Supercars’ Gen3 prototypes officially for sale

SUPERCARS is officially selling its Gen3 prototypes, both of which have been restored to their original liveries.

The Camaro and Mustang were built by Triple Eight and Dick Johnson Racing, respectively in 2021 and were subsequently put through an extensive testing program.

Now that aero parity has been agreed upon following wind tunnel testing in the United States, Supercars is comfortable to relinquish the prototypes.

“These prototypes offer a rare chance to acquire vehicles that symbolise the evolution of Supercars racing,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“Used extensively for testing during the transition to the Gen3 era, they hold immense value as artifacts of our transformative period.

“With their distinctive sound and striking resemblance to their road-going counterparts, they provide a visceral connection to the sport’s roots.

“We’ve received a large degree of interest received over the last three years about what the future has in store for these prototypes and look forward to handing them to new owners in the near future.”

Twelve months ago, it was claimed Supercars was seeking $1 million each for the prototypes.

The cars are now being sold via Shaun Baker of Young Timer’s Garage. No price tag has been made public.

“This is a never to be repeated opportunity to acquire two highly significant and bespoke race cars which have shaped the future of Australia’s pinnacle of motorsport,” said Baker.

“YTG is proud to be able to bring this incredibly unique opportunity to market for the very first time.”
