With all that being said, sometimes Mattel delivers some absolutely stunning mainline/basic Hot Wheels that leave me shaking my head as to how they came up with such a gem for under a dollar. Lately, Hot Wheels has been using their version of Ford's 'liquid blue' color on a number of models, including non-Fords. It really does work wonders for the models. I have the Ford Raptor somewhere, but couldn't find it in time for my photo shoot. And the GT has yet to hit my country.
I think, however, the '17 Acura NSX and the Shelby Mustang GT350R provide ample evidence of how perfect mainline Hot Wheels look enrobed in liquid blue. Enjoy!
