Hot Wheels Speed Machines 2023

Alle Preise inkl. der gesetztlichen MwSt. (kein Ausweis der MwSt. auf Rechnungen bei Artikeln, die der Differenzbesteuerung gem. § 25a UstG unterliegen).Next year promises to be an all-time great for motorsports. Endurance racing, especially, with the introduction of new LMDh cars from Acura, BMW, Cadillac, and Porsche set to run the triple crown of endurance, Daytona, Sebring, and Le Mans. There’s also some new cars in GT3, plus the debut of third-generation Australian V8 Supercars and a new Formula E machine. Here’s what we’re excited for.

While it is built to the LMH rule set, Ferrari’s first new factory-run racing prototype in half a century will race directly against the latest Porsche and Cadillac at Le Mans. The 499P and its 3.0-liter V-6 will race in the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship only, although Ferrari could eventually race the 499P in IMSA in the future.
While the Camaro is new to Supercars, the Mustang has been racing in place of the Ford Falcon for a few years. The next Mustang is based on the latest generation of the car, complete with its massive, aggressive grille. The debut of the LMDh brings four new factory prototypes to IMSA and Le Mans, headlined by the Porsche 963. The winningest manufacturer in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is returning with a turbocharged V-8 hybrid, set in the middle of a stylish new prototype. Porsche is partnered with Penske Racing to run the car’s factory programs in both IMSA and the World Endurance Championship, but the automaker will also provide cars to customers. Ferrari is also debuting two new cars this season, adding the 296 GT3 to the world of GT racing. It replaces the 488 GT3, which has raced since 2016 despite the road car it’s based on going out of production in 2019.Three of the four new-for-2023 LMDh-spec prototypes have V-8s. Acura stands alone with a new-for-2023 V-6, one that sits in an ARX-06 prototype that looks like a far more extreme version of their outgoing ARX-06. For now, the car is only scheduled to race in IMSA and is not planned to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

While the 963 may be grabbing all the headlines, Porsche is also debuting a new GT3 car next year. The latest 911 GT3 R is built with a focus on drivability, a major strength in the pro-am racing GT3 classes often involve.

While it may come with an unimaginative name, the BMW M Hybrid V8’s unforgettable design sets it apart from the rest of the LMDh field. The DTM-derived engine gives the car a unique story, while kidney grilles that light up at night add to an already otherworldly design. BMW will race the car in IMSA GTP with Rahal Letterman Lanigan this season, then add a WEC program with WRT next year.
Cadillac’s step up from DPi to LMDh comes in the form of the V-LMDh, a prototype designed to take on both Daytona and Le Mans. The new car still features a naturally aspirated V-8, but the new engine is unrelated from what it ran in DPi. It is, however, the best-sounding car of the group.

The former V8 Supercars series, now known as simply the Supercars Championship, is introducing a new generation of car next season. The demise of Holden means GM’s entrants will now be running Chevrolets, specifically Camaros.

Are 1970s Hot Wheels worth anything?
One manufactured in 1969 or 1970 could easily fetch $200 to $400 he said. Hot Wheels hit the market in 1968, and even common cars from the earliest years of manufacturing can fetch $10 to $40 each, he said. So if you’ve got a shoe box full of early Hot Wheels, it’s worth sorting them out and determining their value.

As a distributor for Mattel, the company has grown beyond expectations. Their clients have come to appreciate and expect their non-wavering focus on product knowledge, attention to customer service, integrity, speedy-shipping and collector-friendly pricing, which are the very heart of the business.The truth is: #Lamborghini only built 4 of the 1:1 #Lamborghini Veneno (plus 9 roadsters) — 1 for its factory museum and 3 for customers. This car is a true #Exotic as most people will never see one in real life. The Veneno is basically as close as you can get to driving a street legal prototype race car, though your chances are probably greater to drive an actual prototype race car than one of these.

There you have it: the full lineup of #Car Culture / Speed Machines! Is this a one & done, an annual segment in #Car Culture, or the rebirth of the line? You let me know what you think. Either way, these 5+1 work well together and the hopes are that we definitely get more. As I mentioned above, I’m curious to see if the Hot Wheels racers out there take to them with their metal/metal construction and plastic CM6 wheels as they not only look good, but are legit #Speed Machines on the orange track! The #Lamborghini Veneno is one of those Hot Wheels castings that I go back and forth on. From some angles, it’s a behemoth … from the side profile it reminds me of a door wedge. Thankfully, I don’t share the bad angles on OTD! The bright red screams at you, just like the design of the car. That seems to be a good pairing to me. Hot Wheels Porsche 911 GT3 from the 2023 Car Culture / Speed Machines series (both black chase and common blue/black variants) along with mainline releases from the 2022 Factory Fresh mini collection

The #Porsche 911 GT3 is one of two #2022 New Models — the other being the #Pagani Zonda R — that made the quick leap from basics to premium in #Car Culture / Speed Machines. Former Hot Wheels Designer, Lindsey Lee, nailed the design of this casting giving it a nice wide-body look & feel with those smooth fender flares. The side mirrors and open spoiler are nice, crisp touches, all while maintaining the feel of the 1:1 car.

