Usually it happens the other way around: scale models are made of full-size cars. This time, GM has taken a miniature and scaled it up.
The Camaro Hot Wheels Edition is the first time a full-size, production Hot Wheels car has been offered for sale by any manufacturer. And that, says GM, comes “blister packaging and orange race track not included”.
The Camaro Hot Wheels Edition that made its debut at the annual SEMA customiser-and-accessoriser show in Las Vegas will be produced in a limited run. Its metallic paint scheme will feature the distinct Hot Wheels flame graphics and red-lined wheels. It will be available in coupé or convertible, with either V6 or 6,2-litre V8 power.
Incidentally, the original Custom Camaro 1:64-scale toy from 1968 was one of the original 16 Hot Wheels issued. According to GM, it remains one of the most valuable Hot Wheels toys among collectors.
