More news on the Gran Turismo collection from Hot Wheels: It looks like even the world of diecast cars can receive expansion packs!
- Nissan Skyline (R32)
- Jaguar XJ220 (LM Race Car)
- Ford GT (LM Spec II Test Car)
- Pagani Huayra
- Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe
- Aston Martin One-77
- Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera
- Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
Naturally, the Skyline is a shoe-in, but the XJ220’s inclusion, in the LM Race Car guise that has existed in the series since GT2, is an inspired choice. The Ford GT is also incredibly faithful to the digital model, though it does seem to have grown a very different rear wing. The surprise is the Gallardo, as that particular model is not available in Gran Turismo – though some custom aero parts do a passable impression.
From what we understand, this collection sits within the Hot Wheels mainline, the cheapest offerings from the diecast giant. What this costs in terms of quality is made up for in availability: they should start arriving in numerous stores across the globe soon. With GT Sport earmarked for a 2016 release, this collection looks like a smart bit of marketing on Sony’s part.
Meanwhile, T-Hunted also posted images of the original 5-car pack we reported on in January. Aiming for a September release, these Retro Entertainment cars are of a higher quality than the pack above, typically retailing for $4-$6. You can check out the Ford GT and Nissan R35 Skyline in the gallery at the bottom of the post.
Looking for some desk-top representation for your GT6 garage? You’ll have to wait a while yet for these official Gran Turismo cars, but you can stop by our 1/64 Model Collectors thread (where this was first brought to our attention) to chat about it now!
