Gumball 3000 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 on 7/25!

By Gary Barnum

Remember that fun and zany 1976 film The Gumball Rally? It featured a race across the United States by several unusual characters in various cars. It wasn’t just a comedy film; it influenced other films and real-life races such as the Gumball 3000 in Europe.

Begun in 1999 by designer/racer/visionary Maximillion Cooper, the Gumball 3000 has become an annual 3000-mile rally through multiple countries. Drivers in the annual event include celebrities and even royalty! Entrants can steer their vehicle of choice to various check-ins at famous landmarks en route to the finish line. Prizes are said to be awarded for the following: most original car, most rock ‘n’ roll team, best wrap design, and for special actions during the rally. The contestant who represents the best example of the event’s good-hearted spirit receives the coveted "Gumball Spirit Trophy."

For 2019, the Gumball 3000 route runs from Mykonos, Greece to Ibiza, Spain. Hot Wheels celebrates the outrageous and delightful affair with this acrylic-cased “Spirit of Gumball Winner” edition of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. We’ll make a few of these available in our Shop on 7/25/19. But you’d better hurry if you want to win this prize!

I believe FTE's have been used on at least a premium, super, and RLC cars. There not just regular mailine wheels.

Kinda torn on this one. It'd be cool to have since it's Gumball related, but the details just aren't there for the price. I'll be making a last minute decision on this one.

20 bucks for plastic tires and base. This needs to be done correctly with R/R tires and metal base. This is a dollar car in a plastic case not the quality I was expecting. They gave the gumball 3000 a bad name with this car.
