Hot Wheels Fast & Furious Mix 3: All Cars Released

For most car enthusiasts, small cars are a gateway to the world of V8s and four-tail pipes. As I sit at my desk, there are three in my sights, a green Jaguar E-Type, a white Lamborghini Countach with a red interior and a Mustang with flame livery. The last of these is almost definitely a Hot Wheels. At some point between 1968 and today, the Mattel-owned toy car brand became synonymous with toy cars.

Producing both replicas and its own wacky creations, the brand markets cars for its manufacturers by putting them in the hands of people who can influence them. According to the Ministry of Diecast, the franchise returns in 2022 to the Hot Wheels lineup with a fan favorite classic cars that many collectors missed the first time around.

Mix 3 features five fan favorites from past collections that collectors may have missed. The first was the 1999 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning. At first, this model didn’t scream Fast and Furious, but driven by Paul Walker’s Brian O’Connor and powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8, the sports truck screams to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. As the car appears in the film, it has red paint and contrasting white The Racers Edge branding on the truck doors. Next in the collection is a Buick Regal GNX. Nicknamed Darth Vader, due to its turbocharger and all-black exterior, the GNX is the pinnacle of 1980s Muscle. The stars of ’87 GNX in the opening scene of fast furious (the fourth entry in the series).

Another gem from the late golden age of muscle cars, the 1977 Pontiac Firebird T/A comes third in the collection. Matching the reputation of the car in Smokey and the bandit, the Pontiac features in Fast Five during the prison break. Another icon of the muscle car scene, Dom’s ’68 Dodge Charger. Much like Bullitt, the Charger is black and has nothing but gold accents and a bold R/T logo on the rear fender. This Charger had many different liveries in its time in the franchise, whether it was the original Silver Charger or the Black Ice Charger.

Finally, the fifth model in the collection is the ’70 Chevrolet Nova SS. Hot Wheels finished the model in metallic silver paint with black racing stripes and a clearly printed SS logo. The model’s wheels are black, matching the stripes. An example of the third generation Nova is the Nova II as this small car is a shining example of Chevy’s greatest muscle car era.
