Authentic Collectables are extremely excited to announce another Holden to add to our new road car model line up and it's one that has been regularly requested by collectors for years; the 1:18 Scale Holden VN Commodore SS in Atlas Grey.

Holden announced the VN SS over 20 years ago in March 1989 and it was instantly recognised as a bang-for-your-buck V8 brute. Ushering in an entirely new 165kw electronic fuel injected (EFI) version of the much-loved Aussie V8, the SS blew everything else into the weeds for the day.

The EFI system wasn't the only feature the SS boasted. It also included new cylinder heads, new higher performance tyres and brakes, limited slip differential, unique sports cloth trim, four-spoke steering wheel, and integrated fog lights that were built into the new aggressive body kit.

Initially available in only Phoenix Red and Atlas Grey with an eye-catching SS decal and stripe kit, it was a combination that turned heads everywhere, and still does to this very day.

The SS Commodore is one of the truly iconic Australian nameplates and the VN version is now considered one of the unicorn cars that any Holden enthusiast would happily have in their garage.

With that in mind, we're incredibly excited to be working on a scale replica for fans of this car. Replicating the original base level Series 1 version featuring a manual gearbox, it's scheduled to be produced in 1:18 Scale die-cast with fully opening parts and high detail designed directly from genuine 3D scanned data. As with all our releases in 1:18, this model will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Research and development on the new tooling for this model is advanced and we currently expect the first model produced from it to be released in 2022 should everything progress as planned and without unforeseen interruption.
