Carbonator is a Hot Wheels casting based on a glass soda bottle on wheels with a large spoiler styled as a bottle opener. Designed by Alton Takeyasu, the Carbonator debuted in the 2008 New Models. Alton's original, working name for the casting was "Bottle Rocket" but the name was not available for use. After many suggested names, the team ended up on Carbonator. Manson Cheung translated the design to a digital file, and adjusted it for track-worthiness. He added cool elements such as a "pop top" detail on the chassis bottom. Fun fact: the spoiler can be used as a bottle opener and the front can be used as a can opener.
The Carbonator has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
