Have you ever seen a car and said, “That looks like a Hot Wheels?” They are looking for that “Hot Wheels-ness” that nails the amazing performance and outrageous design they’re known for.
ORIGINALITY They’ve made over 25,000 unique vehicle models in the past 50 years, so are looking for something with unique details that stands out from the rest.
GARAGE SPIRIT It’s built, not bought, just like Hot Wheels. They’re looking to see some elbow grease that exemplifies the challenger spirit it took to build. Entries will be judged by five criteria (20 points per criteria = 100 points total).
The points will be judged in 5 catagories:
a. The Hot Wheels® Story Behind Your Build: 20%
b. Design: 20%
b. Authenticity: 20%
c. Garage Spirit: 20%; and
d. Performance and Fun: 20%.
The top car from each city will join Hot Wheels at the 2018 SEMA in Las Vegas for the final round and a VIP experience. The Grand Prize Winner will then have his or her custom car immortalized as a Hot Wheels® die-cast car to be sold around the world.
