NEW! Hot Wheels BMW 2002
I've been collecting Hot Wheels, Matchbox and Johnny Lightning cars for years, and I've never come across my all-time favorite car in the world, the BMW 2002. As much as I love MINI Coopers (especially my own), a full sized, fully restored 2002 would be my ultimate dream ride.
I do own a few Diecast BMW 2002s, but in 1/18th scale. Those are rare and hard to find at a decent price. Plus, that scale is a bit big to collect very many. That's why the Hot Wheels model is perfect - it's small and bargain priced for any collector. That being said, I hope Hot Wheels follows it's typical production run of a new mold, where they produce a few different designs and colors. I'll have to keep an eye out for more iterations.
