5/18/2019 — The 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour made its way back home to El Segundo, California this weekend for its annual event at the Mattel Design Center. Hot Wheels brought out its full garage of 1:1 cars, and had stars like Jay Leno and Adam Carolla come out in support of the brand’s flagship event. While the Hot Wheels Legends Tour began in 2018 as part of the brand’s 50th Anniversary festivities, it seems as though this could be an annual tour as it was brought back — bigger and better — for 2019.
If you remember, last year’s tour picked one car from each tour stop as a finalist — with the grand prize being the winner’s car made into Hot Wheels form. And… if you have been following OTD, you saw that Luis Rodriguez and his car “2Jetz” was announced as the winner at SEMA last October. Well, today in El Segundo, we finally saw his car immortalized in Hot Wheels form as it was unveiled at the 2019 Legends Tour stop at the Design Center.
As previously reported, the 2Jetz will be in the 2020 Hot Wheels mainline, under the HW Dream Garage segment. It will appear in the first case assortment for 2020 which should hit stores in September. This is the third car Hot Wheels has unveiled for 2020 in the last few weeks as the @hotwheelsdreamteam has also shown the Subaru Impreza WRX STi 22B and the ’89 Porsche 944 Turbo.
Special thank you goes to Matthew from Matthew on Cars & Hot Wheels on YouTube for snapping the picture of the 2Jetz. Thanks, Matthew!!!
