Dateline: EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Chevrolet and Hot Wheels today announced the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition, celebrating 50 years of partnership, performance innovation, and design. The commemorative package pays homage to iconic Hot Wheels features including a Crush exterior color and stripes that replicate the toys' famous orange tracks. The $4,995 package, available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models, goes on sale in the first quarter of 2018. "The Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition captures that passion, turning childhood fantasy into reality."
For consignment a 2018 edition of the commemorative 50th year collaboration between Hot Wheels toy cars and the big boy toy, the Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe. Bathed in Crush, leather interior in black with orange accents, and a 6.2 liter V8 under the hood, along with many other installed optioned "goodies" this is a fantastic toy in full scale fun. Did I mention only 1,020 original well maintained miles? This is number 537 or 872 built and only 1 owner from new...still on its MSO! It also has the GM Powertrain warranty until 5/1/2023.
Orange ya glad it's orange? Of course, and lets throw on a ground effects package, some satin graphite stripes, a unique grille with chrome inserts and black bowtie emblems, and a body matching rear spoiler. Big satin graphite machined wheels (20 inches) are on all 4 corners and a suspension lowering kit, it's looking like it could fit right in on that orange plastic track with the loop de loop, and high banked curves. This toy though, does not require the "stations" that the smaller versions needed to go through. These "stations" sported the foam wheels that would propel the cars around the plastic track. A black rocker panel aiding the ground effects encircles this car all around on the bottom, and of course orange Brembo brake calipers can be seen through those big wheels.
Electric sex could be some words to describe this snappy interior...all bathed in black matte leather and sporting some carefully placed orange accents it is just juicy beautiful. High back buckets with orange inserts and black bolsters complete with orange stitching and chromed SS badges in their centers and it is all serious rock and roll on this interior. Rear 2 plus 2's in back and just beautifully molded curved vinyl and plastic form this interior accenting, dash and console, with all molded in controls, backlit gauges, and a center Chevrolet My Link 8-inch screen with Bose stereo, navi, backup cam, Bluetooth connectivity, and other goodies to keep you distracted with your fingers. Sport pedals are installed and all this floating in black carpeting. Simple yet very visually effective, very HOT...wheels-esque.
Under the hood is a 6.2 liter V8 that will pump out 455 horses. This mill has EFI and an 8-speed automatic transmission, with a 3.73 limited slip differential on back. Several driver modes are available at the touch of a center mounted button next to the suede covered shift lever.
Like new as expected, but note electric power steering, performance suspension with MacPherson Struts upfront, and a multi-link in back. Power Brembo disc brakes are on all 4 corners and a like new dual mode performance exhaust is mounted on with all the ground effects panels. Stabilitrack Stability control is also optioned on this car.
Like sitting atop the hill on the orange track awaiting the holding gate to fall so I could propel myself down through the super dooper looper, and around the banked curves, racing to the wheel house to get more speed...but I digress, in reality it was much more exciting, with great acceleration from those 455 horses, fantastic handling, and the various modes give a totally different driving feel with each selection. Solid Brembo braking, and the suede wrapped steering wheel is just the right size for quick turning. Lets just say this car (orange) crushed it on the test track!
Those smaller toys were great on that orange track, but this version of orange is definitely juiced, sexy looking, and designed to look and cook. Many extra features on this Hot Wheels Anniversary edition, making it the ultimate adult toy.
