Daniel Arsham and Hot Wheels to Launch “Lap Three” Drop


Hot Wheels, through Mattel Creations, has revealed the third “Lap” of its four-part collaboration with artist Daniel Arsham, a project two years in the making that sees original Hot Wheels models in the 1:64 scale reimagined in Arsham’s signature future relic aesthetic.

The collaboration started with Lap One, which featured an eroded version of the artist’s Porsche 930 Turbo and a crystalized version of the Rodger Dodger. This was followed by Lap Two, which saw the release of the “Original Sweet 16” Deora II and a replica of Arsham’s personal Porsche 356 Speedster.

As for Lap Three, it introduces two new vehicles to the collaboration, an eroded and uniquely colored version of the Twin Mill, one of the first-ever “Hot Wheels Orginials” designs not based on any real-world car, originally released in 1969. Accompanying the Twin Mill is an adaptation of the 1986 Porsche 930 Arsham rebuilt during his second collaboration with Porsche, featuring livery inspired by a 1980 entrant at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In addition to the two cars, a series of posters and a license plate inspired by the award-winning California “Sunshine Plate” of the 1980s will be available for purchase starting February 23 via Mattel’s official site.
