All the greatest Hot Wheels cars available to race
The starting grid roster features 66 vehicles, including Hot Wheels most celebrated original designs over the brand’s 53-year history such as Boneshaker™, Rodger Dodger™ and Twin Mill™, automotive icons of pop culture such as the Batmobile from DC™, Party Wagon from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snoopy from Peanuts, Time Machine from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Back to the Future, K.I.T.T. from NBC’s Knight Rider and OEMs including Audi, Ford, Honda and many others.
Each vehicle has specialized attributes and rarity levels that players can upgrade. Hot Wheels original designs and OEMs can also be personalized with unique liveries via the Livery Editor, where players can also upload their creations or download designs from the community.
Six immersive racing environments to choose from
Hot Wheels Unleashed™ features six environments, each with its own immersive playground and unique style: Garage, Skyscraper, College Campus, Skatepark, Track Room (a special stage designed specifically to showcase the freedom of the Track Builder feature) and The Basement, a customizable space, where players can rearrange furniture and accessories with hundreds of customization options.
Best of all – you can create your own racetrack using the Track Builder!

More than 20 modules are available at launch, such as T-Rex Escape, Spider Ambush and Hungry Cobra. The Track Builder also gives players the chance to share creations within the game or download and enjoy tracks made by fellow players.
Game expansions will keep the competition fresh
Keeping the competition fresh, the ongoing content plan for Hot Wheels Unleashed™ will include more vehicles from iconic brands such as Street Fighter™, Masters of the Universe™, DC, Barbie™, along with OEMs with a racing pedigree like Aston Martin, BMW and McLaren™.
Free and premium DLCs will be released periodically featuring vehicles, track builder modules, customization items and exclusive themed expansion sets introducing new environments.
