collectible of the day: Hot Wheels 2001 MINI Cooper

Hotwheels 2001 MINI Cooper
Since March is the month of MINI USA’s launch, we’ve been featuring many collectibles from 2002, the first year of MINI in the US.

Here is one of the earliest die-cast cars and possibly the first from Hot Wheels: the 2001 MINI Cooper.  The car is Liquid Yellow with a White roof and chrome wheels.

This die-cast is part of the Hot Wheels 2002 First Editions series and is number 28 of 42.

The packaging can also be found without the “Race & Win! Online” contest code.
