Awesome cars start with epic ideas! Built to launch the next 50 years of amazing Hot Wheels cars, HW50 Concept is the 1:64 scale research and development vehicle used to create the mind-blowing full-size HW50 ultra-modern hot rod!
You can almost smell the rubber burning when HW50 spins its giant rear slicks and peels out at the dragstrip! This ultra–modern take on a vintage hot rod uses a study cross brace to shield the big–bore V10 engine. There’s even hatch in the roof so the driver can climb in and out of the cockpit!
