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.
It's fair to say that the Gen3 platform really suited Erebus Motorsport and Will Brown straight out of the blocks. Now with major backing from Coca-Cola, Brown's #9 Camaro not only looks awesome, but has been fast all year, claiming multiple poles, race wins and podiums to sit around the top of the championship standings for the majority of the season.
Come the Bathurst 1000, Brown, joined by co-driver Jack Perkins, looked to be on the pace with their teammates in the #99 car throughout the early stages of the weekend. Come qualifying however, Brown made an error - a self confessed "balls-up" - when he locked a front and sent his car flying into the turn 2 tyre barrier. A massive effort from the team got Brown back on tack to qualify 17th.
The accident and poor qualifying result ultimately put the #9 Camaro on the back foot come race day. Brown and Perkins battled admirably across the 161 laps to finish in the top 10 in 8th, illustrating the strength of the Erebus Camaro. It was a case of what might have been for #9 at Bathurst, but despite the result, we wanted to produce this model to complete the 2023 Bathurst 1000 pair with the #99 car for Erebus Motorsport collectors.
This 1:18 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality diecast 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 5.7-litre Chevrolet Racing LTR V8 and engine bay surround. Underneath the model, the undercarriage details the unique Gen3 floorpan.
Comprised of roughly 205 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.
