“A special run of the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition will be produced in the first quarter of 2013 – and like the collectable toys on which it is based – when they’re gone, they’re gone,” GM said in a statement. Prices for the package start at $6,995.
“Millions of us grew up playing with Hot Wheels,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Offering a special production model of the Camaro Hot Wheels is an opportunity to bring those memories to life, for kids of all ages.”
Based on the Chevrolet Camaro Coupe and Convertible models in either 2LT 323-hp V6 or 2SS 426-hp V8 trims, the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition mixes Camaro ZL1 cues with an electrifying Kinetic Blue exterior color and unique graphics. Exterior highlights include:
- ZL1 rear spoiler (coupe models)
- ZL1 front upper grille
- Ground effects package, including front splitter and rocker treatment
- Black 21-inch wheels with red outline stripe
- Two-tone matte hood graphic and rear taillight panel “blackout” graphic
- Fender “flame” graphics
- Hot Wheels grille and decklid logos.
On the inside, the black leather trim is accented with red and black seat stitching with the Hot Wheels logo embroidered on the front seats. There is also a Hot Wheels-style flame decal on each door. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is standard on the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition.
We love it.
