Back in 2009, BAPE’s designer ordered a custom Mercedes-AMG 300 GL Gullwing for BAPE Hong Kong’s 3-year Anniversary Party. It was a one-of-a-kind radical ride that only one can only drool over. Well, not anymore.

In a matter of a few hours, you will be able to acquire one. Albeit, a scale model by the way of the BAPE x Hot Wheels 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

Hot Wheels design team scrutinized the exclusive AMG-customized 300 SL, lined up the right Hot Wheels cast to match, and recreated the super cool, BAPE camo-covered Gullwing sports car.

The die-cast collectible features opening doors, an authentic interior, and a BAPE motif on the hood and doors, plus a BAPE vanity plate marked with the year of the iconic Japanese street style brand’s founding.

It will come in a display case featuring the Hot Wheels and BAPE branding, as well as the car’s namesake.

We have a feeling this thing will fly off the shelves because, you know, it’s Hot Wheels and it is also BAPE.

The BAPE x Hot Wheels 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL will launch on May 27, 2022, at 7 PM PT. The asking price is US$50.

In related news, BAPE and Hot Wheels have also partnered to launch a vintage racing-inspired capsule collection.
