Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale diecast cars introduced by American toymaker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys then-owner of Matchbox.

Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale versions of their cars, allowing the use of original design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are now made available.
