Description

The Alien was a Hot Wheels casting designed by Larry Wood, which debuted in the 1988 Mainline as part of the Speed Fleet segment series. The casting was the 12th car in the 1999 Final Run Series and as a result, the tool has been destroyed.

It is based on the real-life non-running prototype manufactured by IAD (International Automotive Design) which was revealed at the 1986 Turin Motorshow. Its modular construction proposed the idea that its rear mounted engine could be easily removed for maintenance, upgrades or just to suit the driver, although as the car was non-functioning, this was purely theoretical. The entire canopy also tilted forward to allow access to the vehicle.
