2011 New Models: ’12 Ford Fiesta

This release of the Hot Wheels ’12 Ford Fiesta was in the 2011 New Models Series and is based off of the Ford Fiesta featured in the Gymkhana 3 video found HERE on YouTube. As you can see in the video, Ken Block, professional rally driver and co-founder of DC Shoes, drives a 2011 Ford Fiesta Rally Car sponsored by his rally team that had previously been sponsored by Monster Energy Drink. A still photo of the car can be seen HERE.

The Hot Wheels release makes a good attempt at capturing the coolness of this car but falls a little short. Still, it is a great attempt for a $1 mainline car. With the absence of Monster Energy Drink on this car, the “DC” logo and “Block 43” skull take up a good majority of the advertising space. The neon green wheels are traded for green-chrome in the 1:64 version and the Hot Wheels car does not feature a full body wrap like the 1:1 car.
