The HZ series was launched in October 1977 and was the final revision of the Holden HQ series.
The introduction of the Radial Tuned Suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes was a dramatic improvement, which brought remarkable advances in ride, handling and improved safety.
Holden had mastered Australian conditions better than any other on the road before.
The HZ was also the last of the traditional sized Holdens, until the smaller, lighter Commodore replaced it the following year in 1978.
Our new 1:18 SS-V Redline model have been produced in die-cast (with fully opening parts), which should be welcome news for many die-cast model car collectors. Additionally, the models will have numerous features including, faithfully replicated interiors, nicely replicated 19” staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.
To celebrate the last year of locally built Commodores, Holden introduced the Motorsport Edition range to the public. They consisted of the ‘Magnum’ – a SSV based ute, the ‘Director’ – a Calais based sedan, and the ‘Motorsport Edition’ – a SSV based sedan.
The Motorsport Edition sedan featured all the fruit from the standard SSV Redline, but also added the Magnetic Ride Control system (a feature previously only given to HSV’s), together with some suspension, brake, and wheel upgrades. The other major area of difference was the exclusive cosmetic package which featured an embroidered dash, a black painted roof, red or black driving light surrounds, red or black mirror scalps, new red-lined alloys, unique badging, unique decal set, individual vehicle numbering, and a special build option code ‘KOM’. Which of course stands for King of the Mountain — a reference to both Peter Brock and the fact Commodore won the Bathurst 1000 24 times.
Similar to our 1:18 SS-V Redline models, the Motorsport Edition will be produced in die-cast with fully opening parts featuring, faithfully replicated interior, nicely replicated staggered wheels with road going tyres, photo etched parts, beautifully presented detailing and outstanding finishing all round.
As with all Biante 1:18 scale models, these items have been produced in a limited edition and will come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
