Hot Wheels Releases Beatles-Inspired Series

By: Renee Grant

Mattel, the makers of Hot Wheels, has unveiled a new series of toy cars inspired by five iconic Beatles albums.

The cars feature designs modeled after the group’s 1968 self-titled album (The White Album), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Rubber Soul, Magical Mystery Tour, and the American edition of the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack.

The car types vary for each album, with the self-titled album featuring a “Hiway Hauler”, Sgt. Pepper’s is a “’67 Austin Mini Van”, Rubber Soul is a “Ford Transit Super Van”, Magical Mystery Tour is a “Haulin’ Gas”, and A Hard Day’s Night is a “Dairy Delivery.”

This isn’t the first time Mattel has issued cars inspired by the band. Last summer, the company released a set of cars with a Yellow Submarine theme.

Each of the cars cost $4.99 and will be available in stores and online.
