Radio-Controlled Fun with the Camaro and Challenger

By Larry Hendrick | February 20, 2008

2009Camaroconcept Last week was birthday present time for the Granddaughter, so I headed to the toy section of the local big box store. I never pass up the chance to check out the big boy toys, and on this trip, I hit pay dirt.

Hot Wheels has outdone themselves again. Taking the concept design for the new, yet to be introduced, 2009 Camaro, Mattel built a great looking radio control version.

The package says ‘06 Camaro, but the styling is definitely from the 2009 concept Camaro Chevrolet is prancing around the auto shows. 

DodgeChallenger These larger Hot Wheel RC models are new to me, but they are great replicas of the full-size vehicles. I guess I’ve been out of the loop too long.

The other car catching my attention was the Dodge Challenger. The box indicates the design is from the concept car Dodge is introducing later this year. The new Challenger will feature a new mini-Hemi and by what I’ve read, be a real screamer.

Not only am I excited about these concept cars becoming real later this year and next—I’m excited about these RC cars.

BTW, I didn’t get one of these for the GD, but opted for a slightly more girly present. Maybe next year …

What do you think about these beauties?
