If you’re still drooling over the C5 Corvette that Hot Wheels turned into the ultimate ride for Darth Vader, the company will finally let anyone take it for a spin. But not the original, that’s probably driven around by Hot Wheels’ CEO. The rest of us will have to settle for this remote control version that’s about a foot-and-a-half long — so at least you won’t need a garage to store it.
When available later this year it will include a wireless remote, a rechargeable battery, and the reminder that the bad guys always have the best vehicles. And just like with the full-size version, the running boards on this RC model light-up red with lightsaber sound effects every time you turn them on. That should be a standard feature on every car.
