BMW Series: BMW 2002

2016 has been a great year for collecting Hot Wheels and the future continues to be bright as we inch another year closer to the 50th Anniversary in 2018. Looking back at the year, there weren’t many mainline trios as good as the #BMW 2002 from the 2016 BMW series. I think the Night Burnerz ’69 Dodge Charger 500 may hold the edge on “mainline trio of the year” but these three BMW 2002s are a very close second.

All three of the BMWs had different combinations of Black, White, Silver/ZAMAC and Light Blue. Had a fourth colorway been created, you could have bet it would have been light blue. Overall, this trio really pairs well with each other and should not be confused with the #Walmart Exclusive BMW Series: BMW 2002.

The black colorway was the first BMW 2002 to appear. It appeared in the 2016 “J” case assortments and was the only one of the three to feature different color stripes on the hood/trunk.
