MINICARS: Prepare yourselves for the Hot Wheels Hakosuka Skyline Wagon

The Datsun 510 Wagon has proven to be one of the hottest Hot Wheels of the modern age. Is it the fact that it was a Datsun, a wagon, or designer Jun Imai’s real car? Perhaps all of the above. If this 3D-printed prototype is any indication, Mattel will soon reprise its success with a new casting, the Hakosuka Skyline Wagon. 

Though rare compared to its siblings, the Skyline Wagon was a real model sold alongside its two- and four-door counterparts. It was only available with 1.5- and 1.8-liter engines, meaning four-cylinders and thus the shorter nose. However, as the Hot Wheels version proves, that doesn’t make it any less rad, especially when it’s slammed on small 4-spoke wheels. The car is slated to appear in an upcoming premium series.
