Camaro Hot Wheels Concept

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

There’s been loads and loads of custom Camaros coming through the SEMA show this year, but this one is a bit more special.

The Camaro Hot Wheels concept is inspired by the “Custom Camaro” – the dazzling Spectraflame 1:64-scale toy that was part of the original 16 Hot Wheels cars released in 1968. It might looks like the toy, but it is actually powered by a 6.2 liter V8.
