Hot Wheels fans: Youll soon be able to rev a real engine, take that “toy” car for a spin and buy a Hot Wheels for real.
General Motors Co. and California-based Mattel Inc.s Hot Wheels brand have teamed up to create the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Special Edition. It marks the first time the iconic toy brand has worked with a manufacturer to design and produce a production car.
“Its the first time a fan can go out and buy a real Hot Wheels car that they can go out and drive around,” said Felix Holst, vice president of design for Hot Wheels.
Chevy early next year will roll out the limited-edition Hot Wheels Camaro — complete with an exclusive kinetic blue metallic exterior accented by the red Hot Wheels flame logo on the front quarter panels and embroidered on the front leather seats — as a $6,995 option.The special edition Camaro with red-lined wheels and special graphics is available in a coupe or convertible, in the 2LT V-6 engine and 2SS V-8 engine trims. The Hot Wheels logo also will be adorned on the front grille, rear deck and on the sill plates in the doors.
