2011 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept

Kids have toys that they grow up looking up to as important during their childhood. Especially for those born in the 1960s, they often involve the Chevrolet Camaro and Hot Wheels. So just imagine if these 2 legendary brand names unite for one project? In 2011, they did just that, producing something that should bring forth nostalgia. This project is the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept.

Not Just a Toy

This unique Camaro concept is collaboration between General Motors and Hot Wheels design studios have united to create something that salute the origins of both the toy company and the car.

The inspiration for this project is a 1968 Camaro replica produced by Hot Wheels on the same year. This Camaro replica car is one of the 16 original Hot Wheels cars produced when they opened shop in 1968. The idea was to produce a real-life “Custom Camaro”, and they have accomplished just that.

Custom Graphics

The initial process was the sharing of ideas by the designers of both camps until they have arrived into what they think is the best design. This 2011 Camaro was a faithful replica of the ’68 “Custom”. The flat black graphics, the redline tires, and of course, the Spectraflame paint job, are all there.

Painting the car is quite a complicated process, because reproducing the chrome effect in such a large scale was difficult. But when it all came together, it was more than worth it. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept made its debut in the 2011 SEMA Car Show, much to the joy of both Chevrolet and Hot Wheels fans.
