If there's one undeniable fact in the automotive industry today, it's that Tesla knows how to draw attention. After an unexpected but unsurprising partnership, toy company Hot Wheels will be producing and selling to-scale remote control cars based on the Tesla Cybertruck.
Hot Wheels will produce two versions of the RC Cybertruck. The first is a 1:10 scale model. In a more limited supply, this one will cost $400 on retail, has all-wheel drive, and can reach speeds up to 25 mph. Unfortunately, this one sold out almost instantly and Hot Wheels has a hefty waiting list.
The other version is a 1:64 scale model. Costing only $20, this three-inch-long model is made of the same die-cast metal as your standard Hot Wheels car. This version does not have all-wheel drive, though. They claim it has a 500 mph scale top speed. If you do the math, that means it can reach around 8 mph. Not bad, considering its size.
If you're interested in either joining the waitlist for the 1:10 model, preordering the 1:64 model, or seeing footage of the vehicles in action, check out Mattel Creations, a website dedicated to the project.
