Biante Model Cars are thrilled to announce the 1:43 Project Sandman Tribute Edition built by Red Bull Racing Australia.
Project Sandman was the ultimate tribute to a Holden that held a special place in the hearts and minds of Australia’s car-loving population.
2014 marked the 40th anniversary of the 1974 release of Holden’s Sandman. To mark the occasion, Triple Eight Race Engineering created the Project Sandman Tribute Edition.
The project had started in April 2014, Triple Eight working in conjunction with the GM Holden Design Department. On the outside it looked every bit the panel van it paid homage to – right down to a pair of carbon fibre surfboards on the roof!
But beneath the bodywork lurked a real, pure-bred racing machine. Underpinning the Sandman exterior was one of Triple Eight’s former race cars; in fact, it was the chassis of the very Holden Commodore VF that Jamie Whincup had raced to eight victories during the 2013 championship season!
As with all Biante scale models, these items will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity with the 1:43 presented in a display case.
Please Note: All product images used may be of a prototype, a real image of the product to be replicated or an illustrative example and may differ from the final deliverable product.
