Exciting news for JDM lovers! The next Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive is a, wait for it, Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R. Yes. That’s the GT-R with a SKYLINE and also it is an R34, which was the last of the most celebrated JDM before, you know, the Skyline namesake was dropped and the legendary inline-six was replaced by a less JDM V engine. Best of all, it is in hot Pink.
Folks, meet Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Pink Editions Nissan Skyline GT-R. For the uninitiated, since the birth of Red Line Club, Pink Editions are being issued only twice a year to honor the popularity of early Hot Wheels in this shocking hue.
While it is clear that a 1/64 die-cast can’t replicate the legendary power and handling of an actual R34, it clearly has the charm of the real legend. This die-cast version of the legendary which stopped production in 2002 is coated in hot spectraflame pink, accented with matte white hood and stripes on the sides before finishing with authentic manufacturer logos.
It features an opening hood, painted engine details, white accents, and 10-spoke wheels with matte white-painted hubs wrapped in Real Riders. The Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Pink Editions Nissan Skyline GT-R has a matte black painted chassis, a white interior, and light smoke-tinted windows. It comes packaged on an illustrated blister card and packed in a Kar Keepers clamshell case.
The RLC die-cast will be available starting on April 11, 2023, at 9 AM, PT, for US$28. You will need a Red Line Club membership to purchase this item.
