2018 Hot Wheels K Case Highlights

The Hot Wheels K Case is coming, and it marks the first case to carry the special 50th Race Team models.  Have a look at that, plus some great new castings.


Among the K case models, a vastly improved Countach, and a reversed Magnus Porsche.  I’ll say the Countach is the highlight of this case.  You?

  1. yeah that countach looks vastly improved. And awesome to customize, i’ll swap wheels and get rid of that light bar and make a regular countach

  2. There still eels like there is something wrong with the Countach, though I can’t put my finger on it. I think it’s either something about the rear wheel arches, or the rear side window/vents being one piece. Or possibly the light bar not being on the roof, but on the engine panel.

    Regardless, I do need to add it to the collection.

  3. The Countach is spot on really. A light detailing of the windo vents and of course maybe a light bar removal to create the stock version…or I can wait on the next variant..
    I hope there is enough material to shave down the wheel flares to design the original 74 Countach concept car. I did it with the older 400S.
    So I guess Ill need 3 of them.

  4. I too would like a new stock version of the Countach, but having seen a full 360 close-up view of this pace car version, I’m much more enthused now than I was before. It’s beautifully done, and I don’t think it should be underestimated how big a difference it makes that they did the light bar the way they did. Having that bit of interior piece break it up color-wise is genius. There are plenty of castings that they ruined when switching from a separate piece light bar to having it part of the window, and it’s because it just ends up looking like a big hunk of window with no definition. I like the way they did this.

    I’m also very excited for the Aventador, which I think has one of the best color combos for that casting yet, as well as the Maverick. I agree that it looks more striking in this blue than the debut. Good stuff.

  5. Some nice stuff here. I’ll be hunting down both Lamborghinis for sure. I respect other’s opinions on the Countach pace car, but am going to stick to my guns that I personally would prefer the stock car. Seeing this side by side with the older casting just reinforces how badly we need a redo of the stock car.

    For as cool as I thought the first MW Porsche was, this recolor is really doing it for me. Love the gold wheels!

    A couple of other K case picks for me would be the black & gold John Player’s Special-inspired livery Lotus Esprit and the white Borla Mustang.

    I’ve never really been a Ford Maverick fan, but there is something about this casting. And I agree, it looks even better in this midnight blue with gold.
