About This Product:



This official book captures the amazing history of Larry Perkins’ famous team via the histories of its individual race cars.

The book follows on from the sold-out release by the same production house in 2017 documenting the history of every Holden Racing Team race car and the follow up sell-out in 2020 covering the history of all of Dick Johnson Racing’s cars.

Perkins Engineering built more than 50 Commodore race cars for both its own racing program and privateer customers as well as more than 200 engines for touring cars, AUSCAR, Formula Holden, road car and boat use.

All of these Perkins-built cars will be covered in full including never-before-published insights and photographs to feature and Perkins Engineering’s official records used to help compile the ultimate history book.

The exciting new release will start with Perkins’ first ENZED Commodore Group A VK built in 1986, include the histories of the three Bathurst-winning Castrol Commodores that conquered the Mountain in the 1990s and end with the last Jack Daniel’s Commodore VE.

It features Commodore models including VK, VL Group A SS, VL Group A SV, VN, VP, VR, VS, VT, VX, VY, VZ and VE and includes all of the iconic Perkins Castrol and Jack Daniel’s race cars as well as the wide range of privateer cars built by Perkins Engineering.

Each car’s racing history is presented in a stunning layout along with a special focus placed on each car’s performances in ‘The Great Race’ at Bathurst.

This hardcover book will be produced in an exclusive limited-edition print run and each copy will come individually numbered and hand-signed by Larry Perkins, making it not only an official historic resource but a truly special collectable item.

Australian-made and printed in Australia via green printing methods, this book is a must-have for the collection of any Larry Perkins, Perkins Engineering, Holden, Bathurst, motorsport, motoring or automotive enthusiast.

Currently scheduled to arrive in October/November 2021, this book can’t be missed.

Model Car Releases:

Pre-Order Future Release 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.

Register Your Interest For Future Release Model Cars Online With Us:

Alternatively, you can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us. 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 and follow the prompts. 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.

We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you don’t have to pay us until the model arrives.

Pre-Ordering 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.
