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.”

Authentic Collectables are proud to be releasing this amazing limited edition illustrated print featuring the Falcons that Fabian Coulthard / Tony D’Alberto and Scott McLaughlin / Alexandre Prémat will be driving at the 2018 edition of the popular retro round.

Featuring the artwork of Australian designer / illustrator Tristan Groves, the print measures 841mm X 594mm printed on 250gsm matte paper using offset print technology and will be individually numbered and signed by the artist.

The edition number will be based on pre-orders received so don’t miss it, please place your order at your local stockist or here online. This print is expected to start shipping in mid October 2018.

Please Note: Concept artwork used, livery updates will be made prior to release.

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.
