The Hot Wheels Top Speed was a line of futuristic, all plastic vehicles introduced in 1995 and were dubbed the 'most advanced vehicles in Hot Wheels History!' as advertised on the packaging.

8 unique castings were issued exclusively for Top Speed and all featured a small metal hook on the bottom which could be hooked into a special launcher which was also exclusive to the series. 2 castings were only available in Top Speed as 'NEW Solar Flares Vehicles" the other six vehicles could also be found in the Solar Flares sub-series. The cars had a chassis bar on the base which could be moved forward for 'drag racing action' and back for 'loops, curves and pipes'. The cars did not have the name on the base but the names could be found on the rear of the packaging. They were advertised as having 'Co-Molded Wheels', 'Floating Front Axle' and a 'Ploy-Carb Body'. Each model came in two 'computer-age' color schemes which featured a transparent body, chrome interior and engine piece, brightly colored base, bright tampos and either Hot Hubs or Progressive Oval Wheels. The Solar Flares vehicles came with a tinted chrome interior and clear outer portion of the wheels.

The cars could only be purchased in packs of two or included in playsets. The two-packs also included a 'Catapult Launcher' and 'Accelerator Tube' of which regular orange track pieces could be connected to. The launcher was to be clipped onto the Accelerator Tube by folding down each end cap of the tube and sliding the launcher onto the end cap ribs. The car was to be placed on the launcher wheels down where the chassis hook drops down freely and the hooked placed into the slot closest to the end of the tube and pulled back until the launcher 'CLICKS' and the starter tab pops out. Press the tab and the car catapults forward at 'incredible speed'. 

Two playsets were released. The 'Ultra Pipe Fight' and the 'Triple Threat'.
