Popular maker of mini motor vehicles, Hot Wheels, officially introduced its latest creation, the Robocar, based on the Roborace autonomous electric race car. The Roborace company is devoted to creating a completely driverless racing series by 2021. The Roborace Robocar, launched in 2017, is crafted with an innovative, futuristic design dedicated to driving cleaner and safer.

That design now has a pint-sized partner in the form of the new Hot Wheels Robocar, a 1:64 scale die-cast version of the visionary fullsize race car. The Robocar die-cast was launched during a special event held in the Hot Wheels garage in Los Angeles, where guests were invited to interact with Hot Wheels “Challenger” tracks, and drive the Robocar in a VR simulation.
The event also featured a panel discussion with Hot Wheels and Robocar designers sharing their experiences on the quest to creating the die-cast and offered insight on the future of autonomous, green racing.
