Hot Wheels is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Z and GT-R nameplates this year. There’s an entire Nissan-only series in the main line, a first for a Japanese marque. On the official Hot Wheels YouTube channel, each series gets its own stop-motion video for kids, and the Nissan one was just released, titled “Nissan Horsepower Legends.”
There’s cherry blossoms, a winding mountain road, and drifting — everything you could want in a Japanese video. The cars include a blue R32, red R33 and green R34 (which also comes in a Super Treasure Hunt version) Skyline GT-R, as well as a yellow Nissan Fairlady Z and a new Z32 300ZX casting making its debut in white. It’s one of the best stop-motion clips Hot Wheels has done, and we’re glad it stars some of our favorite cars.
