This car was a Hot Wheels original creation. In the AcceleRacers series, Mark Wylde was working on this car even before Spine Buster was destroyed. This car has an aluminum body mounted on a steel frame with push-rod suspension. The focus of a Metal Maniac's car is the engine, hence there is a 700hp steel ratified ram air super induced V8 with headers, coupled with a 7 speed transmission. The body has many distinct features; for example, the car's nose is wedge-shaped like a drag racer. The body has front brake outlets at the sides. Though the car's body doesn't cover the front wheels, there are kneecap shaped steel moldings that cover the wheels. There is a steel rectangular air pressure spoiler.
The tooling for the car was updated in 2014 and 2015; the front wing was made plastic in 2014 and the rear wing was made plastic in 2015.
