Hot Wheels is Alive and Well

Hot Wheels replica car toys served as the first toy for many children across many generations. One of the most popular Hot Wheels replicant toys was the Chevy Camaro, debuting as both a production vehicle and Hot Wheels toy in 1968. After a half-century of producing Chevy Camaro diecast muscle replicants, Chevy has decided to produce a special Camaro Hot Wheels Edition muscle vehicle to commemorate the 50 years of this iconic vehicle.

A promotional video by Chevrolet has come out showing the new Hot Wheels edition in all its glory. Many generations can relate to owning car toys like the Camaro replica, as the video notes the memorable “diecast, shiny orange paint, sculpted windscreen, finger-assisted acceleration” that comes with every Camaro Hot Wheels toy. The latest 2018 Chevrolet Camaro is a true testament to high quality engineering, no matter what scale.

Now You Can Own Your Favorite Toy Car

Being the first of 16 Hot Wheel toys created in 1968, the Chevy Camaro diecast stood out back then and stands out even more today as a real-life vehicle. What does the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels Edition bring? Available with the 2018 Camaro Coupe and Convertible 2LT and 2SS models, there’s quite a list of bold features. Included are the Exclusive Crush exterior body paint color, 20-inch Satin Graphite machine-faced wheels (2SS models include summer-only tires), Satin Graphite stripe with Silver Metallic accents, Satin Graphite effects and a Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary fender badge. This is a vehicle that shows off in more ways than one, including its unique grille with Galbano chrome inserts, front orange brake calipers for the LT, black Chevrolet bowtie emblem and exclusive Jet Black leather-appointed interior with orange inserts and accent stitching.

Inside the Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels Edition

The feel of the Camaro is spectacular and drivers will enjoy the feeling of a suede-wrapped steering wheel. Complete with orange accent stitching and premium carpeted floor mats with orange stitching and ghost stripes, knee bolsters and seat belts, the interior is clean. Illuminated door sill plates with Hot Wheels Anniversary badge look sharp, putting the cherry on top of the coolest Camaro offered by Chevrolet today. The Hot Wheels package is an option to the Camaro 2LT and 22 coupes for only $4,995.

Coupes get a unique spoiler, but the convertibles must retain the stock wing due to the various radio, telematics antennas and GPS capabilities. The 2SS Camaro provides a strong 455 horsepower, 6.2-Liter LT1 V8 engine for a heart-pounding experience with each drive. Thanks to the dual-model performance exhaust, customers have the available option ($895) of being able to set a stealth mode to activate valves (aka bypass exhaust values) in the exhaust so they don’t have to wake the neighbors upon leaving their house. This is, after all, the most powerful Camaro ever according to Chevy that pushes to 60 mph in 4 seconds with the eight-speed automatic transmission equipped. So, for those that want a loud vehicle, both in style and due to the nature of owning the real-life Hot Wheels Camaro, this special edition 2018 Hot Wheels Camaro purrs quite prolifically.