Hot Wheels 2023 Car Culture / Speed Machines: Ford GT LM (white), McLaren 720S (light orange), Porsche 911 GT3 (blue), Pagani Zonda R (silver), and Lamborghini Veneno (red)

The more I look at the blue/black #Porsche 911 GT3, the more I like it. With it being a new casting, you can bet we will see some more stellar releases of it as it was already announced as the Hot Wheels NFT Garage Series 5 Treasure Hunt. Building a collection of this casting is already looking to be costly!
Facts are facts and this Hot Wheels #Pagani Zonda R designed by former Hot Wheels designer, Sonny Fisher, is very well designed. The casting even has the fender strakes in the front and the metal rear spoiler is perfectly flat. Every edge of it is so crisp and I truly hope this isn’t the last time we see the CM6 #Co-Mold Wheels on it. The wheels are a great fit for the car and I hope at some point, the original matte black paint scheme is revisited in premium with gold CM6.

A couple months ago when images of the first wave of #2023 Hot Wheels #Car Culture / Speed Machines surfaced, OTD partnered with 1StopDiecast to bring you POWER RATINGS and a SERIES PROFILE on every 2023 #Car Culture mix. You can read what others in the hobby had to say about the mix HERE and how we ranked them before they were released. If you haven’t found these yet, you should consider grabbing a set (or a factory-sealed case) from our sponsor, 1StopDiecast.
The Hot Wheels #Ford GT LM is the one casting in the #Car Culture / Speed Machines series that is a carryover from the first time the #Speed Machines line was released. Heck, it was the only casting that is old enough to be able to. I was a huge fan of the Ford GT LM when it debuted in 2009, and find myself digging more and more with each new premium release of it. I unfortunately have neither of the two releases, as I wasn’t a huge fan of the deco on those. This one however, is a rehash of a very popular deco found in the #Gran Turismo Themed Assortment from 2018.The side stripes on this #Speed Machines release are pretty close to the ones that were available on the actual car. My favorite detail however, is the black “VENENO” found on LMP-style central wing that connects the back half of the vehicle to the giant wing. Again, it was something that was found on the actual car, so its great to see it replicated (finally!) in Hot Wheels form.

Obviously the all-black, chase will be highly coveted by collectors. What is underrated though, is this “in-color” variant. The two-tone deco is always fun; combine that with the gold CM6 wheels, and honestly, I am actually thinking the blue/black “common” variant is nicer than the chase. It is the only car in this series to have a wheel color other than gray. If you add in the fact that it isn’t as common as the other 4 cars in this series — as it doesn’t always come two to a case like the others — and you could be looking at a collector-favorite in the years to come.
From a no-doubt-favorite to the most questionable, the #McLaren 720S is the #Speed Machine I have been seeing left behind at retail. It was also our lowest rated release from this series. The color is cool, the casting is cool, but somewhere it isn’t connecting with the collector-base.The #Pagani Zonda R was my favorite #2022 New Model so I was thrilled to see it go premium by year two. So far we have seen 3 releases of the casting and all three are real world liveries. The best of the bunch the #First Edition matte black release — at least in my opinion — but these other two aren’t far behind it.

This batch of #Speed Machines is actually better than the original. Why you ask? Since these are full-premium, they have metal bases. The originals had plastic. This definitely makes the cars you see below faster on the orange track than their basic-level counterparts. Hot Wheels racers should take note! I expect to see a few of these racing at the next convention.

