This morning I received some amazing news from J.P McCarty: Hot wheels will bring us a kaido racer die-cast!
I still haven’t figured out what car this zokusha is based upon: best fit would be the Nissan Laurel C130, but doesn’t feel right looking at the shape of the door. So can anyone guess what Hot Wheels based it upon?
More pictures can be found on the Hot Wheels Collectors site:
The Hotwheels site seems to be calling it the ‘Mad Manga’. I have a 7 year old boy who is pretty nuts for Hotwheels and they seem to have a fair few of their own creations with crazy names alongside their replicas of real-world cars so this could just be one of those. Although, if I had to put money on it, going on the window shape & rear screen angle I’d say maybe a KGC10 with roof-to-rear-quarter extensions perhaps?.
i think it might be a datsun 710…not sure by its japanese name… http://dayerses.com/data_images/posts/datsun-710/datsun-710-12.jpg
I don`t think it is based on any one car .
But I see a bit of Laurel C230 in there.
It’s loosely based on the c110, Jun Imai is the designer behind it (and recent influx of Japanese goodies like the rx7 and the kenemeri )
Ha, just bought one!
it can be based on a silvia impul
there was an interviue with the dude in charge of the jap hot wheels car on speedhunters a while ago. he said no compay gave them the permitting to make it off a car so its based of nothing.
