Chevrolet’s Life-size Hot Wheels Camaro
Early next year US car company Chevrolet will launch a full-size version of the Hot Wheels Camaro – one of the first 16 toy cars released in 1968. It will be the first time a car manufacturer has sold a full-size version of a Hot Wheels toy.
Based on the styling of the original toy, the car will have a bright blue metallic paint finish, 21-inch black wheels with red outline stripes and a black-and-red leather interior. The fender will feature a ghostly flame design. The Hot Wheels logo will appear on the front seats and as a decal on both doors.
The limited-edition car will be available as a coupe or convertible, and can be pre-ordered from November 1. However, it will not officially go on sale until early 2013. The car was unveiled earlier this week at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas.
