Model: The Saturn Ion Quad Coupe
Release: Saturn Dealership Promo
Ebay Link: Hot Wheels Saturn Ion
Why I am featuring it: Here’s an odd one for ya. I did not even know that Hot Wheels made a Saturn Ion until an older collector at one of my local meets had two for sale on his table. I paid $5 for them and judging by the sold listings on eBay, I got a great deal.
This was a dealership promo that was released in 2003 along with the GM compact car from the now defunct Saturn brand. The casting was only released a couple of times and all were some sort of multipack except for this release. Also this is the only one worth getting in my opinion as all of the other releases have wacky graphics.
I actually think this release looks cool and it is a great addition to a Hot Wheels collection. It has details in the right places (front and rear) and the wheel choice is decent. Also, it is not likely that this casting will ever get used again so this is it if you want a good example of it.
