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.
