THE latest episode of the Motorfocus Model Podcast will make for interesting listening if you have one of the cars listed below in your collection!

Models of cars that have won the Bathurst 1000 or the Australian Touring Car/Supercars Championship generally appreciate in value, but what about cars that haven’t ticked either of those boxes?

In the Secondhand Market segment, Aaron Noonan and Dimitri Comino from Motorfocus ran through a list of 1:18 scale releases that, for various reasons, have gained significant value over their original retail price.

The releases they talk about, in no particular order, are:

  • 2015 Cameron Waters/Russell Ingall ‘Back to the Future’ Prodrive Racing Australia Ford Falcon FG X (Apex Replicas)
  • 2008 Craig Lowndes ‘Red Dust’ Triple Eight Ford Falcon BF (Classic Carlectables)
  • 2002 Marcos Ambrose ‘Pirtek’ Stone Brothers Racing Ford Falcon AU (Classic Carlectables)
  • 2006 Mark Winterbottom ‘GT’ Ford Performance Racing Ford Falcon BA (Classic Carlectables)
