How Wheels Camaro To Be Released In 2013
Who says you have to be a kid to play with Hot Wheels? Chevrolet will be releasing a life-size Hot Wheels Camaro in 2013.
The Washington Post reports that the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition car will make its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas later this week. The car will go on sale nationwide in 2013.
This isn’t the first time that a real-life car has been designed after a Hot Wheels car, but according to the Post, this is the first time that a full-size Hot Wheels car will be widely available to the public.
The toy-style upgrade will be offered as a $6,995 upgrade to the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro.
Fox News reports that Chevrolet will only be offering the upgrade to a limited amount of cars. The company hasn’t given a specific number but they did say that they will only offer the upgrade during the first quarter of 2013.
The launch of the real-life Hot Wheels Camaro will mark the 45th anniversary of the famous toy. In 1968, Hot Wheels unveiled its original lineup of 16 cars, which included the Custom Camaro.
If you can’t afford the $7000 upgrade, you’ll still be able to buy a toy version of the 2013 Hot Wheels car.
