Thread of the Day: What New Cars Would Make the Best Hot Wheels Cars?
The boldly styled Chevrolet Camaro and Fisker Karma are perfect for transformation into Hot Wheels and Matchbox 1:64-scale model cars. After all, some might say the two cars’ big wheels and eye-catching designs already makes them look like life-size Hot Wheels cars you can drive on the street.
Just ask Chevrolet. Starting in early 2013, the Chevrolet Camaro will be offered in showrooms with a visual-upgrade package that enhances the Hot Wheels-like styling already found in the base car. With 21-inch wheels and a red outline stripe like the redwall tires on early Hot Wheels cars, the special-edition Camaro doesn’t need badges for enthusiasts to see the resemblance. The Fisker Karma shown at right is another example of a new car that clearly made design a top priority during the engineering process.
Aside from the Camaro (which you can read about here) and Fisker, plenty of other new cars have the types of designs that could make them awesome Hot Wheels cars. Whether or not a new car has already been shrunk into Hot Wheels form, we want to hear what you think: What new cars, trucks, or SUVs would make the best Hot Wheels cars?
