Upcoming Hot Wheels car looks like a McLaren SUV.

Could this be the new way of advertising upcoming cars to market?

Well for starters, it isn't. This actually is not a McLaren SUV. It's just an upcoming Race Team car in this year's Hot Wheels lineup. It is in fact, one of Mattel's original designed vehicles, or rather a brand new one for this year, hence the "New for 2020" logo in the top right. Of course you can't see it due to the fact the image has been cut.

See, when I initially saw this photo my mind immediately went to McLaren, given their rounded front end signature styling with corner swooped -shaped headlights. I've told people before when SUV's were the topic of discussion, someone would say "Oh, I hope McLaren never makes an SUV." From what I've heard, I may have misheard, but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I once heard McLaren say that they won't be making an SUV anytime soon, if at all. I for one, said that as well as mentioned that given their signature styling, that I couldn't comprehend what a McLaren SUV would look like. Who knew the designers at Mattel could have such comprehensive minds. Maybe that I need to be when I grow up. A car designer.

  • To me it looks a bit like theyre trying to make a Taycan fantasy car, which makes you wonder, will they be making the Taycan in the future?

    • I haven't heard of any Taycan diecasts yet. But if anyone is making them, they should be coming out here within the next couple month.
