For the first time in Australia, the world of Shell Motorsport comes together in one limited edition car collection – available exclusively at Shell Coles Express sites. Seven Bluetooth-controlled models make up the range.
From September 29, along with a fuel or convenience purchase, customers can buy the model cars, featuring vehicles from across Supercar, Nascar, WRC Rally, Formula 1, DTM Touring, Formula E and IndyCar.
Each model can be remote-controlled via a smartphone, with gamification and engagement through the global Shell Racing App. Released each week until stocks last, the exclusive motorsport models start with the Shell V-Power Racing Mustang Supercar.
“We’re excited that the first car off the grid in the Shell Motorsport Collection is the Ford Mustang,” Shell V Power Racing Team driver Anton De Pasquale said.
This will be followed by the Scuderia Ferrari F1, IndyCar, Hyundai Rally, Formula E Nissan, Nascar Team Penske and BMW Racing DTM cars.
“We hope this range of collectables will fuel Australians’ passion for motorsport, particularly as we approach Bathurst 1000 in October,” executive general manager of Viva Australia (the new owners of Coles Express service stations) Megan Foster said.
“With this innovative collection, it’s easier than ever for racing fans of any age to recreate the power, thrill and heart-stopping atmosphere of motorsports at home.”
Customers who spend $20 or more on fuel or convenience can purchase a car for $10. The vehicles are also available to buy outright for $15 each. The rechargeable and interchangeable battery is sold separately for $8.
For the full chequered flag experience, an exclusive display case is also available for purchase. The Shell Racing App enriches the experience of the collectibles and can also be played without the cars.
The exclusive Shell Motorsport collectible cars are available from September 29 – November 30, 2022. Once released, each model will remain available for the duration of the promotion or while stocks last.
