2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition May Be Forthcoming5
General Motors and Hot Wheels have partnered in the past for some pretty cool content—including a fifth-generation Camaro Hot Wheels edition—but it seems there’s something else up Mattel and GM’s sleeve.
A new video details and shows images of what seems to be a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition. The images show patent sketches of what could be another special edition Camaro in the near future. Next year is also Mattel’s Hot Wheels 50th anniversary. So, it could make for quite a collaboration.
The images show a blacked-out trunk lid, stripes and special Hot Wheels badging with a 50th anniversary marking. The last Hot Wheel Camaro featured similar appointments with special wheels, stripes, badges and unique wheels. It was also finished in a lovely, Hot Wheels appropriate, sapphire blue hue.
One interesting bit pointed out by the video is the optional placement of the SS or RS badge in the middle of the trunk. Currently, SS and RS-badged Camaros feature the emblem on the rear bumper. It may be an indicator of an option for the sixth-generation Camaro’s overall refresh coming.
Have a look at the video above and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

Transformers’ Michael Bay chose this design, and now there is a HotWheels edition. Great!
Meanwhile, adults with money (not monopoly paper) have been begging for the ElMiraj and Avista. Oh well.
Any fool would understand that loaning out a car for marketing and adding some emblems for added profits are cheap and easy.
But to build a Elmiraj that was a pure show car with no available platform to put it on in less than five years is not going yo happen. Also the Avista is a more expensive coupe than the already slow selling Camaro in a market that good coupe are struggling to survive.
Time to take a reality pill and grasp all aspects in play here.
It is a little more important to get a Cadillac sedan that is 100% right that sells in better volumes than a coupe that would be lucky to sell 40k units.
The original Hot Wheels Special Edition came out in 2013 with only 1524 produced. The paint is a very fitting Hot Wheels blue called Kinetic Blue that was only available on that edition. HWSE, however, were not cheap by any means with the special Hot Wheels packaging adding $7000 to the price on whatever base model you bought, part of that huge cost being the special 21″ rims! Please don’t generalize the original special with all others!
If you look at the drawings, the “RS” or “SS” logo will go on the driver’s side of the rear bumper. The bow tie goes on the center of the rear surface of the trunk lid….only the bow tie goes there.
I enjoyed to visiting your blog. You have done a really nice job.
