Boom Car
Debut Series HW Ride-Ons
Produced 2017 - present
Designer Tyler Charest
Number DTX11


The Boom Car is a Hot Wheels original model designed by designer Tyler Charest. Tyler explains in the All Access blog on the Hot Wheels YouTube Channel that he wanted to make a downhill race car that put the "fun in function". This resulted in the Boom Car. According to Tyler it's unlike a "traditional Hot Wheels car", which is aggressive, a speed machine, sleek, low and fast-proportioned. It is the exact opposite of that idea: a motorless model, a real down hill racer. Minifigures can be inserted into the open cannon and flicked out by your fingers.
