Don't let the flowing curves and sporty look write the Backdraft off as just another sports car. This vehicle is all about the beach featuring a rust proof polymer body, easy entry cabin and a custom surfboard. Yes, a custom surfboard is standard with this model fitted in the rear of the car. No more strapping down the board to a car's roof is needed with the Backdraft's rear clip in system. Ride the pavement and the waves in style. Backdraft is one of futuristic European Car.
Note: The chassis of the Backdraft uses the same undercarriage casting graphics as Power Pipes, even though the chassis design is completely different on both cars.
Backdraft is powered by a mid-sized normally aspirated 500HP, 5.0 Litre V12, with it's top speed being 277 MPH. This car was driver by Finn Serpa in Highway 35.
The Hot Wheels Light Speeders Set was introduced in 2012, marking the final appearance of Backdraft before it was never seen again. Farewell Backdraft, may you rest in peace.
