3/8/2019 — Since Bugatti & Hot Wheels ended their licensing agreement in 2011, prices for Hot Wheels Bugatti Veyrons have soared on the secondary market. It was rumored that Bugatti didn’t want the Veyron to be produced in diecast form anymore so that is why Hot Wheels ceased production on that model. Later we learned that Hot Wheels no longer had the license so a Bugatti replacement wouldn’t happen either. …THAT CHANGES TODAY!
Today we learned OFFICIALLY that Bugatti would indeed be returning to the Hot Wheels mainline in 2019. The @hotwheelsdreamteam confirmed recent speculation by posting a picture — outside the Hot Wheels Design Center — of a Bugatti Chiron sample they received from the plant in Malaysia. With the Bugatti Veyron taking on a cult-following in the last 9 years since the last Bugatti Hot Wheels car was produced, you can expect this super car to be super popular when it is released later this year.
