Will the upcoming release of the Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Pink Edition 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R be as hot as its color?

Introducing the Hot Wheels 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R

This formally known “Pink Party Car” is set to release April 16, 2024 at 9am PT on the hot wheels website. The unique Hot Wheels casting has been catching the eye of every diecast collector with its vibrant pink color that Hot Wheels is calling Spectraflame Pink. You might recognize this color along with similar variations from earlier castings such as the famous pink Volkswagen ‘Beach Bomb’. Spectraflame pink made its debut as a part of the Hot Wheels Sweet Sixteen collection in 1969 on the Custom Mustang. Although the bright pink is what catches your attention, but don’t let it blind from its other intricate details such as the license plate and the Cobra logo. One over looked detail of many Hot Wheels cars is the license plate that adds a special touch to the car. In this case the plate reads “PNKSTNG”. Alongside the license plate are two white stripes and Cobra emblems that follow both sides of the car, key signature details that can’t be forgotten when replicating the legendary car.

Engine Bay of the Pink Party Car

One of the most loved details of the RLC collection line by many collectors is the engine bay. Although missing details from the life-sized car, it is still impressive. This 1:64 diecast might contain most of the details of the actual car including a 5.0 liter cobra engine but it definitely won’t push out 235 horsepower.

Interior of the 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R

Moving from the engine bay to the interior comes complex details for a 1:64 scale model. The interior features two seats, a dashboard, a center console, and, of course, a shifter all in molded pearl white. From the body to the base is a fully metal chassis painted matte black. Finally you got to have wheels to roll, so this diecast sits on five spoke Real Rider wheels with a metal brush finish.


While we don’t have one on hand, Mattel provides numerous photos on their site for us to see each up-close detail. The Hot Wheels RLC Exclusive Pink Edition 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R will be packaged on an illustrated card featuring the Hot Wheels logo at the top, the Red Line Club trademark, and a detailed life-like image of the car, just like most Red Line Club cars. It is said to be incased in a Kar Keepers clamshell case. Now the question remains, will you be going for this casting?
