could be no more fitting public unveiling for the new Team Johnson weapon than at Lakeside on 10 February 2020.

As well as a ride with Dick Johnson in the XD TCM car, you will also receive:
  • Commemorative Cap
  • Commemorative Stubbie cooler
  • 2 bottles of De Bortoli Fine Wine
  • 1981 Ford XD Falcon Tru Blu 2018 50c Cu-Ni Uncirculated Coin
  • Exclusive signed poster
  • Emailed photo of your ride
  • Video of your lap supplied to you on USB

On purchasing the ride, you will receive a gift certificate, the balance of the Merchandise pack will be delivered on the day of the ride.

Model Car Releases:

Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Stockist:

If a model car is marked as a future release then please place a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible. To find your local Authentic Collectables stockists, please use the link in the main menu.

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.

Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.

In Stock Items:

If a product is marked as 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.
