The Side Draft is a Hot Wheels creation. It is powered by a 1100 HP 3.0L turbocharged aluminum W8 with side draft intakes, giving this car its name. It has a carbon fibre body on a magnesium chassis with coilovers, carbon ceramic brakes with 4 piston calipers, carbon fiber wheels, and 35 series rubber slicks. There is a triple nose cone. The front chin spoiler forces air to the front brake intakes, the front fenders drift into engine intakes at the rear with a spoiler which is half the side draft's girth. The back of the side draft has a rear brake outlet behind the rear lights and a transmission outlet inbetween. The engine cover is vented. The rear fender forces air to the sides of the side draft, which increases balance and creates a vacuum near the intake, creating greater suction. Air moves smoothly over the windshield, which covers most of top of the car but is also a quarter of the Side Draft's girth. The engine cover can also be opened on the toy version.

It appears in both the movie and comic versions of Highway 35, being a part of team Street Breed, and is driven by Dan Dresden.

It also appears in Stunt Track Challenge as a Stunt car.
