All Time Favorite List - 1989 Speed Fleet - Pontiac Banshee

Now this is a perfect Hot Wheels car. Based on an actual car - a prototype built by Pontiac in 1988. It has a futuristic look, smooth and sleek. It has some familiar lines (1990's Firebird) but it is unlike anything on the road then or now. The "Ultra Hot" rims compliment the look of this model particularly well and the colour of the original release (1989) is true to the one-of-a-kind show-car.

It is amusing to think that the technology of this car was  extreme for its time, and yet conveniences like GPS and rear view cameras are commonplace today. My inner child sometimes feels like he has been transported to the future.
