Authentic Collectables are pleased to present the 1:18 Scale Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford FGX Falcon driven by Scott McLaughlin and Alexandre Prémat at the 2017 Wilson Security Sandown 500 Retro Round.
The #17 Shell Falcon had a retro twist added to its season livery for the running of the 2017 Sandown 500 Retro Round to celebrate a then 50-year partnership for Shell and team founder Dick Johnson.
The modern style Shell Pecten on the bonnet, doors and roof was replaced with a vintage style version of the famous logo along with special messaging on the rear of the car to commemorate the longest corporate partnership in Australian Motorsport after Shell first backed Johnson’s EH Holden in 1967.
It was a subtle retro addition to the car that fit perfectly with the season livery styling and proved to be a nice point of difference for the year. Not only did the real thing look great but it was fast too as it had been for much of the year, with the duo finishing on the podium in 2nd place to carry on what was a phenomenal first year with DJR Team Penske for McLaughlin.
With this model often being requested to be produced from fans, don’t miss the awesome retro themed #17 Falcon which is scheduled to be produced in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
