There are a lot of models in the Hot Wheels Heritage premium line that I have been looking forward to. None tops the BMW 2002. And now we have a first gander at what is coming.
The Heritage line, so far, has been a success. Most of the first batch doesn’t stay on the pegs long, and that is bound to be the same case with the second batch, considering the ever-popular Hakosuka Skyline and ’55 Gasser are included. But it will be interesting to see if the lack of Real Riders in the second batch has any effect.
I personally prefer the Real Riders, so I was very happy to see that the BMW 2002 was included in the RR segment. And now that I have seen it, my mind hasn’t changed at all.
Hot Wheels went with a simple racing livery over silver for the 2002, and most importantly, sat it on perfect wheels. The colors may not pop, but the model most certainly does. Now the question is whether or not front and rear tampos are included. That will be a big factor for how much we ultimately like this model. But so far, so good.
