New Models Now Available.
Several beautiful new items are now available from Autoart. For fans of Italian Exotica the 6.0 litre Lamborghini Diablo GTR is available in both yellow and black versions. Luxury car buffs will be pleased to see the awesome (in detail and size) Maybach 57 in stock in 1:18 scale. The detail and size of this model is amazing from the beautiful two tone paint to the separate and finely detailed 'Double M' bonnet emblem. Japanese performance car enthusiasts will also be pleased to see the Subaru Impreza STI Wagon in stock in silver.
These models are now available in the 'Just Arrived' section.
Website Ordering and E-mails.

Peter “Possum” Bourne Model
Autoart and Biante Model Cars are very honoured to have been asked by the family and the board of the Possum Bourne Foundation to make a model to Commemorate the multitude of achievements by Possum in the world of rallying.
This model, in 1:18th, will be specially packaged and list the many events and results that together made up the history of possibly the greatest rally driver Australia and New Zealand has ever seen.
We are delighted to make a contribution from every model sold, to the Possum Bourne Foundation, so that it may continue on with the vast array of worthwhile causes it has supported, and will continue to support, in Possum’s memory.
No matter if you are a Holden, Ford, F1, Rally or whatever model collector, we believe that no collection of Australian cars and drivers would ever be complete without this model of our most famous rally driver. Item number will be A89995.

All advanced orders for this item are currently being processed and we will begin to ship these models on Monday. The advanced orders have taken all of the website allocation and we do not expect to have any available for general website sales.

This car is supplied with an individually numbered certificate signed by Colin Bond and also a special booklet outlining theHolden Dealer Teams preparation for the great race which is written, and signed, by Australian Motorsport legend, Harry Firth. Both of these features will add together to make this one very special model. Make sure whoever you get your models from gives you BOTH the signed Certificate and the signed Harry Firth booklet.
Don't forget to have your selections in for this weekends round of Finishline. With the ownership distractions that have been hanging over Holden Racing Team now over they will be even more focused or jumping back onto the top step of the podium.
