Fresh from the baking oven that is the Hot Wheels factory comes a new line of 1:64-scaled die-cast special-edition toy cars that are far from the regular assortments. Calling it the Hot Wheels "Speed Machines" cars, these cars are uniquely different, not just because they’ve been given the "Speed Machines" tag, but because they come with a more-detailed and more accurate portrayal of the world’s fastest machines.

Children really wouldn’t be any wiser on the differences so its safe to assume that this collection is reserved for the inner-child of all car enthusiasts out there, including us. While we don’t usually play around with these toy cars, we wouldn’t be the least bit ashamed having one of these, including theFerrari 599XX toy model, to play around with at work. For starters, it’s not like we’re forking over a year’s worth of lunch money to buy one because they cost only $2 a pop. And more importantly, we’d rather have one of these than those stick-em-up figurines that are becoming the rage these days. Once a car nut, always a car nut.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

This is a must have collection, pretty neat and decent. And most of the sport car’s details are clear all the way.
