The #2018 Hot Wheels #Night Burnerz 5-Pack hit the pegs back in January and even after a couple months at retail here in the United States, the 5-Pack seems to be selling (for just over its retail price) online. Collectors attributed the initial surge in secondary market value to the ’85 Honda CR-X and #’08 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. While those, and this 5-Pack as a whole are nice, its the golden #Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R that led me to purchase this 5-Pack.
First, if you didn’t already know, I collect all Hot Wheels #Vipers so this purchase was going to happen as soon as I found out the #Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R was included. Its not the best Hot Wheels Viper out there as it lacks a lot of detail and it has that infamous “up-sloped” chin, but man, it looks good in that metalflake gold! Since this is Hot Wheels 50th birthday, I feel like at least one car from every 5-Pack should have been this color.
This #2018 Hot Wheels #Night Burnerz 5-Pack release of the #Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R is the sixth variant of this casting that made its debut in 2015 — just know that I’m kicking myself for not getting a group shot! If this, or any of the other four cars in this 5-Pack pique your interest, look for it at retail now.
