Lindsey Lee, said at the 30th Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention that the name El Viento means "the wind" in Spanish. Marketing chose this name because this car is "as fast as wind". Since this is an electric car a natural name like "El Viento" is very suiting. This model has a removable canopy and an adjustable front splitter.
