Shell V-Power Racing Team #12 Ford FGX Falcon Supercar 2017 Sandown 500 Retro Round Fabian Coulthard / Tony D’Alberto
Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford FGX Falcon driven by Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto at the 2017 Wilson Security Sandown 500 Retro Round.
Like its #17 counterpart, the #12 Shell Falcon had a retro twist added to its season livery for the running of the 2017 Sandown 500 Retro Round to celebrate a then 50-year partnership for Shell and team founder Dick Johnson.
The modern style Shell Pecten on the bonnet, doors and roof was replaced with a vintage style version of the famous logo along with special messaging on the rear of the car to commemorate the longest corporate partnership in Australian Motorsport after Shell first backed Johnson’s EH Holden in 1967.
It was a subtle retro addition to the car that fit perfectly with the season livery styling and proved to be a nice point of difference for the year.
This model will be produced in a limited edition with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
