SEMA 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept

Chevrolet has shown their Camaro Hot Wheels Concept, a recreation of a small toy car made by Hotwheels, at SEMA 2011 in Las Vegas this week.

Hot Wheels is most famous for the small scale free-rolling models of custom hot rods and muscle cars it has produced since the range first appeared. The American company introduced its first sixteen toy cars at the end of the sixties. These cars were manufactured to approximately 1:64 scale.

The concept has an unique paint job. A special product known as Cosmichrome was first used to give the car a reflective metallic surface. After many test panels a green tint was applied, coat by coat, until the Camaro matched the original Spectraflame color of the Hot Wheels toy.

The vehicle will stay a concept and will not be introduced onto the market.
