Available: Future Release
Featuring fully-opening diecast tooling, with detailed engine bays, undercarriage and interiors, these models have been a labour of love for over a year here at Biante and we’re excited to finally reveal them.
Similar to the 1:12 scale versions revealed last year, the 1:18s have been developed directly from the genuine HSV CAD data and are as accurate in shape as possible in model form. Further to this, we’ve also added all the extra details required for a fully-opening model. The engine bays have been faithfully and extensively replicated. The incredible LS9 in the W1 has extra wiring and hose detail, while the GTSR features the iconic red engine cover now so synonymous with the LSA engine.
That’s not all though. The interiors have also been an area of focus. The W1 and GTSR logos are proudly displayed on each respective model with perhaps the most impressive being the sill plates. This was an area previously left hidden on the 1:12 versions, but now with the doors opening, they become an impressive feature.
On top of all these new details, we of course haven’t forgotten the other differences that distinguish the W1 from the GTSR, such as the Pirelli P-Zero tyres, carbon fibre detailing and W1 badging. We’ve even gone so far that if you turn the W1 model over you will see the dry sump of the fire-breathing LS9 engine!
Produced in high quality, fully-opening diecast, the 1:18 GTSR and GTSR W1 are exquisitely-crafted collectables. They will be produced to order and as with all Biante 1:18 scale limited edition models, these items will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
