After an extensive global search, the 2023 Hot Wheels Legends Tour has finally discovered a vehicle deserving of being immortalized in the form of a 1:64 toy.

Owned and built by Chris Watson from New Zealand, the little Japanese roadster is known as Chimera. It draws inspiration from the Cyberpunk aesthetic and Kaido Racer culture.
