Description

The Flight '03 is Hot Wheels Original design by Mark Jones. It seems to have drawn inspiration from Tuner cars of Asian origin. This vehicle's design resembles two 4-door hatchbacks and one 2-door hatchback. The first is the E90 (AE92) / AE82 series Toyota Corolla 4-door hatchback (1983-1987) sold in European Markets. The second is the 2003 Toyota Corolla Ascent Seca, sold in Australia. The Hot Wheels casting was designed with an external body kit insert (interior/exterior body kit insert) that partially covers the panel area where the rear door seams would be. The third real-world vehicle resemblance of the Flight '03 would be the 1987 Honda Civic Hatchback, sold on many international markets.

A rather odd feature of the casting is the moulded Triangular centrepiece to the grille (which on the casting is part of the clear piece for the windows) which bears resemblance to the Triangular piece in the grille often seen on Alfa Romeo cars from Italy. The casting's interior piece also acts as a body kit on the exterior of the casting.

Another interesting feature of this casting is that, when looked at from an angle in certain light, the plastic of the interior piece (which the grille and headlamps are part of) reflects the light, making it look like the headlamps are glowing as if they are turned on. This effect may vary depending on the colour of the window piece.
