The new 2012 Hot Wheels Camaro is joined at the 2012 SEMA show with a fabulously restomod 67 version featuring the same sort of details. This car is a full scale version of the original Hot Wheels custom Camaro toy, but it’s not that loyal to the first-gen Camaro on which it’s based.
The proportions are not the same as the original Camaro, and it features an LS3 E-ROD Connect and Cruise crate powertrain with 430 hp and a 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission. It is a pretty interesting bit of kit though, full of amazing details.
The Kinetic Blue exterior has no door handles because of the remote keyless entry system, the hood is designed to look like the original toy, it has stainless steel “zoomie” side-exit exhausts, and custom 18×9-inch (front) and 18×11-inch (rear) aluminum wheels with red-line accents.
Inside the cabin the 67 Camaro is fitted with shortened bucket seats wrapped in white leather, silver vinyl-wrapped instrument panel, door panels and rear inner quarter panels, and silver perforated headliner and sunshades. A leather steering wheel and custom instrument panel wrap up the changes.
Underneath that retro body you find a pretty modern chassis, featuring coil-over shocks, a four-link rear suspension with adjustable coil-overs, rack-and-pinion steering and heavy-duty four-wheel disc brakes featuring six-piston calipers.
