Model: Ferrari 288 GTO
Release: Hot Wheels 2011 The Hot Ones
Ebay Link: Hot Wheels Hot Ones Ferrari GTO
Why I am featuring it: The Hot Ones series in 2011 and 2012 had some really cool cars in it with vintage Hot Wheels decos. It is a nod to the original Hot Ones mainline sub-series that came out in the early 80’s. The castings that we used in this throwback style series were hit and miss. This one is a hit for sure. It looks fantastic with the retro deco and black wall wheels. This version is what was in the 2011 series. There is a chase version out there that has “THE HOT ONES” printed on the wheels in red. Also, there is a black one that was put out in the 2012 series that is a lot tougher to get an affordable price. The casting is one of my favorite Hot Wheels Ferrari castings and pretty much all of the variations of it that have been released are desired by many collectors.
