The standard seems to be this:
Hot Wheels creates the first release of a basic licensed New Model in a stock or stock-like deco. There is a good chance a recolor is done in the same way. But after that, releases could be in all kinds of made up graphics. Custom stripes for example.
Mixing it up works. The side silhouette of a model as it sits in the blister is obviously important for those passing the pegs looking for a $1 toy to buy. Grab their attention and compel them to snag it. But card art is helping more than ever, with individual renderings on the card to attract attention as well.
So to me, that means more stock versions, if applicable. Enter the Bugatti Chiron.
This is a fabulous new model, hitting stores now, and it doesn’t need anymore hype. The collector world is ready to gobble it up. Hot Wheels in introducing it in a beautiful deep blue stock look, with the iconic front grill and side silver trim. It’s fantastic. It doesn’t appear that a second color is planned for 2019, so we wait and see what happens in 2020. I hope we see it again, just like this, only in a new color.
Two-tone would be ideal, but for a $1 car that can’t happen. Premium it can.
I mention all this because I saw these fantastic renderings by Lamley Reader Tanishq Chauhan yesterday on the LGG Facebook Group. He took the photograph above, edited in Y5 basic wheels, and had his way with all kinds of colors and combinations. The Chiron, like the Veyron before it, was built to don any color, so there is your customization. No need to add extra stripes or anything. Tanishq‘s photos show all the other things Hot Wheels can do.
By the way, Tanishq is darn good photographer of the real cars. You should follow him:

Okay guys, some of you must've noticed (even if no one did, it's okay lol) that I wasn't posting regularly during the last one month. Well, this is why. Me and @krtkphotography were in Dubai, shooting this beautiful Bugatti Chiron Sport. It was an amazing experience and one of the best shoots of my life. Thanks to my mate and inspiration @immaulik_akhaja for helping us out in Dubai. Special thanks to @bugatti.uae for the opportunity. . . . . . . Okay, whatever I wrote above is horseshit and the car in the picture is a scale model. _________________________________ #Autogespot #Amazingcars247 #blacklist #carporn #caroftheday #Dailycarspost #CarMad #Supercarsdaily700 #carlifestyle #MadWhips #supercars #motor_head_ #DriveTastefully #SuperCarsInIndia #india #dubai #GFWcomp #Supercar #Cars247 #hypercar #bugattichironsport #chironsport #bugatti #bugattichiron #chiron
Here are all the renderings he did. Collecting the Chiron could be a blast. Which one do you want to see first?
