Time Shifter 2017 mc.jpg


The Time Shifter is a Hot Wheels original model designed by Jun Imai. The design is a sedan delivery (or car-based van) version of Time Attaxi. The engine's air filters are molded with the window piece. The plastic from the window piece is concentrated at those air filters and therefore they appear almost black. There is a textured line on the car's windshield slanting down from the left, which is caused by the injection process of the transparent plastic (to fully fill the air filters).

The Hot Wheels Time Shifter was featured in a special event in Need for Speed: No Limits which ran from March 9th, 2017 to March 16th, 2017.


The Time Shifter has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
