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.
Thomas Randle has been touted as a star of the future since winning the 2020 Super2 Championship. Now in his 2nd season as a full time ‘main game’ driver with Tickford Racing, Randle can now add a Supercars pole position to his growing list of achievements where he topped the qualifying time sheets for Race 21 at The Bend with a lap time of 1:50.068 to edge Brodie Kostecki by +0.052s - no mean feat given Kostecki’s championship caliber form across 2023.Come race time, Randle couldn't quite turn his maiden Supercars pole into his first win, ultimately racing his bold #55 Castrol backed Mustang to finish on the podium in P2. In fact, Randle scored a hat-trick of podiums across the weekend's three races, his first podiums as a solo driver in Supercars. Not a bad weekend for Tickford and Randle fans.
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 5.4-litre Coyote quad overhead cam V8 and engine bay surround. Underneath the model, the undercarriage details the unique Gen3 floorpan.
Comprised of roughly 204 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.
