Honda Super Tuner Legends series joins Hot Wheels Legends tour

(May 13, 2019) Honda will bring the excitement of Honda tuner vehicles to the second annual Hot Wheels Legends Tour, a national search for a life-size custom car worthy of being immortalized as a Hot Wheels toy car. The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series, the exclusive live custom tuner component of the Legends Tour, will be making select stops beginning on Saturday, May 18, at the Mattel headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., followed by stops in Denver (Aug. 10), Seattle (Aug. 24) and Santa Clarita, Calif. (Oct. 19).

The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series will add a tuner component to the 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour, with a panel of expert judges selecting one Honda vehicle from each stop as a Honda Super Tuner Finalist.

The four finalists will compete for the "Honda Super Tuner" title, which includes the opportunity to have their vehicle displayed at the SEMA Show, the industry's premier automotive specialty products trade event, in Las Vegas, November 5-8.

All three Honda Super Tuner Legends Series stops following the kick-off event in El Segundo will take place at Walmart store parking lots as part of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour. This will give attendees the chance to learn about Honda's history with Hot Wheels, showcase some of the most interesting Honda tuner vehicles in each region, pick up a reusable Honda tote and check out Honda's exclusive Civic Type R that was featured at Honda's 2018 SEMA exhibit.

Hot Wheels Legends Tour

The first-ever Hot Wheels Legends Tour was held in 2018 to commemorate the toy car's 50th anniversary and drew in more than 3,600 cars and 65,000 fans. Hot Wheels aficionados from across the country entered their life-size custom cars in the hope of it being the winning vehicle chosen to be made into a Hot Wheels toy car. This year, Hot Wheels has partnered with brands including Honda, Mobil 1, Dickies, Microsoft Xbox and Mechanix, expanding the Legends Tour to include more than 18 stops throughout the country at Walmart stores in cities with deep-rooted ties to car culture.

Honda vehicles are favorites of car enthusiasts and the tuner crowd – owners who customize their vehicles with top-of-the line enhancements.

The company has celebrated this relationship at SEMA and other exhibitions and rallies, honoring those who make Honda vehicles an expression of their unique personality. This commitment includes the creation of Honda Genuine Accessories that offer vehicle owners the ability to personalize their builds, while enhancing appearance, performance and functionality.

For nearly two decades, Honda and Hot Wheels have partnered to design dozens of Honda Hot Wheels toys, including 20 currently in production. In 2018, Hot Wheels released a series of eight iconic 1:64 scaled die-cast Honda Hot Wheels toys, including the Honda CR-X, '90 Honda Civic EF, Honda Civic Coupe, Honda Civic Si, Honda Monkey Z50, Honda Racer 5, Honda S2000 and Honda Odyssey.
