Attention fans of JDM (Japanese domestic market) automobiles. Hot Wheels’ next RLC (Red Line Club) exclusive is the holy grail of JDM, the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R. To JDM aficionados, this car is of significance. It is the last model to bear the Skyline namesake and the last of the GT-R to be powered by the revered RB engine.
The car and the engine, along with the likes 2JZ Toyota Supra, FD series Mazda RX-7, and 6G72 Mitsubishi GTO, represent the golden age of JDM. As such, we thought the Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Nissan Skyline GT-R is a must-have for any true JDM fan.
The Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Nissan Skyline GT-R, which is the new 2022 Japanese Convention Car, is the third colorway in this casting and it is a sight to behold. This miniature JDM model features an opening hood on a ZAMAC body with a detailed interior.
It has a full metal, matte black painted chassis, and a Spectraflame black over chrome body finish with the iconic NISMO livery and the Hot Wheels logo ghosted on the door. Completing the package are four Real Riders 5-spoke Modern wheels with black VUM hubs.
The die-cast model will come packaged on an illustrated RLC blister card, packed in a Kar Keepers clamshell case. Each vehicle features an individually numbered sticker (xxx/30,000) too.
We have no doubt it will fly off the shelves in record time and so, if you want to secure one, be sure to jot down this date: June 21 at 9 AM PT. Oh, before that, you will need to become an RLC member – if you haven’t already done so – which costs US$9.90 a year. The asking price is a modest US$25. It may not be expensive but are your fingers fast enough? The item is limited to one (1) per club membership and limits to five (5) per household.
