The Hottest New Collectors Item: Hot Wheels x Gucci Cadillac Seville

On the back of Gucci’s 100th-anniversary collection this year, the celebrations continue with a re-releasing of its legendary take on the Cadillac Seville, albeit much smaller. One of the world’s most well-known fashion houses has teamed up with Hot Wheels to bring the hottest new collector’s item – a rare 1:64th scale replica of the 1982 model Gucci Seville.

Richard Dickson, the president of Hot Wheel’s parent company, Mattel, said in a statement:

We are thrilled to celebrate and honour Gucci’s incredible 100th milestone with an artistic take on a limited-edition Hot Wheels, reinforcing the significance of toys as art.

And the limited-edition Gucci Hot Wheel is already sold out.

Considering one of the most valuable collectibles of the ’90s is a Pink Beach Bomb Hot Wheel worth an estimated A$204,000, it’s no surprise savvy collectors were first off the mark.

Despite the smaller size, the Hot Wheels x Gucci Cadillac features all the details that made the original car so special. The all-metal die-cast body and chassis are paired with Real Riders tires. No expense is spared, the exquisite details include the classic Gucci logo and iconic interlocking GG pattern, a monogram motif on the roof and gold piping on dark leather seats.

The high attention to detail doesn’t stop on the packaging. The vehicle is encased in an acrylic display inside an authentic Gucci box and slipcover and wrapped in the brand’s signature green paper. Mattel designers Bryan Benedict and Ralph Benitez worked with the high-end fashion house to ensure this high level of design and accuracy, with Benedict summing up the collaboration;

Together, with our 2 powerful brands, we created something very special with this Hot Wheels x Gucci item celebrating the 100th anniversary of the fashion house.

Gucci’s first collaboration with Mattel Creations is limited to just 5,000 pieces costing A$200 each.
