Hot Wheels Legends winner of the tour: 2JetZ
Hot Wheels representatives traveled to the United States as part of the company's Hot Wheels Legends Tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the toy car. Along the way they looked for the next Hot Wheels model. They found him, and now one of the fans will have his auto immortalized.
The brand announced on Wednesday that it had selected Luis Rodríguez and your personalized 2JetZ basket as the winner in the search for a personalized car worthy of the Hot Wheels treatment. The judges selected Rodriguez's car of 3,600 entries. The 2JetZ will become a 1:64 Hot Wheels toy car to be launched next year. The judges who selected the winner included Jay Leno, the designer of Hot Wheels Larry Wood and the enthusiasts of Porsche Magnus Walker, among others. Rodriguez's car was one of the 15 finalists selected after 15 stops throughout the national tour.

All the authors of the finalists were on display at the SEMA 2018 show in Las Vegas last week. Chris Down, senior vice president and general manager of the Hot Wheels brand, said that the 2JetZ will be a car that both adults and younger enthusiasts love and will recognize.
The car of real size is destined to honor the veterans of EE. UU. And it takes the form of a hunting plane. Rodríguez built the car from scratch as a way of proving its limits as a builder. It ended with a 600-horsepower power rod with a central seat position, attributes absolutely worthy of the name of Hot Wheels.
Aside from the immortalization of his automobile, Hot Wheels will also induce the incorporation of Rodríguez into the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends.
For those looking for another way to celebrate everyone's favorite toy car, Chevrolet dealers may still have some 50-year anniversary of Camaro Hot Wheels on hand. It's too late to get a new set of 16 original Hot Wheels, but you can find it to get a good marker on eBay.
