Hot Wheels is adding at least two more vehicles to it’s “The Fast and the Furious lineup,” DK’s spare Nissan S15 Type S and Brian O’Conner’s R34 from 2 Fast 2 Furious.
It’s always good news when Hot Wheels decides to immortalize certain cars that they deem as worthy of their craftsmanship and it looks like three more imports are joining their official lineup with two of those being Fast and Furious movie cars. As per Hot Wheels in an official Instagram post they shared earlier today (Oct. 17,2018) they’re adding the Mona Lisa S15 and Brian O’Conner’s R34 bringing the total number of F&F cars available from the iconic die-cast maker to 10.

Captioned with “Drifting to you soon. Stay tuned for what’s coming” Hot Wheels officially teased this trio of Nissans.
The first car, a 2001 Nissan Silvia S15 Spec-C, first hit the screen as the hero car Sean Boswell first gets his taste in drifting in when he faces DK in a parking garage in Japan. Despite his best efforts and instruction from Han, Sean drifts this S15 into rubble. This die-cast S15 is obviously what that Nissan S15 looked like before it crashed. Sporting a very distinct blue and orange livery, it’s par for the course of drift cars in 2006.
The next car is quite obviously Brian O’Conner’s (played by Paul Walker) R34 Nissan Skyline used extensively in arguably the least popular of the F&F franchise in 2 Fast 2 Furious. For 2003 moviegoers who had only seen the R34 Nissan GT-R in Gran Turismo and other video games, seeing Universal Studious immortalize the R34 on the big screen was a big deal. Sporting a C-West body kit and spoiler, this R34 probably will be a staple for any Nissan or F&F collector.
Finally, the last car teased and not in the F&F movies is the 1989 Nissan Skyline R32, one of the first Skylines that’s become popular to import into the United States.
Priced at a couple bucks a pop, these cars should be favorite stocking stuffers this holiday season.
I’m curious to see what other cars Hot Wheels comes out with, particularly their imports.
