What it was was fast, what is wasn’t was a surprise…
The BRE 240Z showed SOLD OUT 6 minutes after it went on sale, and it was most likely earlier than that. That means the 240Z, with 4500 produced, performed the same way as RLC stalwarts like the Blown Delivery, Drag Bus, and Texas Drive ‘Em, all which sell out in minutes as well.
That is quite the change since the BRE Datsun 510 went on sale. Only 3000 sold out, and it took 2 hours to sell out. What’s more, the exact same Datsun 240Z casting that was an RLC exclusive in nostalgic Hot Wheels livery was available in the RLC store for over TWO YEARS before it finally sold out on a Thursday Deal.
JDM is white hot, and Mattel knows it. If you missed out on this one, there is bound to be other chances to grab some Hot Wheels JDM goodness in the future, starting with the Shelby Toyota 2000GT later this year. RLC memberships are sold out now, but when the new RLC year starts, it might be a good time to join.
So, who got their BRE 240Z? Who missed out?
