The Dodge Concept Car is a Hot Wheels casting designed by Phil Riehlman that debuted in the 1998 First Editions. The tool is based on a concept car originally called the Dodge Copperhead. However, due to copyright issues with the name Copperhead, DaimlerChrysler started referring to the vehicle as simply the Dodge Concept Car. So, the Hot Wheels version was named this as well.
Very few black interior versions were ever produced in China, their value today, MOMC, comes anywere between 200-300 USD compaired to Malaysia's purple interior that still fetches over 50 USD.
At a weight of 1.9oz, this metal based car has a great lower center of gravity and is great for racing.
The Dodge Concept Car has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
