Superfine Turbine Description

The Superfine Turbine is a Hot Wheels casting which deuted in 1973 and was one of only three new castings released that year. It was only ever released in 1973 until it was retooled in 2010 for the HWC Neo Classics series.

It has a large jet engine in the front and a plastic door in the rear that opens up to expose a two tiered shelf. All domestic production models have a black interior and through-hole redline wheels in the front and 'Capped' redline wheels in the rear. 

All Superfine Turbines are hard to find, but pink is extremely rare. The Superfine Turbine is very hard to find and desirable and as a result, reproduction kits have been made (not through Mattel) and can be purchased cheaper than an original. Personal judgement and care should be taken when purchasing a Superfine Turbine to determine whether the car in question is original or reproduction.

The Superfine Turbine was also produced in Mexico through CIPSA (Compania Industrial de Plasticos, SA). All CIPSA Superfine Turbines have a white interior and capped wheels on all four wheels. CIPSA Superfine Turbines are extremely rare and valuable.

Both domestic and CIPSA Superfine Turbines have Hong Kong as their country of manufacture.
