Description

The Tricar X8 is a Hot Wheels Original Model designed by Larry Wood. It is on of the few three-wheeled models. With its sleek and pointy body it is capable of reaching high speeds. The wing on the back provides stability when going top speed.

The nose of the vehicle, the interior, the wing and the turbine exhaust are made of a rubbery plastic. This model is also one of the few models that uses the Micro Caster (MC1) wheel.
