No other fuel brand loves die cast supercars quite like Petron Corporation. These guys release a new collection almost every year and their latest set includes monsters from German, Italian, and British marques.
The so-called ‘Petron Supercar Series’ includes a red Audi R8 LMS, blue Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, and a white Bentley Continental GT3. All are highly-detailed 1:24 scale models that light up and make *vroom vroom* engine noises like the real deal. We also wouldn’t be too surprised if it came with pull-back action for those who want theirs to zoom around the living room. But a 5-side display case is also included in case you want to keep them in pristine condition.
While the Aventador isn’t exactly new to Petron’s collection (a smaller 1:32 scale version came out last year), we’re happy to see the Philippine petroleum giant share their love not just for supercars, but also for race cars. Motorsports isn’t exactly the most popular sport in the country and every little bit of awareness helps. Hopefully though, Petron returns to auto racing as a sponsor in the near future.
To get your hands on one (or the entire set), each ‘toy’ is available for only P700 at participating Petron stations nationwide. That’s when you fill up with P500 worth of Petron Blaze 100, Petron XCS, Petron Xtra Advance, Petron Turbo Diesel, or Petron Diesel Max. Oil purchases such as Petron Ultron, Petron Rev-X, and Petron Sprint 4T are also eligible.
Do keep in mind that Petron’s Supercar Series collection is only available from September 15 to October 15, 2016.
