About This Product:

At the 2023 Adelaide 500, Dick Johnson Racing became the first team to reach 500 Championship Rounds in ATCC / Supercars history.

A racer at heart, DJR started from humble beginnings in the wake of the now infamous rock incident at Bathurst in 1980 which is now part of Australian motorsport folklore.

With a newly built Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD, Dick Johnson rolled up to the first round of the 1981 Australian Touring Car Championship at Symmons Plains in what would be DJR’s first official appearance as a team. He won that round and then a few more, including the season ending Lakeside round to seal the championship against his great rival Peter Brock - a pretty handy debut season for the team which also included a Bathurst 1000 win.

Fast forward over 40 years and the iconic Ford team has grown from a backyard operation into one of the oldest and most revered professional motorsport teams in the country with 10 drivers titles, 3 teams championships, 4 Bathurst 1000 wins, 148 race wins, 314 podiums and 154 pole positions.

Both Dick Johnson and his team are legends in motorsport.

To celebrate the 500 rounds milestone, designer Tristan Groves has created this very special model for fans of Dick Johnson Racing which combines characteristics reminiscent of the iconic 1981 Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD applied to the 2023 Gen3 Mustang GT Supercar which the team races currently.

It's an awesome combination of both old and new.

This 1:18 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality die-cast 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 5.4-litre Coyote quad overhead cam V8 and engine bay surround. Underneath the model, the undercarriage details the unique Gen3 floorpan.

Comprised of roughly 204 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 signed by Dick Johnson AM, presented in its own, Authentic Collectables branded protective cardboard folder.

Once this model is sold out, it won't be available again.
