The Tour de Fast is a Hot Wheels Original Model that is designed with the 2016 Olympic Games in mind; the cycling sport specifically. The name is a spin on the most popular cycling event: the Tour de France. In those races, cyclists are part of teams and they have support teams that follow them during the entire race since those trails are lengthy. These support teams consist of (multiple) cars with bicycle mechanics. The cars carry extra bikes along with other materials the cyclists may need. Depending on the team size, you can see numerous bikes mounted to the tops of these cars. That was the idea behind this casting.
The casting has some French styling to it. It both bears a striking resemblance to the Avant Garde, and it has the front-end of a 1967 Citroën DS.
The Tour de Fast has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
