Chevrolet and Hot Wheels are celebrating 50 years together with a new special edition Camaro just in time for SEMA.

The $4,995 package, which is available on Camaro 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible models, offers an exclusive shade of orange paint called “Crush” which pays homage to the iconic Hot Wheels track shade of orange. Laid over the paint are a set of Satin Graphite stripes with Silver Ice Metallic accents, while the car rides on a unique set of Hot Wheels inspired 20-inch wheels with. Coupes will also get a unique rear wing, but the convertible will not, due to integration of the antenna in the rear wing.

Elsewhere, the Hot Wheels theme continues with fender badges, smoked tail lights, orange brake calipers, black bowties, and a Satin Graphite ground effects package. Orange features heavily in the cockpit as well, with the seatbelts, seatbacks, kneepads, and contrast stitching in the same shade of “Crush” as the exterior, offering a Halloween style contrast with the Jet Black interior. The Hot Wheels logo is embossed in the headrests and also features on the steering wheel and door sills.

“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.”

In 1968, the first-gen Camaro was one of the first vehicles selected by Mattel for distribution, with Gold and Creamy Pink being the rarest of the 20 original Hot Wheels Camaro colors.

“In the 1960s Hot Wheels and Camaro challenged vehicle design by elevating the speed, power and performance of both die-cast and pony cars alike. For 50 years, both brands have developed high-performance cars that embody the challenger spirit.” said Chris Down, senior vice president and Global Brand GM, Hot Wheels. “We’re thrilled that fans can now experience the essence of Hot Wheels in this special edition Camaro.”

Chevrolet has scheduled a run of 2,500 cars for 2018, look for the Hot Wheels Camaro to go on sale in the first quarter of next year.

    Or....and I know this sounds craaaaazy...but there are TONS of places where you can probably get these done. Even legally, unless Chevrolet's deal with Mattel is exclusive, you can probably have a professional detailer/customizer do the deal and bake the license into the total price. I'm guessing the premium would be less than $4,995.00 (which these days is about 1000 Hot Wheels cars, I'm guessing).
