It won't surprise you to know what I think of the Hot Wheels '73 BMW 3.0 CSL Race Car...


I don't want to go all #lamleyhype on you, but this is easily one of my favorite models Hot Wheels has ever released.  It is a magnificent choice for a Hot Wheels casting, and the execution is flawless.  

Fraser Campbell took on the design, and created a model that will never need from and rear tampos, because the window piece provides both.  That means the legendary racing car will always get a complete racing livery.  And that will always look good because Fraser created a surprisingly perfect replica of the actual car.  Front, side, and rear details are there, but most importantly, so is the stance.  


I would not have been surprised if a more lowered version was created, just to keep it slightly more modern, but this one has the more realistic high stance that the actual car possessed.  And yeah, don't think I didn't notice the chin spoiler.

There have been quite a few great releases from Hot Wheels in the last five years, and we all have our faves.  I would say Jun Imai's Kenmeri Skyline and Greenwood Corvette, as well as Ryu Asada's Porsche 934 stand out for me over all others.  This one might trump them all.

I've found a fave.  More to come...

  1. I really wish they would have included this in the BMW anniversary assortment that just hit stores. It could have done without the M3 GT2 since they include a stock M3. Then again two white cars in an assortment might have been too much.

    1. Plus the M3 GT2 has only seen the original 2 colors, nice to get a third.

  7. I agree with you John, awesome casting and more importantly quite "authentic" . Chris, you're right, as much as the Porsche Series brought me back to the hobby after 20 years of absence, I was not too impressed with the BMW Series, adding this casting in the series would have helped a lot.

  8. It is a nice model. The rear wheels could be inset a bit more to improve the look/stance.

  9. Front and rear detailing would take this from an 10/10 to an 11. Should be easy enough to do once I find one.

  11. Found it yesterday here in the UK...Superb casting, really captures the shape of the real thing...like the Skyline 2000GT-X from 2011 feels like one for collectors casually dropped into the mainline...

  13. They had set. Age does not necessarily prevent you from learning. One of the common misconceptions cogniflex about the brain is that as we grow older this organ, which might arise that make it difficult further attempts to study. This is true, but in such a small extent that in most cases has no practical importance. Learning is linked to the right to create new circuits in the brain "resonant", and as long as that possibility exists, it can continue to be enriched with new knowledge even at 90 years. Science sees no reason why an average person cannot keep learning, with at least 85 or 90 percent profit, up to seventy and beyond. It would be great if those who went "retired" began to specialize the new fields and to

  14. I managed to get one today. What a superb mainline casting and the detail is exciting to look at. I hope they go on to offer the #93 Alexander Calder art car for this mold. That would certainly catch my imagination.
