Hot Wheels are simple scale model cars created in 1968 by Mattel and were a popular toy for children for years. And now, like most vintage toys, they’re not one of the top collectibles for many. But which are the rare Hot Wheels? 

Thanks to the popularity of these small cars, many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, allowing the use of the original design blueprints and detailing. This brought on many unique and interesting cars, some of which have been very limited produced throughout the years. Here are the top 5 rare Hot Wheels and why they’re valued so high.
