Fun In The Shape Of A Life-Size Hot Wheels Camaro Coming 2018
Chevrolet and Hot Wheels announced the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition this week. The full-size fun is in celebration of 50 years of partnership, performance innovation, and design.
It pays tribute to iconic Hot Wheels features and includes a Crush exterior color and stripes that replicate the toys’ famous orange tracks. The 1967 Camaro offered a distinctive design with available hidden headlamps and a front sub-frame that enhanced responsiveness and refinement. In 1968, Hot Wheels elevated the performance of toy vehicles with wide wheels and low-friction axles, designing them to be the fastest toy cars on and off the track.
Another fun fact: The Custom Camaro was the first Hot Wheels vehicle released in 1968 and was part of the original 16. The toy was offered in about 20 color combinations, with Gold and Creamy Pink being among the rarest — and most collectible — hues.
The commemorative package runs $4,995 and is available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models. It goes on sale in the first quarter of 2018 and details include:
Satin Graphite stripes with Silver Ice Metallic accents
Satin Graphite ground effects
20-inch forged aluminum wheels (with summer-only tires on SS) in Satin Graphite with milled faces and unique center caps
