Description

The Nitro Scorcher is a an original Hot Wheels casting based on a concept Formula 1 car, debuting in the 2007 New Models. This formula car has a metal base.

Initially, in 2007, this car was released in red under the name "Ferracin’". It said "Ferracin’” on the card and on the base of the car. It's rumored that there may have been some dispute with Ferrari or Formula 1 about this model. However, this was an packaging error, as it’s production name was used in 2007 in it’s release.

Mattel changed the name of the car to Nitro Scorcher. However the “Ferracin’” name was sometimes still shown on the base or the packaging of the car or in both. Even then, the car was still referred to as Nitro Scorcher, although the name Nitro Scorcher on the base was still in the packaging as “Ferracin’”. Mattel later removed the "1" tampo from the hood of this car, which is quite odd, since they haven't changed the tampos for any of the first edition color repaints this year. The fixed version of the car’s base appeared in 2008 and the “Ferracin’” name did not appear again after that.

Uniquely, it is also the only Hot Wheels car that can roll upside-down on Hot Wheels track.
