Police investigating the murder of Gold Coast bikie Shane Bowden have released CCTV footage of two getaway cars they believe were used in the killing.
Bowden was gunned down in the driveway of his girlfriend’s Pimpama home on October 12 last year.
The 48-year-old was returning home from the gym when his attackers pounced, firing up to 21 gunshots through his vehicle around 12.20am.

Footage of a maroon coloured Ford Falcon sedan and a silver-coloured Holden Commodore believed to have been used by his killers has been released by detectives in a bid to identify those responsible.
Police say the vehicles were purchased in the week leading up to the murder by associates of the offenders.
The Commodore was at the murder scene while the Falcon was ‘staged’ a short distance away.
The vehicles were found burnt out on the northern Gold Coast a few hours after the shooting.
“The vehicles were purchased about a week beforehand in the Ipswich-Redbank area, they were purchased by people who we know to be associates of the offenders, these offenders are associates of the Mongols outlaw motorcycle gang,” Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith said.
“We’re not saying these people are gang members but they’re clearly associates of that gang and operating under their direction and control.”
Police say they don’t believe the people in the car are responsible for the murder.
“We don’t believe so but they will have significant information which may assist the investigation.
“There’s an opportunity for them to take the most of this indemnity offer by the government.”
Police this week announced a $250,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction, revealing they were certain the Mongols outlaw motorcycle gang were involved.
