Hot Wheels DeLorean Alpha5 debuts alongside a real car at Pebble

Reborn brand DeLorean launched its first car, the Alpha5, in May 2022. Production of the all-electric grand tourer isn’t expected to begin until 2024, but Hot Wheels has already made a die-cast model of the car.

The 1:64 scale model will be physically revealed alongside the real car this week at a special event at Monterey Car Week. According to Hot Wheels, the model took four months to develop, with the company using digital rendering, 3D printing and prototypes to achieve the perfect design.

“The Hot Wheels design team worked closely with DeLorean to recreate the Alpha5 as a die-cast car, carefully outlining its proportions to showcase its true lines as a Hot Wheels, while retaining the design language perfectly executed by Italdesign,” Global Director of Vehicles at Mattel, Ted Wu said in a statement. “We are delighted to share this special car with fans around the world.”

Hot Wheels says potential buyers will be able to pre-order the DeLorean Alpha5 die-cast model starting August 18 at 1:30 p.m. EST. We suspect the first deliveries will begin long before the real cars reach the buyer’s hands.
