collectibles: Hot Wheels Team USA Olympics MINI

Hot Wheels Team USA MINI
Just in time for the 2012 London Olympics, Hot Wheels created a special limited-edition Hot Wheels die-cast MINI.  The Red and White MINI with redline wheels was offered only to HotWheelsCollectors.com members.

The Olympics are all about top performance, and this stylish vehicle captures the spirit of competition in eye-catching style. Created for the US Olympic Committee in support of Team USA, this car also earns the highest marks for good looks. Here are the specs:

  • Zinc body with Spectraflame Red finish
  • Nickel-plated chassis
  • Black interior
  • Clear windows
  • Black fenders
  • Real Riders wheels
  • Official USOC deco

The HWC USOC 2001 Mini Cooper comes with an individually numbered holographic sticker and ships in a Hot Wheels Kar Keepers case.

The original price was $16.99.  It’s unknown whether these are sold out, but they will probably be appearing on die-cast collector and auction sites.
