Chevrolet might have known it had a winner on its hands last year when it unveiled the “Hot Wheels” edition Camaro, or maybe not, but this year the automaker will release the car as a limited-run package.
Whatever the real reason is, production will officially begin in the first quarter of 2013 on the car you see here. After that, there will be a short production run where Chevrolet will build as many cars with the $6,995 package as customers request. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the car is that GM isn’t limiting which versions of the car can carry the package – at least not very much.
Customers can choose between a coupe or convertible and between the V6 or V8 engines. The more specialized cars like the ZL1 and COPO, understandably, won’t be offered in Hot Wheels trim.
So what does the trim package include? Apart from the obvious blue paint, buyers also get special 21-inch “red line” wheels, Hot Wheels badges on the exterior, a matte black racing strip and even the spoiler from the ZL1. Finally, the rear quarter panels also get the Hot Wheels “flick” flame logo.
Inside, the car comes with black leather upholstery and red stitching as well as the Chevy “MyLink ” infotainment system as standard equipment. As a final finishing touch, the seats are embroidered with the Hot Wheels logo.
