Variation Alert: Greenlight Club V-Dub Series 4 Gulf Racing VW Beetle


If you haven't already picked up on it, I'm going to throw this out there. There seems to be a wheel variation of the Gulf Racing-themed Greenlight Club V-Dub Series 4 Volkswagen Beetle. I first found this car at Wal-Mart in Canada, and it featured silver hub-caps. When my Green Machine arrived from eBay, it featured black spoked wheels instead. I chocked it up to a discrepancy between the Green Machine and the Regular Edition.

Fast forward a couple weeks and I saw the regular release with the black-spoked rims at a local hobby shop. The owner said the black rims were hobby-only. However, the only place I've seen the silver-hubbed versions are at Canadian Wal-Marts. Any further information on the silver-hubbed versions being spotted elsewhere is appreciated. For now, check out the pics and live with having to hunt down yet another Gulf Racing release...



























Happy Collecting!!

  1. I had no idea there was a variation. So far I have only seen the black hub version.

    1. Now if only I could find the silver-hub Green Machine! I've only seen 2. 1 on eBay when they first hit Canada and one recently traded on Instagram as part of a complete set. I would've jumped on the eBay one at the time had I known there'd be a wheel variation haha.
