This collaboration is a part of the Gucci 100 Collection, which celebrates Gucci's 100 year anniversary. The model will be based on the actual 1982 "Seville by Gucci" Cadillac bustleback icon. The Hot Wheels car won't look anything like the $1 cars you see hanging on the pegs at Wally World. This premium collector's item will feature a metal chassis base and rubber tires, plus all of the Gucci goodness seen on the 1982 Caddy. It will also come with its own acrylic display case, complete with an authentic Gucci box and cover.

  • In profile, this Caddy looks like it was customized in the Vipemobile factory.

  • The Seville was a terrible car...it was strangely shaped with that chopped off trunk, but still had a hood you could land a helicopter upon......... a lot of them even had diesels in them, which were adapted Oldsmobile V8's which were converted into diesels (they also had a habit of breaking a lot....gas engines shouldn't be converted to diesels, as the compression ratios are WAY different). My father had one of those diesel monstrosities, bronze in color, and it could only manage a top speed of 52mph going over the Snoqualmie mountain pass on I-90.......that's in a 60mph zone. Another god awful feature of that car was the hydroboost brakes that got their pressure from the power steering pump. So, if you should find yourself in a serious traffic situation where you have to engage in some 'oh crap' driving, should you stomp on the brake pedal, the system would freak out and take away both your brakes AND your steering! My father found that out once when someone at an intersection ran a red light, and he stomped the brake pedal, and coasted right through the intersection and up onto the sidewalk on the other side......that, will make you evaluate the quality of your underwear. So yeah...............not the best collab possible.

    • That was a solid perspective and share. Never thought the actual cars were worth anything. But we live in weird/interesting times, where hype sells anything to those with disposable incomes

    • I agree, and that's the crux of the problem. I suppose the easiest way to state it, is that you could slap a Gucci label on a pile of excrement, but it's still a pile of excrement................though I have no doubt that some people would...

  • Sad state of affairs when the smaller hotwheel version is worth more than the real size OG working piece...
