Well, yet another Ford Mustang casting by Hot Wheels – when will it just stop you wonder?
By the very nature of the beast, I don’t think it ever will – some of the castings look like shite, but this is a more well rounded version of aggressive GT350R
I keep having to remind myself that this is a £1 toy car, but fair play to Mattel, they get the majority of dealing right here, including the bonnet stripe. For once the spoke wheels actually work for the model as opposed to be just a generic and I have banged on about this time and time again, you can add detail to the front and rear ends as necessary to up the level.
A smart HW version and this is very well done by Mattel. It does show what they can do when they throw money behind this. Contrast this with the dribbling of castings that look half decent from the Matchbox stable. Mattel need to be careful not to overdo it on these “modern” muscle cars as the casting and appeal will suffer from fatigue.
