Showcase: Hot Wheels RLC Lamborghini Countach & Mercedes-Benz 300SL and the evolution of the RLC.

Hot Wheels Car Culture enters its FIFTH year with Door Slammers. After so many hits and misses, is CC Hot Wheels’ most successful premium line ever?

Slammed Nissans, California’d Beetles, new and old Muscle, and a long awaited Toyota. Hot Wheels Cruise Boulevard marks four years of Car Culture.

Man this feels nostalgic. Not the slammed Nissan Hardbody, or the classic Chevelle, or any car in this set. Each feels actually quite new. I’m doing a photo feature and write-up.
