Chevrolet Brings Hot Wheels Camaro to Life

Chevrolet is rolling out a new 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels Edition. The new variant pays homage to the iconic toy version, down to its Crush exterior hue and stripe package.

“The Chevrolet Performance design studio is full of designers who were inspired by Hot Wheels,” said Tom Peters, director of Exterior Design for Chevrolet Performance Cars. “The Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition captures that passion, turning childhood fantasy into reality.”

This time around the Hot Wheels Edition package is available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS models as a $4,995 option. Forking over the extra cash will yield you:

  • Satin Graphite stripes with Silver Ice Metallic accents
  • Satin Graphite ground effects
  • 20-inch forged aluminum wheels (with summer-only tires on SS) in Satin Graphite with milled faces and unique center caps
  • 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels fender badges
  • Unique grille with Galvano Chrome inserts
  • Orange brake calipers
  • Dark taillamps
  • Black taillamp panel with the Hot Wheels emblem
  • Black Chevrolet bowtie emblems
  • Jet Black leather-appointed interior with exclusive orange inserts and orange accent stitching
  • Orange kneepads on the doors and orange safety belts
  • Embossed front-seat headrests
  • 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badge on the steering wheel
  • Illuminated doorsill plates with 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badges
  • Premium carpeted floor mats with orange stitching and “ghost” stripes

This is the first time a Hot Wheels Edition has been offered on the sixth-generation Camaro. It will arrive in dealerships in the first quarter of 2018.

    It's good to see GM finally bring orange back as a Camaro paint option.

    Marketing bro!


    I hear ya... I'm just jaded to the "stickers-and-stitches" special editions that are so prolific with GM products. Especially when I see other manufacturers' special editions offer something, ya know, substantially special. The Colorado ZR2 is a good example of what a special edition SHOULD be, IMO; an OEM package that offers capability/equipment noticeably beyond that which is available via the "base" model (the model on which the special edition is based). By and large, though, it's generally pretty unique in that way (relative to other modern GM products).

    Though, like I said, these packages have to be damn near pure profit, because there's can't be much engineering that goes into them, and the modeling can damn near all be done with photoshop.

    Oh good, another appearance-only GM special edition.

    That said, those packages have to be pure profit... so if they can sell them, keep on keepin' on, I guess.
