Since the debut of its custom Camaro in 1968, every generation — and nearly every variation — of Camaro has been replicated in 1:64 scale by Hot Wheels. To celebrate 50 years of these die-cast dream cars, Chevrolet and Hot Wheels have announced the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition. In 1960s, Hot Wheels elevated the performance of toy vehicles with wide wheels and low-friction axles, designing them to be the fastest toy cars on and off the track. The original "Custom Camaro" was the first Hot Wheels vehicle released in 1968 and was part of the original 16. The toy was offered in about 20 color combinations, with Gold and Creamy Pink being among the rarest — and most collectible — hues.
This special commemorative package pays homage to iconic Hot Wheels features including a Crush exterior color and stripes that replicate the toys' famous orange tracks. It will be on display at this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas beginning next week. The $4,995 package, available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models, goes on sale in the first quarter of 2018.
