The limited edition models feature iconic Hot Wheels color and stripes
If you've spent your childhood playing with Hot Wheels Camaro toy cars, you now have the chance to continue playing, only on a grander scale.
That's because Chevrolet and Hot Wheels today released the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition to mark half a century of partnership between the two brands.
"The Chevrolet Performance design studio is full of designers who were inspired by Hot Wheels. The Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition captures that passion, turning childhood fantasy into reality."
Tom Peters, director of Exterior Design for Chevrolet Performance Cars
Available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models, the $4,995 package goes on sale in the first quarter of 2018, bringing many styling and equipment upgrades.
On the outside, the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition models feature a Crush exterior color, Satin Graphite stripes with Silver Ice Metallic accents, and Satin Graphite ground effects. The same color is present on the 20-inch forged aluminum wheels that feature milled faces and unique center caps.
Each car also features 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels fender badges, a unique grille with Galvano Chrome inserts, black bowtie emblems, and orange brake calipers. The exterior package is rounded off by the smoked taillights and the black taillamp panel adorned with the Hot Wheels emblem.
Inside, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels is a bit more luxurious than the scale model, featuring a Jet Black leather-appointed interior with orange inserts and orange accent stitching, orange kneepads on the doors and orange safety belts. Unique details also include the embossed front-seat headrests and carpeted floor mats with orange stitching and "ghost" stripes. Obviously, identification marks are present too: 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badges adorn the steering wheel and the illuminated doorsill plates.
The Camaro Hot Wheels Edition will debut at the SEMA Show (October 31-November 3) alongside approximately 20 other Chevrolet models.
