Kmart Racing duo Greg Murphy and Rick Kelly will have some 'super hero help' in their attempts to retain the Bathurst 1000 title, after unveiling the new look VY Commodore they will use this weekend.

Featuring a striking 'Spider-Man 2' livery on its flanks to promote Kmart's 'Amazing Toy Sale' which starts on next week, the new livery is sure to be a winner with the kids, especially given that Spider-Man 2 toys will on the letters to Santa before Christmas.

"The car looks absolutely brilliant," Murphy said. "I'll be more than happy if our rivals end up tangled in the web we leave behind and we can drive on to another Bathurst crown!"

The Spider-Man 2/Kmart Toy Sale livery is an initiative of Kmart Racing to boost the involvement of its sponsor in its racing activities, but also help introduce to V8 Supercar racing to something that's commonplace in American NASCAR racing - livery changes to coincide with major events and launches.

The team's second car, the #51 Kmart Commodore of Steve Owen and Tim Leahey, will also carry the Spider-Man 2 livery for the Bathurst event.
