Unbelievable! That would be your reaction to a row of cars like these if you saw them on the street. With the fourth mix of our Hot Wheels Boulevard series, it’s like a fantasy garage parade.
The original ’69 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is known as the first production vehicle to feature dihedral doors (aka “butterfly doors”) and less than 20 were produced. It makes its stunning Hot Wheels debut here. Though it’s been a Hot Wheels casting, the Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno has been retooled! The AE86 was popularized for use in drifting, and it has appeared in manga and in popular films. The Kool Kombi, Volkswagen’s Type 2 Microbus, hit its heyday in the ’60s, but this customized Hot Wheels casting has been on collectors’ radars since 2013. Speaking of the ’60s, our original Twin Mill debuted in 1969 and was eventually made into a live 1:1 vehicle. Finally, the Nissan Skyline C210 – a fifth generation Skyline – became the car that first interested Europeans in Japanese automobiles. Our edition features a Chasing Js deco.
Each vehicle in the series features optimal classic deco, Real Riders wheels, and die-cast/die-cast construction. This series is exclusive to Walmart.
