Description

The Road Rocket is a Hot Wheels creation. This race car has a carbon fiber body and a lightweight window covering most of the car. It's powered by a 1390HP aluminum fuel injected turbocharged V10 with dual exhaust, which gave the Road Rocket its name. Twin radiators cool the engine. The Road Rocket has double wishbone suspension on magnesium chassis and carbon ceramic 8-piston caliper ABS brakes fitted with 18" front/20" rear carbon fiber wheels. The Road Rocket has a three point nose cone and swooping rear wing, there are air outlets on the top to cool the engine. The transparent windscreen covers most of the top of the Road Rocket which is flat for much better aerodynamics. Twin tanks of gasoline fuel the powerful engine. The front and rear fenders create a vacuum to make the radiators suck air faster cooling the engine faster, the front spoiler sends air over the car further increasing aerodynamic efficiency and down force. The side of the rear spoiler creates a wave of air to both sides of the road rocket increasing stability control is increased by 45 series rubber slicks. The transparent panel can be opened most versions of the car; in 2015, the tooling was updated and the canopy of the car can no longer be opened.

The casting was originally named Rocket Shot in an internally-published Mattel list.
