2004 Shredded - Hot Wheels Concept Car 2007 Hot Wheels Stars Series 17/24 by Hot Wheels


Cuando Hot Wheels quiere experimentar con el diseño de un vehículo (y ellos experimentan bastante...), en muchos casos el resultado deja la sensación de agotamiento creativo, en otros es simplemente un desastre sin gusto, pero hay otros casos en los que definitivamente da en el blanco con un diseño que fluye, que desafia, que se aparta de la realidad y la funcionalidad para deleitarnos con la extravagancia. 

Lo sorprendente es que algunos íconos excéntricos de HW se basan en vehículos concepto reales, como el Deora I (basado en el Dodge Deora Concept de 1967 que diseñó Harry Bentley Bradley y llevaron a la vida real los personalizadores Mike y Larry Alexander). Lástima que otros no hayan tenido esa suerte... 

El que publico hoy, por ejemplo, sería un modelo que me encantaría ver en la realidad, pues sus líneas atrevidas y esquema de color rechinante me parecen fantásticos, es como la combinación de una lancha de alta velocidad y un auto Fórmula, desarrollado por Phil Riehlman... 

Las extravagancias continuarán, pues el dueño de este blog es algo excéntrico HAHAHA... 

Estoy seguro que DIOS nos tendrá con vida para una nueva cita la próxima semana (quizás con mi primer cubrimiento "periodístico" de un evento relacionado con la industria del entretenimiento, aquí en mi ciudad)... =)

When Hot Wheels wants to experiment with the design of a vehicle (and they experiment a lot...), in many cases the result leaves a feeling of creative exhaustion, in others it’s simply a disaster without taste, but there are other cases in which definitely hits the mark with a design that flows, that challenges, that depart from reality and functionality to delight with extravagance. 

What is surprising is that some eccentric HW’s icons are based on real concept cars, as the Deora I (based on the 1967 Dodge Deora Concept designed by Harry Bentley Bradley and brought to real life by the customizers Mike and Larry Alexander). Too bad others haven’t had such luck... 

The one I’m publishing today, for example, is a model which I would love to see in the reality, because its bold lines and creaky color scheme look fantastic for me, is like the combination of a high speed boat and a Formula car, developed by Phil Riehlman... 

The extravagances will continue, since the owner of this blog is a bit eccentric HAHAHA... 

I’m sure that GOD will keep us alive for a new appointment next week (perhaps with my first "journalistic" coverage of an event related with the entertainment industry, here in my city)... =)

I'm sure your readers won't mind the extravagances... That's a cute car and I think it does take on some design of a F1 car.

talking about my readers, i do hope that someone (apart from my loyal fans) takes the time to read what i write here LOL... the F1 racing in the beach could be a good analogy for this design and although i didn’t make it on purpose, this color scheme is pretty "corporative" for my blog HEHEHE =)

superboat! haha! HT does create new designs all year round and im surprised they still can churn it out year after year!

well sI619, i guess that the cast designers earn a lot of money with their job, so they must push themselves to the limit to create something tasteful, but that’s a crazy & risky game where they lose the north many times & win the rest by knockout which make their work worth... glad to see u again here commenting, THX =)
