A look inside this month's Unique Cars gearbox...

1. HDT VK SS Commodore model

Put this website in your diary or race down to your local model shop if you’re an iron lion or HDT fan.

Available soon, Biante has created the VK HDT SS Commodore. Finished in Alpine White the 1:18 scale model’s detail is outstanding.

When Holden dumped the SS moniker for the VK, Brock snaffled it for his own HDT creation with the signature 15 x 7-inch Aero rims, unique SS logos and striping together with the sporty Scheel seats, which are recreated in this stunning $250 model.

2. Chasing Perfect book

Chasing Perfect is the untold story of Frank Stephenson, the auto designer who revolutionised the new Mini and led design teams on some of Ferrari’s and McLaren’s most iconic cars. The film focuses on Frank’s journey, his unrelenting enthusiasm and extreme, obsessive dedication to succeed. His perfectionist father said "Find something you can be the best at." So he dived into the world of automotive design. We are so glad he did.

Available for $30.99 through zavvi.com.au
