Hot Wheels Reveals A Very Cool "Spoilers" Mustang Boss Hoss
It is offered exclusively to the Hot Wheels Red Line Club members!by Alina Moore, on
’Hot Wheels’ is well known for offering some of the coolest diecast models out there. It is, of course, a way for people to get closer to their dream car models, without - you know, breaking the bank. Now, the company is taking a trip back to 1970 when it offered an explosive new line of cars called “Spoilers” that featured oversized blown engines. As a tribute to those diecast cars, Hot Wheels Red Line Club is bringing back the "Spoilers" Mustang Boss Hoss. Offered as a 1:64 scale, the new model will be priced at $25 and will be offered exclusively to RLC members.
Inspired by the Ford Mustang Boss 302, the “Spoilers” Mustang Boss Hoss, launched in the 1970s, was offered in a polished chrome finish that went by the name "Silver Special." The model offered today is a full-metal edition finished in Spectraflame olive, combined with black stripes on the sides, and light smoke-tinted windows.
The scale model is also offered with Real Riders five-spoke mag wheels with red stripe on the tires. This is actually a design element of the Real Riders that wouldn’t be introduced until the ’80s.
The interior is completely black, while both, the chassis and the engine, are fully plated in chrome. The diecast model comes packaged on an illustrated RLC blister card, packed in a Kar Keepers clamshell case.
As said, the price is $25, and Hot Wheels limits the purchase to one model per membership and five per household.
