The Real Thing...

One bad ass car.....












Ok, why didn't Mattel make HotWheels like this one when I was a child, It's a good thing my wife has allowed me to have a second childhood.

This is not a collector class die cast, but is one hell of a nice piece of shelf candy.

I think you would agree that Mattel has done a fine job of reproducing a fine work of art.

There is not much that I could say about this I will allow the photos do the talking.






The real car has  19x10 front and 20x12 rear one-off knock off wheels by Colorado Custom and  295/30-19 and 335/30-20 Michelin PS2 Ultra High Performance tires. You can also see Mattel even reproduced the 15” Red Devil Titanium front and rear brake rotor utilizing 6-piston calipers. And did a fine job at that.



This may not be a High end, fine die-cast collectable, what it is though is a reasonably priced die-cast that is a great recreation of a piece of automotive artwork. I would have no problem giving this as a gift to a beginning  diecast collector or to the most avid collector.

For a HotWheels collector this is a MUST have...

This car will sit on the shelf right net to the Franklin Mint cars, and most looking across the shelf would be hard pressed to tell the difference.    





Thanks to Mattel for the car to review....

With kind regards,
