Camaro Holds the Honor For the INDY 500 Festival Car


chevy-camaro-convertible-hot-wheels-editionThe 2013 Hot Wheels Limited Edition Convertible Camaro 2SS will be the INDY 500 Festival Car for the 97th Indianapolis 500. As tradition, there will be 33 given to Indianapolis official, personnel, media etc. to drive around for the week to help promote the INDY 500 and also promote the Camaro.

The Hot Wheels Convertible Camaro will be a one time only production run. Coming this spring, you will only have to shell out a little over six thousand dollars more to get the Hot Wheels package and due to it's limited edition status it should be a true collectors edition.


The Hot Wheels Edition will be available in both 2LT and 2SS trims and will feature the Hot Wheels grille and deck lid logos, sill plates, bright blue metallic paint job, red accents and special rims and red line tires.

So if you do get a chance to purchase one, holding on to it would be a smart thing to do for it will probably double, triple and quadruple in wroth.

  1. think they should have chosen the Z28 rather than the "Hot Wheels"! The Z28 and the ZL1 aare the true "hot wheels". BTW if history holds, it will be the Z28 and ZL1 that will be the cars that appreciate the most but that is several years into the future!

    1. I agree, the Z28 and the ZL1 are two very nice pieces of American Muscle. The Z28 does not come out until next year, so maybe we will get to see a back-to-back honors of the Camaro at the 98th Indianapolis 500.

  2. Did you see Autoweeks article that indicates that the new C7 is still in contention for this. How could they not know about the Hot Wheels Camaro already being named. Do Brian does this mean you scooped Autoweek??????

    1. I guess I jumped the gun on this article, but the Corvette is a very nice choice.

  3. Hello, just a little clarification. What you are showing is the Chevy Camaro, which was named as the Indy 500 FESTIVAL CAR. The PACE CAR is the Corvette Stingray (also in blue). It was announced today. The festival cars are driven around town, the pace car around the track. Here is the story and images. http://bit.ly/152Q1Pu

  4. Thanks Elizabeth, the Stingray definitely deserves the honors, but I think a red or a black one would more complement the Corvette for color.
