The Ion Motors Thresher is based off the vehicle of the same name in the Netflix animated series, Fast & Furious Spy Racers.
The vehicle was released in both the Year 2020 New Model Series, and the Year 2020 Fast & Furious Spy Racers 4-Car set. Interestingly, the 2020 New Model's name label on the base reads: "Tony's Car", while the Spy Racers version (where Tony actually appears), is labeled: "Ion Motors Thresher". This later version of the casting comes with the tab to activate the front grille guns.
The Ion Motors Thresher has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
