A very limited Hot Wheels Toyota 2000GT will go on sale this Tuesday (ie, tomorrow). Wearing the livery of the Carroll Shelby SCCA race car driven by Scooter Patrick, it’s the latest offering from the official Hot Wheels Red Line Club for collectors, and it’s limited to just 3,000 pieces.
For the uninitiated, the Red Line Club is Mattel’s official club for Hot Wheels collectors. Each year, only a handful of castings are chosen for the RLC treatment, with highly detailed paint, throwback “redline” wheels, a metal base, and special box art.
The rules are simple. RLC members will get first crack at it at 9:00 am Pacific Time on Tuesday, September 29. Unlike previous RLC sales, this time you are allowed to buy only one (1). If any of the 3,000 are left over, non-members will be able to buy one on Wednesday, September 30 at 9:00 am Pacific Time.
Of course, if this is anything like the previous two, there won’t be any. The Datsun 510 sold out in under two hours in 2013. The Datsun 240Z (pictured above) sold out in 6 minutes earlier this year. You have been warned. Good luck, everyone!
