Debut Series Speed Demons

Designer Larry Wood
Sharkruiser PrpHO


Description

The Sharkruiser is an original Hot Wheels design debuting in the 1987 "Speed Demons" series, which consisted mostly of grotesque hot-rods styled after real or mythical animals (something akin to Transformers during that time). The upper body fairly accurately reproduces the upper jaw, body (minus the tail) and dorsal/pectoral fins of a Great White shark.  The interior molding continues from front to back to form the fish's huge teeth and the car's two massive V8 engines and tail-pipes. The car's base extends to form the shark's lower jaw at the front and the tail at the rear. This unusual design means that certain versions actually have a tail and lower jaw that are a different color from the rest of the body. Unrealistically, the tail fin is horizontal, like that of a dolphin, rather than vertical like that of a real shark! (This is due to the way the car is designed. The engine placement would not allow the tail to be vertical.)

It reads SHARK in all-caps on the headers of the engine block.

There is also a motorized pool toy made by Mattel (under the Maxx Steel name) called the "Sharkruiser".