Back by popular collector-demand, the Hot Wheels team obliged in bringing back #Speed Machines and even carried over the original artwork for the blister card. The twist is that Speed Machines is no longer a stand-alone line as it — at least for this release — is now part of #Car Culture, the famed premium line by Hot Wheels. By doing so, the line actually makes a jump from the realm of semi-premium into the full-premium world. Some collectors have expressed disappointment in the wheels not being #Real Riders, but that wouldn’t be true to the original Speed Machines line. The Hot Wheels team actually went through great lengths to retool the CM6 wheel and you can’t help but wonder if said wheel will actually be available for the 20th anniversary of #AcceleRacers in 2025. I digress…
My case from 1StopDiecast arrived in early March. Much to my surprise, it contained the #Chase variant of the #Porsche 911 GT3. For those that don’t know, every mix of 2023 Hot Wheels #Car Culture has one vehicle that has a black variant produced in limited quantities — commonly referred to as a “chase” vehicle. Chase pieces in Car Culture tend to be all the rage, however, there is a much larger story here. This series is the return of the #Speed Machines — a 2010 line that paired #Exotic vehicles with CM6 #Co-Mold Wheels. Over the last decade or so, the original Speed Machines line has seen a meteoric rise in fandom from Hot Wheels collectors as demand (and value) of these have increased.With Porsche celebrating 75 years in 2023, Hot Wheels Marketing Director, Jimmy Liu stated it is one of at least two #Porsche #Chase cars in #Car Culture this year because of said celebration. There is something very menacing about an all-black Porsche, and the gray’ed out livery is certainly unique to this release.Perhaps its a case of this one being the lowest on the totem pole and you start to think of all the others #Exotics that could have been in its place. When the Hot Wheels #McLaren 720S debuted in the 2018 Factory Fresh mini collection, it was all the rage. Now, it’s the one car in this series that is being left behind.

The two variants in this #Car Culture / Speed Machines series mirror the two colors we received in the mainline in 2022: black and blue. Once you get these two in hand, however, you can feel that these aren’t basic anymore.

It is May of 2023 and we have yet to see mix 2 of #Car Culture (Spettacolare) show up. With 7 more mixes after Speed Machines, it looks like the 2nd half of 2023 could be full of Car Culture drops. Stay tuned!Gone are the #Gran Turismo markings, and added are a ton more details like front fog lights and everything on its rear. The obvious upgrade however, are those gray CM6 #Co-Mold Wheels — WOW! Talk about taking a decent piece already in the Gran Turismo basic-level release and giving it an upgrade. I am usually not in the camp of liking when Hot Wheels “rereleases” vehicles, but this one is a clear upgrade.

“There were a lot of gas stations in the 1970s where if you filled your car up with 8 gallons of gas, you got either a free Hot Wheels or you got one for 69 cents, but most of them gave it to you for free,” Pascal said. “Mostly Shell gas stations, but also private gas stations wanted to get in the game.”Hot Wheels are the brainchild of Elliot Handler, a co-founder of Mattel, who was eager to create toy cars that reflected “the radical versions altered by custom-car shops — like vehicles he often saw on California’s highways,” New York’s Museum of Play states on its website.

“Early on, they had what was called Spectraflame paint, which was kind of a glittery paint. It was a very shiny paint,” Feeley told NPR. “But the paint they’re using now [for most cars] is not a Spectraflame paint, it’s not as costly of a paint that they use.”
Wu leads a design team of 60 people spread across the U.S. and Asia who are responsible for each Hot Wheels model. The team includes former automotive designers who have worked for Toyota and General Motors, he said. “Someone stole my Gucci car, oh no,” Wu said, laughing, unable to find the $120 car on the shelves behind him. “We did the Cadillac Seville. This was a literal Cadillac that Gucci did back in 1972. So we did a die-cast version of it for Gucci’s 100th anniversary.” Inflation, the curse of our pocketbooks and the Federal Reserve, has hit almost every good in the U.S. But the price of a beloved toy has managed to hover around $1 — for more than 50 years.Zahn is the editor-in-chief of The Toy Book, a trade publication that has covered the toy industry in North America since 1984. Inflation and other supply chain-related factors have boosted prices this year in a few toy categories, most notably action figures, dolls and electronic toys, Zahn said.

Wu, Mattel’s vice president of design for Hot Wheels, swiveled the chair in his Los Angeles home office in November to show off a collaboration the company did on a Gucci collectible.

The Cadillac marked Hot Wheels’ first high fashion collaboration and one that reflects the evolution of the toy brand and is a reason why so many of its cars maintain that $1 price.

How fast can a hot wheel car go?
About 40mph, depending on model – that’s how fast it’ll go if you drop it off of a suitably-tall cliff. We went to Maker Faire Detroit to watch the world record-breaking Hot Wheels loop. Read on to learn how it all works.
While Hot Wheels has fully embraced the nostalgic adult demographic, the production of high-quality, $1 cars, remains at the heart of the company’s mission, Wu said.Feeley, of Firestone, Colo., has been collecting Hot Wheels for about 45 years. Included in the 37,000 cars are many coveted Redline models, which feature a red circle on the sidewalls of their tires.”It is exceptionally rare to find a toy that maintains its price for a few years, let alone more than five decades,” Zahn said. “Hot Wheels are an anomaly in that the continued sales volume and razor-sharp production pipeline manage to keep costs just low enough to maintain that sweet $1 price point.”

