'Hot Wheels Unleashed' Will Let You Race In Style With Gucci's Cadillac Seville This Winter

Hot Wheels Unleashed is an action-packed arcade-style racing experience featuring Hot Wheels cars and sky-high tracks.

Gamers can get ready to drift, boost, jump and crash on Hot Wheels’ iconic orange tracks in various single player game modes. Gamers can also challenge friends in multiplayer races, both online and offline, leveraging a split screen mode.

Hot Wheels Unleashed offers players the opportunity to drive the cars as if they were playing with the die-cast toys. The gameplay includes adrenaline-filled races, an extended choice of Hot Wheels vehicles with different attributes and rarity levels that players can customize with different skins, and jaw-dropping tracks set in everyday-life locations with special track pieces and interactive items.

The game also features a revolutionary Track Editor enabling players to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the game’s community.

Following up on the presentation of the limited-edition Hot Wheels x Gucci Cadillac Seville, the 1:64th scale replica of the legendary “Seville by Gucci” Cadillac is confirmed for Hot Wheels Unleashed, coming to the game sometime in the coming months.

This rare collectible celebrates Gucci’s centennial anniversary and pays homage to the vehicle that expanded their brand’s universe - transcending time, culture, and art. In 1978, Aldo Gucci himself designed the special edition car which he called “a rare possession of distinction, beauty, and ultimate luxury.” This holds true for our 1:64th scale die-cast model replica with exquisite deco authentic to the original Cadillac “Seville by Gucci” - from the monogram motif on the roof to the gold piping on dark leather seats. 

Partnering with Milestone, the leading global racing game developer behind the title, Gucci’s famed ride will join the roster of collectable unique cars featured in the game that racers can drift, boost, jump, and crash in the action-packed arcade-style racing experience.

For the occasion and paying homage to this sought-after collectible, a group of creators was invited by Gucci to use the Hot Wheels x Gucci Cadillac Seville as the starting point to express their creativity. Nostalgia-infused illustrator H3C and photographers Duane Shot Toys and Felix Hernandez, both known for their shots portraying evocative miniature scenes, used multiple mediums, reflecting on the legendary status of the car, playing with its retro aesthetic to mix the present and the past.

Hot Wheels Unleashed is available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
