Hot Wheels Launches A 1:64 Replica Of IWC Racing’s Goodwood-Winning Gullwing SL

Switzerland’s International Watch Company has a long history of official involvement in high-profile motorsport competition, with the Schaffhausen-based horological outfit famously signing on as an official partner of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team starting in 2013. More recently, IWC has been campaigning an HK-Engineering-prepped 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” with 13-time Grand Prix winner and F1 driver-turned TV personality (and IWC ambassador), David Coulthard at the helm.

Having won the Tony Graze trophy at Goodwood in 2019, Hot Wheels is now celebrating IWC Racing’s recent achievements via the release of a 1:64 scale diecast version of the team’s race “Euro Hauler” transporter, which houses a removable replica of the Gullwing at the same scale. The packaging also appears to depict the West Sussex race track where Coulthard piloted the elite vintage racer to victory in 2019. In addition to a replica livery, the 1:64 scale Gullwing wears a #68, in reference to the year IWC was founded in the 19th century, and the year Hot Wheels was formed in the 20th. Pricing and other official information regarding the Hot Wheels x IWC Racing Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Euro Hauler’s release haven’t been unveiled, though Hot Wheels did state it will have more collaborations with IWC in the future.
