Team Hot Wheels: The Origin of Awesome! is a full-length animated video released by Mattel & Universal to DVD/Blu-Ray on September 14, 2014 and premiering on Cartoon Network, November 6, 2014. It is the origin story of Team Hot Wheels when they were adolescent boys. They are skilled racers, but are hindered by their competiveness with each other. They must come together when a mysterious black car drives through their town, which creates a familiar orange track wherever it goes and transforms things it comes in contact with. With the assistance of a local garage owner named Larry, the boys figure out what teamwork is all about.

Notes

The four main cars that Team Hot Wheels drive in the video were released as part of the 2014 basic car release and the mysterious black car was a 2014 New Model release. The video also features four Mutant Machines, another Hot Wheels line released in 2014. The 2015 5-Pack versions of the 4 main cars more closely resemble the cars driven in the video, whereas the 2014 and 2015 versions of Rev Rod are seemingly identical. Even though each of the four team vehicles has the round flame symbol used on Treasure Hunt releases, none of them is a Treasure Hunt.
