The Carrera GT is a super exotic sports car built for the 21st century. Made of high-end materials and offered at around $450,000!

The Porsche Carrera GT is a Hot Wheels casting based on the production vehicle of the same name. The production version retained the same stunning lines as the concept vehicle, and was motivated by a racebred V-10 engine producing over 600 hp. This combined with a relatively low weight propelled the Porsche Carrera GT from 0 to 60 mph in well under 4 seconds.

Unlike the full scale model, the Hot Wheels version of the Porsche Carrera GT has been relatively easy to find, and relatively inexpensive, allowing collectors the chance to own one of Porsche’s highest performing and most exclusive models šŸ™‚

  2. Thats a very nice and very enjoyed model! Good macro photography, which gives a bigger scale feel. I missed this in my collection of 1:64 should hunt for this baby.

    Keep up the good work……
