Pre-order your 2017 Erebus Bathurst-winning Commodore VF via V8 Sleuth’s Online Store now!


THE V8 Sleuth Online Store is expanding its range heading into the 2018 motorsport season, today confirming that we will now be an official stockist of Authentic Collectables.

Authentic Collectables are a new player in the Australian collectable model car and products market and they have a number of announced and planned future releases that will be of interest to V8 Sleuth followers.

Authentic Collectables are the exclusive model car manufacturer of Erebus Penrite Racing and their first announcements for this team are the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000-winning #9 Commodore VF driven by David Reynolds and Luke Youlden as well as their Team Brock-inspired Commodore from the ‘retro round’ Sandown 500.

These models are being produced in a number of scales using brand new tooling, with the 1:18 scale versions to be made in die-cast with opening parts – a key point for collectors.

They are now available to pre-order here via the V8 Sleuth Online Store with delivery currently expected to be around mid-2018.

In addition to the model cars, Authentic Collectables have also produced two limited edition prints celebrating the #17 Shell V-Power Racing Ford Falcon FG X driven by Scott McLaughlin in record time to claim pole position at Bathurst earlier this year.

The artwork may look familiar as it was produced by a friend of the V8 Sleuth family who has produced a number of great prints for us, Perth artist Tristan Groves.

There are two editions of this amazing print now in stock, the standard edition featuring a white background limited to 350 (RRP: $59.95) and the variant edition featuring a yellow background limited to only 100 (RRP: $89.95).

Order them here now.

Each print is officially licensed by Shell V-Power Racing Team, measures 59 X 84cm printed on Matt 250GSM paper and is individually numbered and signed by the artist.

Stay tuned for more pre-order announcements and product releases from Authentic Collectables via the V8 Sleuth Online Store soon.
