Hot Wheels Civic Si

Torrance, Calif. October 31, 2005

Mattel is probably responsible for more enthusiasts being bitten by the car bug than anybody else, thanks to its Hot Wheels line of micro-sized cars. This full-sized Hot Wheels Civic Si is designed to make you want to play just as much, just not on mom's living room rug. The engine is customized with a prototype Turbonetics turbo system, with a Spearco intercooler. It also boasts a Nitrous Express fogger system. The exterior is modified with Tein springs that lower the car over its Momo FXL wheels and BF Goodrich tires, a custom PPG paint job and a Hot Wheels/JCP Metal GT wide body kit. The interior features Momo seats, pedals, shift knob and boot, and a Momo Trek steering wheel with a quick release hub. The stock audio components were replaced with a Kicker system and Clarion head unit, and the door panels are customized with Hot Wheels suede inserts.
