New Model Announcements: 1:18 Scale Fresshmint Street Custom VE + More Road Cars


We're really excited to present to collectors five new 1:18 scale road car models which are now available to pre-order at stockists or you can register your interest for them on our website.

We enjoy creating new and different model releases for collectors here at Authentic Collectables and the hero model featured in this latest range of new model announcements is just that.

It's the Holden VE Commodore SS V Street Custom, which we've named Fresshmint and this limited edition model will be the first release in our new street custom range.


Based on our die-cast VE SS V with opening parts, this model features a variety of modifications which include an incredible Hullabaloo paint job with matching engine bay and interior accents, 24-inch 5 spoke wheels with liquorice strap tyres, tinted windows, black roof including a rear roof visor, ducktail spoiler, custom side SS stripes, Fresshmint number plates and more.

It's a 'dip of the lid' for car heads out there with a love of adding their own flair to their dream machines.

While we're on the topic of upcoming VE model releases, we're also announcing a new standard road car edition this month, in Heron White, to add to our growing range of VE SS V models.

The Heron White edition with black interior has been an often requested colour since we released our first VE model, it will be another fantastic release for Holden collectors.

If you're a Ford fan then don't despair, we have two new road car releases to announce for you this month. They are the Ford Ranger Raptor in True Red and a really incredible looking Ford Mustang GT Fastback in Carbonized Grey which features the optional forged 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, black ‘over the top’ stripe kit, and Recaro sport seats.

The Mustang is a really neat looking muscle car and the red Raptor simply looks awesome.
