Five decades ago, when Hot Wheels first saw the light of the day, kids were ecstatic. The iconic American brand was on a mission to create toy cars faster and cooler than anything on the market, and they did their job very well. Today, many Hot Wheels car collections attract not only children and teenagers but adult collectors as well.
What says the most about Hot Wheels’ success is that many automobile manufacturers licensed the brand to make scale models of their cars. Based on the original design blueprints, Hot Wheels’ cars are truly realistic and draw the attention of all collectors, regardless of age.
Thus, over fifty years, we have seen an array of collections on the shelves of Hot Wheels buyers. There were so many of them that it’s hard to handpick just a few and proclaim them the best. Still, we scanned the Hot Wheels car collections looking for the craziest ones, and selected five that may catch your collector’s eye.
Hot Wheels Muscle Mania
Yes, you guessed it right. The Muscle Mania is a wonderful collection of all kinds of muscle cars. Hot Wheels has been upgrading it since 2016, adding more and more vehicles every year. Today, it’s an admirable stack of the greatest achievements in the automobile industry.
We can’t even begin to imagine how many collectors want to complete the Muscle Mania collection. The 2016 counts gems such as the Ford Grand Torino, the Pontiac Firebird, the Dodge Charger Daytona, and the Camaro. Over the years, Hot Wheels added the Ford Mustang and many others. If these amazing muscle cars don’t make the collection crazy, we don’t know what does.
Exotic Mini Car Collections
Would our list deserve its name without the sports cars? No, we don’t think so. That’s why we included the Exotics collection of Hot Wheels cars, and you’re going to love it. If you haven’t yet begun collecting the vehicles from this remarkable Amerikan brand, you will once you check out this awesome selection of sports cars.
If you think we’re exaggerating, just read on the following couple of names and let them sink in. The Exotics counts on its shelves the Renault Sport RS, Lamborghini Huracan, Porsche Carrera, Lotus Esprit S1, McLaren P1, Aston Martin One-77, Jaguar XJ220, Acura NSX, and many, many more. Who wouldn’t like to have these model cars to show off among friends?
Plus, Hot Wheels adds a couple of internally-designed sports cars to boost the collection even more. These made a perfect aesthetical blend of several brands, so don’t miss checking them out.
Although you may find this collection a little less engaging than the previous one, it’s still well worth the attention. Hear us out. Collectors are obsessed with getting all the Hot Wheels’ vehicles without exception, so the brand made even more model cars than the total number available on the market. It tracked accurately the variants that left production lines over the years, debuting models closely at the same time. The Factory Fresh collection depicts this initiative.
You can find an array of amazing everyday commuters, sports cars, and everything in between in this collection. There are even a couple of Hot Wheels made-ups to make things more interesting. We spotted the Porsche 993 GT2, the Tesla Model X, the BMW M4, the Corvette C7 Z06, the Range Rover Velar, the Bugatti Chiron, and many more. Simply put, you are most likely to find your much-desired vehicles in the Factory Fresh Collection.
If you’re a fan of the track and want to have a magnificent collection of race cars, Race Day is for you. This pile of model cars counts some of the biggest names in the automobile industry, especially the ones that make luxury vehicles. There are many Caddilac, Porsche, Ford, Chevrolet, and BMW models that will sweep you off your feet. Naturally, Hot Wheels also included some of its own race cars.
In total, the Race Day collection is a must-have for anyone who enjoys speeding up and using all the available ponies. It will make a great addition to the home and look good in any setting.
Batman Hot Wheels Collection
Last but not least, we have a collection of Batman’s cars on our list. In fact, Hot Wheels offers collectors a wide range of movie and game-based cars. There’s an entire Marvel and DC-inspired stock. You can even find Jurassic World cars and monster trucks. However, we selected the Batman collection because let’s face it, this movie character drove some of the craziest vehicles out there.
Hot Wheels literally made model vehicles for every situation, including the Batmobile. Collectors have a chance to gather all the models from 2016 to 2021, including the super weird but exciting Bat. There are also models from the Animated Series and the Justice League. We shouldn’t skip on mentioning the Batcopter and the Batplane, with the latter one being available upgraded for 2021.
All in all, the Batman collection is only one of the many admirable ones from Hot Wheels. If you go through the entire catalog, you’ll find some fantastic pieces you’ll want to have within or out of the collection.
