Speed Team Series (2014 New Model): LAMBORGHINI SESTO ELEMENTO

Lately collectors have been chasing many cars from the Hot Wheels Entertainment line, especially the #Need for Speed Koenigsegg Agera R. While there have been quite a few gems found in that line, sometimes some real nice licensed #TV & Movie Cars can be found in the mainline as well. That was the case with this 2014 New Model, the Hot Wheels Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. While it did not play a crucial role in the 2014 movie, Need for Speed, it was featured in one of its racing scenes.

Another cool aspect of this release is that it was released in the same colors as the real car. Only 20 of the real 1:1 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento were produced in mid-2013 making this an extremely rare #Exotic super car. The name “Sesto Elemento” is translated to Sixth Element — which happens to be Carbon which is the main ingredient in Carbon Fiber of which the car is nearly made up entirely of.

So far, the Hot Wheels Lamborghini Sesto Elemento has only been released in the mainline since this initial #First Edition release. The new 2016 HW Exotics release in metalflake teal should be out in less than a month. But with only 20 of the 1:1 car produced (which were all the same color), the only way to get a Hot Wheels version of the real Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is to seek out this 2014 version of the casting.

  1. It was at least a big plot coupon in the film; the bounty placed on the protagonist was that whoever took him down got this car, and since there were only 20, that offered plenty of incentive for the other drivers to get aggressive. I gotta say, owning two of these in diecast form (one in-box, found abandoned on a local beach and cleaned up, both 2016 models), I can see the appeal.
