Team Hot Wheels took one of the most iconic cars, the El Camino, to the Hot Wheels Test Facility to see what they could do to improve on the design. Going for the most radical design for an El Camino ever, they went around the car and gave it a new front end, and a new hood. Not stopping there, they went the the back end and added two jets. The air intakes start on the roof of the car to suck in enough air to launch this beast at over 400mph.
The Custom '71 El Camino has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
