…Hot Wheels can be expensive?

Diamond Hot Wheels

How do you make the world’s most expensive Hot Wheels car?

Easy: Cast it in 18-karat white gold, and cover it with 2,700 jewels weighing nearly 23 carats.

This “toy” was created by Jason the Jeweler, and celebrates Hot Wheels’ 40th anniversary, as well as the production of their 4 billionth car. Blue diamonds take the place of paint, white and black diamonds take the place of the engine, red rubies take the place of the tail lights, and black diamonds create the “red line” tires. Even the custom case has 40 additional white diamonds in it, with one for each year in the “legacy of Hot Wheels”.

Though $140k for a car with zero horsepower is probably a bit much, the proceeds go to a good cause, so I’m sure someone is going to be a happy Hot Wheels owner soon enough.
