About This Product:
A new era began in 2023 when Gen3 Supercars were introduced to race in the Supercars Championship.
A significant evolution from the previous Gen2 platform, the Gen3 rules implemented a raft of changes for the Ford Mustang GT Supercar in 2023, with a large focus on achieving a much closer visual connection to its road going counterpart, more controlled parts and less downforce to encourage greater racing.
It's fair to say that the Gen3 platform really suited Erebus Motorsport and Brodie Kostecki straight out of the blocks. Now with major backing from Coca-Cola, Kostecki's #99 Camaro not only looks awesome, but has been fast all year, claiming multiple poles, race wins and podiums to sit around the top of the championship standings for the majority of the season.
Come the Bathurst 1000, Kostecki, joined by co-driver David Russell, continued the trend with the Coke Camaro looking ridiculously quick in the lead up to qualifying. After easily making the top-ten shootout, Kostecki blitzed the field with his one lap flyer by half a second - clocking a time of 2:04.2719s to see him claim his first Bathurst 1000 Pole Position honour.
On race day Kostecki and Russell both drove exceptionally well and led the race for 38 laps but ultimately couldn't match the strength of the #97 Triple Eight Camaro to finish one place off the top step of the podium in second place. It was the second time the duo had finished on the podium with Erebus after a third place finish in 2021.
This 1:18 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality die-cast with opening parts which includes the bonnet and both the driver and passenger doors.
A highly detailed racing cockpit can be seen through the molded clear glasshouse, or by opening the doors to examine the interior further. Under the bonnet includes a detailed 5.7-litre Chevrolet Racing LTR V8 and engine bay surround. Underneath the model, the undercarriage details the unique Gen3 floorpan.
Comprised of roughly 205 individual metal and plastic parts, with anywhere between 100-200 steps in paint and decoration finishing, including tampo printing where possible, photo etched parts including the bonnet pints, brake rotors and more, this is a high quality, detailed collectors model.
It is scheduled to be produced in an exclusive, one-off limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity presented in its own, Authentic Collectables branded protective cardboard folder.
Once this model is sold out, it won't be available again.
