Popular toy car maker Hot Wheels has just announced its partnership with Roborace, debuting the latter’s first diecast model by the toy manufacturer.

Hot Wheels fans may easily mistake this model as another one of the toymaker’s exaggerated, futuristically cartoonish automobile designs, but it’s an actual scaled adaptation of the cabinless Robocars — a successor to the previous DevBot and DeBot 2.0 prototypes. The toy itself runs in a black and yellow colorway and proudly wears the number 33 on both sides. Honeycomb graphics add to the high-tech futuristic aesthetic of this mean machine. While the model car unfortunately doesn’t come with an electric motor by every wheel, fans need not be disappointed — the toy does include a “gravity-assisted autonomous driving” feature.

And in case you missed it, Roborace is the world’s first driverless racing competition, and you can find out more in our previous coverage.
