Chevrolet has teamed up with Hot Wheels once again, this time to organize a tour that will see a number of the automaker’s performance cars, including some Hot Wheels specials, take part in a road trip designed to kick off the summer cruising season.
Called the Hot Rod Power Tour, the trip will start this Saturday, in Arlington, Texas, and will wrap up six days later in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The route will include stops in Texarkana and Little Rock, Arkansas, Memphis, Tennessee, Birmingham, Alabama, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, and at each of these stops thousands of additional spectators and local hot rods are expected to show up.
From Chevrolet, there will be the stars of last year’s SEMA show
including a 1967 Camaro Hot Wheels concept car as well as the latest Camaro Hot Wheels Edition
and Camaro Convertible
. There will also be a couple of Corvettes including a Corvette 427 Collector Edition Convertible.
But it won’t just be about the cars, as Chevrolet Performance will also be present, showcasing a range of its performance parts. These will include LSX454R, ZZ572 and ZZ383 crate engines; a partial chassis with an LS376/575 engine and 4L85E transmission installed; an LSA engine/4L85E transmission Connect & Cruise powertrain package; and a parts board with critical components like engine controllers and other vehicle-specific parts.
