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! Specs: Body Color: Semi-gloss black Deco: Camouflage deco in blue, green, red, and beige; Lamborghini and Gumball 3000 logos on hood, "Gumball 3000" on windshield, and "3" on sides Body Type: Metal Wheels: New FTE wheels Base: ABS black Window Color: Light smoke-tinted Interior Color: Metallic black Packaging: Acrylic case in decorative outer box Availability: Available to RLC Memberships (until sold out): 7/25 at 9:00 a.m. PT Pricing and Purchase Limits: Priced at $19.99 plus shipping and processing each; extra charges may apply for express shipping or special handling (customers shipping to Canada may be required to pay additional shipping charges or taxes) We do offer international shipping to other countries – please see shipping costs and details here (international shipping availability subject to change) Limit of ONE (1) per RLC Membership Refunds only, no exchanges Production cars may vary from the photos shown.

    Regarding 9/24 Porsche 964 RLC Offer

    We wanted to provide an update regarding the issues that many experienced during the RLC sale this week. In between this sale and the previous one – in other words, during a time when we weren’t expecting significant spikes in web traffic – we took advantage of the opportunity to implement some necessary network updates. The recent notice about updating your account information was related to this update. Though we test these changes behind the scenes as best we can, sometimes there are unforeseen complications when the changes go live. That’s what happened with this most recent update. We apologize for the difficult site experience that many encountered on Tuesday. Thank you so much for your membership and support. Before our next sale is scheduled, we’ll be working hard to ensure that the issues which arose today will not affect that sale or any others going forward.
