This classic 1967 Camaro has been turned into a Hot Wheels tribute car to help promote GM Performance Parts.
What you’re looking at is a classic 1967 Chevy Camaro that’s been turned into a concept tribute edition whose design mimics the old Hot Wheels die-cast toy from 1968. The concept is set to take part in the 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour, with some 3,000 cars participating in a 1,200-mile road trip that begins in Arlington, Texas, and finishes six days later in Charlotte, North Carolina. First revealed at last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, the Hot Wheels Camaro Concept is designed to be a technological showcase for GM Performance Parts.
Specifically, these include its LS3 E-Rod V8 crate engine and a 4L65E automatic transmission combo. Painted blue with redline wheels and side-exit exhaust, the car bears a strong resemblance to the '67 die-cast Camaro that was part of the original set of Hot Wheels models launched back in 1968. Other GM Performance Parts that will be shown along the journey include additional crate engines and even a Camaro ZL1 Convertible and C6 Corvette 427 Convertible.
