Model: Studebaker Avanti
Release: 2011 Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt
Why I am featuring it: I am featuring it simply because it is a casting has only been out a couple of times and it is a cool Super Treasure Hunt. The casting debuted in the Classics line in 2009 and alike all the cars in that series, it had multiple color variations. Also the series it was in which was Classics Series 5 had chase cars with Real Rider tires. I don’t have any of those releases in my collection but I would not mind adding them.
This is the only version of the casting that I have which is the Super Treasure Hunt from 2011. It is a really nice looking STH. Like it’s other versions in the Classics series, this has a metal body and base. The Spectraflame gold color and the subtle graphics look great on this car. The car also has graphics on all sides including the headlights and taillights. The wheel choice is good except for maybe the width of the front wheels causing them to stick out of the wheel well a little bit. All in all, though, I really like this one and wonder why the casting has yet to be used again since this release.
