So, what’s going on? You’ve heard about Chevrolet and Hot Wheels – 1968 was the year that Hot Wheels released its first dark blue miniature toy model of the Custom Camaro. What makes 2018 so different then? Chevrolet has been partners with Hot Wheels for quite some time now. In fact, 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of partnership between the two major brands. Now, let’s take a look at what 50 years has brought to us!
Chevrolet has spent 50 years working alongside Hot Wheels, the toy manufacturer that produces miniature figures of famous cars from around the world. It was only a matter of time before Chevy decided to dedicate its time and efforts to commemorate 50 years of partnership with Hot Wheels by building a full-scale version of the iconic sixth-generation Camaro. Yes, you heard it. Chevrolet has turned your childhood dream into a reality with a huge Hot Wheels Edition of the Camaro – available in both Coupe and Convertible 2LT and 2SS models.
If you’ve been a keen collector of Hot Wheels for quite some time, it might be wise to know that there’s been talk of only 2,500 examples being produced – so, unfortunately, not all of us can enjoy the experience of sitting behind the 50th Anniversary Camaro Hot Wheels Edition. But, for those of you who have the extra cash in your pocket, and are lucky enough to get your hands on the full-scale Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels Edition, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that every other feature is orange – Hot Wheels’ signature colour – and each one will include the following:
- Features of Hot Wheels’ 1968 ’67 Camaro Edition
- Hot Wheels’ 50th Anniversary badge on a black suede-wrapped steering wheel – with Orange accent stitching
- Exclusive Orange Crush exterior colour
- 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels fender badge
- Black Chevy bowtie emblem
- Exclusive Orange and Jet-Black leather-appointed interior with Orange accent stitching
Listing every feature of Chevrolet’s Camaro Hot Wheels Edition would take too much of your time. So, when the times arrives that the 50th year Anniversary full-scale commemoration Camaro hits the market, and if you’re quick enough to buy your own, you’ll soon find out just what Chevrolet has brought to all you dedicated Hot Wheels fans!
Be sure to get your cash ready as Chevrolet’s Camaro Hot Wheels Edition is only set to be on sale for the first quarter of 2018 – once they’re gone, they will well and truly be gone.
