(More) V8s Galore!
Biante has been busy punching out more 1:43 scale V8 Supercars over the past 6 months or so. This has been a combination of catching up on production that was delayed a few years back (including the AMG Mercs!) and releases from the current 2016 season.
Production numbers are in the 300 to 500 range for the Biantes (750 for Courtney HRT) , while there are just 204 pieces of each of the Apex DJR Penske Falcons.
