The Lamley Group Model of the Day: Hot Wheels Racing '12 Ford Fiesta...

This is one of those that is the epitome of the "cool little model".

I was chatting with a collector friend today, and mentioned how much I have loved the direction Hot Wheels has gone the last few years. It seems every batch yields another cool model that may not have been made a few years ago. I was talking to him about the Japanese models we have seen, but I think the Ken Block Ford Fiesta is another great example.

Just think about it. The Fiesta follows the Focus RS from a couple of years ago, which this year is a Super Hunt, just like the Honda S2000, which debuted last year, just like the Hakosuka and Kenmeri Skylines did. Yeah, a run-on sentence, but you get the point. It is great to be a Hot Wheels collector these days.

And in a series that does not generate a lot of excitement from me, this Fiesta is an exception. She's a looker...

Hot Wheels '12 Ford Fiesta (HW Racing):


  1. You sure that this is not a Matchbox?

    Absolute shite - will be avoiding.

    1. Ken Block version is far better - casting is worthy, but this colour scheme pumps swamp water.
