The cartoonish lines might make it look like a huge toy, but now that's exactly what the Camaro can be with the launch of the Hot Wheels edition. Aping the 64th scale model's radical styling, the production car - a $6,995 upgrade package available on both the V8 and V6 coupes and convertibles - features a ZL1 spoiler and grille, 21 wheels and the all-important Hot Wheels flames.
Even though it's hard to take seriously, you just know it'll sell. But to make sure it has rarity value, GM, just like Hot Wheels does with its special editions, is only going to sell it from Jan to June next year. Big kids form an orderly queue here.
Elsewhere on the GM stand, the Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition marks almost the end of the line for the current edition of the people's supercar. With the new model set to debut in Detroit in Jan, this won't be ‘the fastest and most capable convertible in Corvette's history' for long.