Hot Wheels are a retail oddity. They remain one of the most affordable toys in the country at a time when inflation is chipping away at savings accounts and compounding credit card debt for many Americans, experts like James Zahn told NPR.”You’re gonna buy a Hot Wheel for what, $1.29 today, or whatever the average number is? It’s pocket change,” Pascal said. “One of the reasons why I think Mattel is so successful is, you know, there are 330 million Americans, probably every adult, every kid that you know, has played with the Hot Wheel at one time, because they’re so affordable.”

The result was an initial run of 16 Hot Wheels — including Camaros, Corvettes, and Firebirds — unveiled at the New York Toy Fair in 1968, MotorTrend reported.On average, The Toy Book has recorded a 15% jump in manufacturers’ suggested prices for a lot of toys this season; many products that would’ve been $19.99 a year or two ago are coming in at $22.99 to $24.99, he added.

That so many of those billions have been sold to parents looking for an affordable toy for their child says a lot about the brand, said Pascal, the collector.

Has Hot Wheels made every car?
Hot Wheels has designed a die-cast toy car for nearly every car ever manufactured and has customized some of the most iconic cars in the world including Dodge Dart, Chevrolet Camaro®, Ford Mustang, Porsche 911 and Volkswagen Beetle to name a few.
A glimpse at Mattel’s Hot Wheels store reveals a smorgasbord of collaborations (Nintendo, DC Universe), race track accessories, and toys completely devoid of wheels. The brand has also extended its reach into pop culture through categories like gaming, apparel, film, and NFTs. Then there’s Mattel Creations, which features limited Hot Wheels releases like the RLC Exclusive Nissan Skyline GT-R which retailed for $25 and included a full metal base and Spectraflame paint.

Are Hot Wheels still popular?
Today, more than 16 Hot Wheels cars are sold per second across the globe and more than 6 billion have been produced to date, the company said.
These initial models sold for 69 to 89 cents each (which is about $6 to $7.60 today, accounting for inflation), said Bruce Pascal, an avid Hot Wheels collector and author of Hot Wheels Prototypes which includes the narrative history of the toy.

Each Hot Wheels made today contains die-cast or metal in them but less than they did in 1968, Wu said. Parts of each car —which are produced in a limited number of colors— are also made of plastic; sometimes that can be the body or the chassis of the car. Investment in high-tech manufacturing capabilities and the introduction of cutting-edge technology have also helped keep costs down, Wu added.
“We like to say that everyone’s first car is a Hot Wheels,” Wu said. “And as new parents get back into the brand for their kids, it can sometimes rekindle the joy they had for the brand as a child.”The best-selling track set in the brand’s history is “Criss Cross Crash.” Released in 1979, the set comes with more than 16-feet of track and includes hairpin turns, motorized boosters and multiple giant crash zones that allow kids to load their cars in for spectacular near misses and high-speed wipeouts.

Can a car go 310 mph?
His BADD GT, a 2006 Ford GT, topped 310 mph on the extralong runway at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The Hot Wheels design team consists of experts from across the industry — with many of them coming from the major auto manufacturers, entertainment studios and toy industry greats. Every designer infuses awesome design, the freedom and joy of driving and self-expression into each design.Hot Wheels chose orange track because, just like the cars Hot Wheels created, kids were attracted to bright colors. The color has remained the same for the past 50 years.

Each year, Hot Wheels introduces new track systems where kids can race, crash and smash their Hot Wheels vehicles. By design, each new set is bigger and faster than the one before with special innovations, boosters and design elements that provide new challenges for kids that are rooted in creativity, experimentation and competition.
Today, this instantly recognizable track is the key to the entire connectable system of Hot Wheels play, allowing endless opportunities for kids to challenge their favorite Hot Wheels vehicles.

An iconic orange track system has always been a part of the Hot Wheels brand. The first track set was sold alongside Hot Wheels original vehicles, and was designed by Mattel engineer Marjorie Ann M. Smith, a.k.a “Margie,” in 1967.By allowing kids to try, fail and repeat with every loop, jump and stunt they create, Hot Wheels presents a unique challenge to kids through track play. The open-ended play allows kids to build higher jumps and harder loops to create new experiences every time.
