There’s a story to go with this particular Ferrari 599XX by Hot Wheels....

Way before I found this “regular” 599XX back in 2014 (I say regular as in the basic version of the particular model instead of the $TH version), I had a mixed encounter with what would have been my very first $uper find in the wild. I was out with my girlfriend at a hypermart one evening, and as usual would pop by the toys section to see what’s new. As luck would have it, the pegs were freshly restocked and begging for me to rifle through them. I immediately began my search for the $TH 599XX. Lo and behold, I saw the card art that depicted the $TH Ferrari right at the back, and pulled it out to inspect my lucky find. To my horror, the car was STOLEN. All I had in my hands was the empty packaging that would’ve held the car of my dreams. I was really emotional the rest of the day. Oh, what could’ve been....

In the end, I settled for this regular ‘Rari. Not bad in its own right, but wouldn’t the $uper have been better? I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.....

Anyway, back to this car. It was one of the last Ferrari toys made by HW before they lost the licensing to do Ferrari models. It suffers from ‘largerearwheel-itis’ but it’s still a stunner.

Thanks for reading my long story and viewing the photos.

Have a nice day!
