Dear Collector,

Hot Wheels Elite™ is pleased to share the latest news with you!

1:18th SCALE FERRARI 458 ITALIA GT2 – LM 2012 – AF CORSE


The Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 is a competition version of the 458 Italia. It was built by Ferrari in co-operation with Michelotto Automobili and made its debut at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2011.

With an 8-cylinder engine that delivers 100 HP less than its road-going sister due to race regulations, designers and engineers maximized aerodynamic performance to help make up the difference. The GT2’s big rear wing, the reduced distance to the ground and three large air ducts on the bonnet are just the most visible of the many refinements.

Now you can enjoy the Hot Wheels Elite™ 1:18 scale reproduction of this customized AF Corse version that took part to the prestigious Le Mans Series in 2012! Check out the product page to view more images of this model. Click here.

NOW AVAILABLE: ENZO FERRARI – TEST MONZA 2003 IN 1:18th SCALE


In 2002, Ferrari launched the “Enzo,” a road-going extreme car designed in cooperation with Pininfarina and developed using the latest Formula1 technologies.
This amazing supercar, named after the company's founder, represented the pinnacle of Ferrari’s production. Only 399 pieces were built and sold to the very best customers for 1,000,000 USD.

With its 12-cylinder engine and great aerodynamic efficiency , the Enzo provides exceptional performance: it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.65 seconds and reaches a top speed of more than 350 km/h.
By simply switching to the “race” mode, the driver can deactivate the traction control system to enjoy the feeling of a real Formula1 car.

This 1:18th scale version reproduces this stunning car as it appeared during a test drive held in 2003 at Monza circuit. In that occasion, the body was not painted (leaving the carbon fiber visible) and a large rear wing was applied to increase downforce. You just can’t miss this rare die-cast reproduction!

THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY BATMOBILE
with authentic BATMAN movie cape material


The Dark Knight Trilogy BATMOBILE depicted in Christopher Nolan’s films is a tank-like machine modified from a military vehicle called THE TUMBLER. The films’ production designer described it as a car boasting “Lamborghini lines combined with tank functions: an armored riot control vehicle, complete with machine guns shooting rubber bullets and a large cannon mounted on the front.” This is the largest BATMOBILE ever, easily straddling a three-lane highway. Four street-ready cars were constructed, with each vehicle possessing sixty-five carbon fiber panels and costing $250,000 to build.

Two of the four cars were specialized versions: one was the flap version, featuring hydraulics and flaps seen in detailed close-up shots where the vehicle propelled itself through the air. The other was the jet version in which an actual jet engine was mounted onto the vehicle, fueled by six propane tanks. The full-sized vehicles were driven and filmed on the streets of Chicago. Our 1:18th scale model of this powerful machine features a custom-designed metal plinth with a swatch of authentic Batman movie cape material!

Hot Wheels Elite™ offers this must-have model to all Batman fans and enthusiasts! Learn more.
