We’re only in January, yet we’ve been graced with several #Hot Wheels Race Team vehicles for 2016 — two of which, have come via 5-Packs. This #Hollowback, along with the Ballistik from the Track Stars 5-Pack have been great surprises, and both have worn the #16 for 2016.
While the usual “track 5-packs” tend to sit on the peghooks longer than most, throwing a race team vehicle in there couldn’t hurt sales as there are many collectors who love these blue cars sporting the iconic Hot Wheels flame logo.
Originally released as part of the AcceleRacers, the Hollowback joined the ranks of other #Former AcceleRacers to cross over as Hot Wheels mainline vehicles and as #5-Pack Exclusives. If you venture back to the AcceleRacers Hollowback article, you’ll notice the recast front end of this vehicle. The grill and engine support bar now are part of the body. This was a casting modification that took place before the 2013 Chrome Racers Series.
