The Slider is a Hot Wheels original model designed by Phil Riehlman. It has massive air intakes cut in the hood, and huge speakers in the back. It is right hand drive and features a detailed interior with a stick shift and instrument panel.
This die-cast model is an obviously 'tooned version of the classic muscle car and was part of the 2005 Torpedoes subseries. The Torpedo style was a new cartoon style introduced in 2005 and depicts a car in a skinny, Torpedo-like shape with outboard wheels. These unique vehicles perform well on track sets but the exposed wheels make them more susceptible to bending axles. They are better suited for gravity-driven tracks than Wall Tracks or tracks with a Booster.
The Slider has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
