We Have A Winner!
Luis Rodriguez And His "2Jetz"

When Hot Wheels launched the original “Sweet 16” die-cast cars in 1968, they were said to be some of the most influential and legendary cars in automotive history. And this year we hit the road to find custom cars worthy of joining them as a Hot Wheels Legend.

After a 15 city nation-wide tour, it all culminated at SEMA 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, where Luis Rodriguez and his "2JETZ" was selected as the winner. The 2JETZ will be immortalized as a Hot Wheels Legend and get made into a die-cast car sold around the world.

What we looked for



Have you ever seen a car and said, “That looks like a Hot Wheels?” We’re looking for that “Hot Wheels-ness” that nails the amazing performance and outrageous design we’re known for.



We’ve made over 25,000 unique vehicle models in the past 50 years, so we’re looking for something with unique details that stands out from the rest.


Garage Spirit

It’s built, not bought, just like Hot Wheels.  We’re looking to see some elbow grease that exemplifies the challenger spirit it took to build.

Garage Spirit

Entries were judged by five criteria (20 points per criteria = 100 points total). Even Legends play by the rules! Check out the full criteria in the Official Rules.
